Birger Electronic Canon EF Adapter For Panasonic AF100.
***UPDATE. Video Replaced with photo to stay current.
We recently picked up a Panasonic AF100 for a short documentary we are shooting at SXSW this year. Birger Engineering is making an electronic adapter to work with Canon EF lenses. This will let you control iris with the AF100 in camera. This will also make the entire Canon EF lineup available for the AF100. The adapter will cost around $700 US and should be available by Mid February. Here is a rip from their website.
“The rumors are true! Birger is coming out with a lens control system for EF mount lenses on the Panasonic AF100. Control for the iris, both auto and manual, will be from the camera. Continuous (video-style) auto-focus will be supported on most Canon “L-series” lenses. Power is provided by the camera for most lenses. Image stabilization is supported on “IS” lenses, and this feature can be turned on or off from the lens. Ships 14 February 2011. MSRP $700 for the adapter. Optional cinema-style remote control, available at additional cost, to be announced January 2011.”
