Duclos Lenses is regarded as the premier high quality motion picture optics shop. They take premium cinema lenses and modify them as well as make repairs. Duclos also makes some of their own products, the newest of which is the Multi-Mount.
Metabones lens adapters are some of our most popular rentals. Pretty much every time someone rents a Sony FS100 or FS700 from us they also want a Metabones adapter to go with it so they can use Canon glass instead of Sony’s less popular lenses.
This makes us very happy to announce that we now have the brand new Metabones Speedbooster for rent. It has the same main functionality as the original Metabones adapter allowing you to attach Canon glass to Sony cameras, but has the added benefits of making your lenses both wider and faster.
The Speed Booster increases aperture by one full stop and also makes the lens .71x wider. This means that if you are shooting with a 50mm f/1.2 lens, this adapter essential makes it a 35mm f/0.9 lens. The added light can definitely make a use difference when in a low-light situation.
If you’re interested in renting the Metabones Speed Booster adapter you can see more about it here on our website.
The Metabones Speedbooster is also available for purchase at B&H.
