Hot Rod Cameras Canon 5D Mark II PL Mount
Illya Friedman from Hot Rod Cameras stopped by my office the other day with his Canon 5D Mark II PL Mount. We have seen plenty Canon 7D mods, but this is one of the few 5D PL’s I have seen in person. I only had the camera for a few minutes. I got the chance to shoot with it and take these stills. It worked flawlessly. As you can see in the photos, the mirror has been removed and been replaced by a gate to protect the sensor. Illya brought a 50mm Zeiss
Compact Prime PL Mount with the camera. The Zeiss CP.2 Primes will have interchangeable mounts EF included. This could be the future of the 5D. No mention of price yet for the modification.

Canon Rumors posted this photo of a Canon 5D Mark II PL mount. The mirror has been removed. Apparently it will still take photos and shoot video. There were no real details along with the photo. No mention of lens restrictions on CR. They show the process of deconstructing the camera prior to changing the mount. Very Detailed Photos of the process here.Expect to see more cool items like this coming out of NAB this weekend. Cinema 5D will be there in full force. Look for NAB updates all next week.
