Lomo 20-120mm T3.2 PL Mount Zoom

Lomo 35OPF18-1, 20-120mm T3.2 lens in PL mount. Cleaned and serviced in 2019 by a former Angénieux technician in Paris. The finest cinema zoom ever made by the Soviets. Features a convenient zoom range and extremely close focus: as little as 0.8m at 120mm. You can get a close-up of a human eye. Fitted with a modern follow focus gear. Comes with a lens support for 19mm studio setup. Additional accessories (rods, baseplate, etc.) available upon request for $10 extra/day. The lens has a front diameter of 147mm which typically requires a 6x6 mattebox. My O'Connor O-Box can fit this lens but will make the 20-28mm range unusable. If that's not an issue, my O-Box kit can be included upon request for an additional $15/day. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH 15MM RODS. USE OF A LENS SUPPORT IS REQUIRED OR YOU RISK DAMAGING THE MOUNT. THE LENS WEIGHS OVER 13LBS. NOTE: This is an early copy of an 80s Soviet cinema zoom lens. It has significant vignetting when wide open, an unusual (although I think it's beautiful) bokeh, and depending on the sensor size of your camera, you risk not being entirely covered in the wide end (on Ursa Mini 4.6k PL, for example, full sensor coverage starts at 22mm). If you're interested but not sure that this is the lens for you, contact me and we can arrange for a test with your camera.

Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K PL SHOOTING KIT (Lens, Tripod, Accessories)

Full ready-to-shoot kit. Full package detailed below. The camera is the original Ursa Mini (not the Pro, not the Pro G2), but still works great and, yes, it does shoot RAW. I've shot with this for commercials, docs, corporate interviews, short films, and even a micro-budget narrative feature. The lens is a custom rehouse job with full standard cine gears and full manual control based on an Angénieux design. The full package contents are: – Ursa Mini 4.6k PL camera body and top handle/mount kit – Teris V12 tripod kit – 28-70 T3 PL-mount lens – O'Connor O-Box with top flag, side flags, bellows, 2x PV filter trays and 2x 4x4 filter trays – OLED HD Ursa Mini Viewfinder – Blackmagic Video Assist (HD display, 5") with a magic arm for mounting on camera and an SD card for recording Prores dailies (TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE) – Blackmagic OEM shoulder kit with plate, grip, and 15mm carbon fiber rods – VCT-14 baseplate for use with the shoulder mount on a tripod – 2x256GB Transcend CFast 2.0 cards (32 mins/card at 4:1 RAW) with a USB 3 card reader – 2x160Wh V-Mount batteries with additional D-Tap and USB output. 1 charger each, 2-3 hours of uptime per fully charged battery depending on configuration. – AC Power supply – Tilta FF-03 manual Follow focus – Plenty of backup cables and screws (you lose it, you buy it) If you don't require the full package, let me know and you can mix and match accessories. I will offer discounts if you don't need large potions of the package. I also can provide the following optional extras. If you'd like to use them, let me know as part of your request. Prices will follow the same discounts as the base price for multi-day rentals: +$10/day: Tilta 19mm studio dovetail baseplate combo with 19mm studio rods +$15/day: Nucleus-M wireless FF and zoom control kit, 2 motors, 15mm and 19mm rods compatible +$50/day: Replace the 28-70 T3 lens with a Lomo 20-120 T3.2, a massive yet beautiful Soviet cinema zoom from 1986. Its macro functionality lets you go from a wide angle at 20mm to frame a single human eyeball with tack-sharp focus and incredible bokeh in 4k. The 19mm studio kit is required to use this lense and is included with it for free. The lens weighs 12lbs by itself, so it is strongly not advised for handheld work. The included tripod can support this setup but will require proper and careful balancing to do so. I find that two batteries and two cards are typically sufficient for a normal shooting day. If you're shooting a lot or if you don't have easy access to power and DIT, I'd recommend picking up a couple of extra cards and batteries. If you have any questions or interest about the package or my experience with it, please reach out! The package also comes with the following goodies that make this camera fully ready to shoot: – OLED HD Ursa Mini Viewfinder – Blackmagic Video Assist (HD display, 5") with a magic arm for mounting on camera and an SD card for recording Prores dailies – Blackmagic OEM shoulder kit with plate, grip, and 15mm carbon fiber rods – VCT-14 baseplate for use with the shoulder mount on a tripod – 2x256GB Transcend CFast 2.0 cards (32 mins/card at 4:1 RAW) with a USB 3 card reader – 2x160Wh V-Mount batteries with additional D-Tap and USB output. 1 charger each, 2-3 hours of uptime per fully charged battery depending on configuration. – AC Power supply – Tilta FF-03 manual Follow focus – Plenty of backup cables and screws (you lose it, you buy it) I also can provide the following optional extras.

Prices will follow the same discounts as the base price for multi-day rentals: +$10/day: Tilta 19mm studio dovetail baseplate combo with 19mm studio rods +$10/day: Firecrest IRND 3/6/9 6x6 filter series. Note: these filters *do not* come with a mattebox (unfortunate and long story involving a previous renter :( ) +$15/day: Nucleus-M wireless FF and zoom control kit, 2 motors, 15mm and 19mm rods compatible +$50/day: Replace the 28-70 T3 lens with a Lomo 20-120 T3.2, a massive yet beautiful Soviet cinema zoom from 1986. Its macro functionality lets you go from a wide angle at 20mm to frame a single human eyeball with tack-sharp focus and incredible bokeh in 4k. The 19mm studio kit is included with the lens for free. The lens weighs 12lbs by itself, so it is strongly not recommended for handheld work. Finally, note that I *do not have* a tripod! I find that every setup and shoot demands different camera support, so you'll have to check elsewhere for now. I find that two batteries and two cards is typically sufficient for a normal shooting day. But if you're shooting a lot or if you don't have easy access to power and DIT, I'd recommend picking up a couple of extra cards and batteries along with whatever tripod you end up getting.

Teris V12L Tripod Kit (Sachtler clone)

This is a solid clone of a Sachtler FSB-8 tripod for half the price. It's rated to support up to 12kg, I would recommend using about half that, but is a great solution for ENG packages and for lightweight production/cinema cameras (Ursa Mini, FS7, Alexa Mini, etc.) Includes fluid head, legs, soft case, top plate, and extra screws. You're responsible for bringing back all provided items in good working condition. Manufacturer's specs below, please contact me for any questions. Max load: 12KG Max Length:1780mm Min Length: 670mm Net weight of the kit: 7KG Head weight: 2.67KG Pipe diameter: 16mm 4 modes pitch damping 4 modes lateral damping 8 modes dynamic balance 100mm bowl

Very convenient pick up and well maintained kit. On top of that Paul is very arranging!

Paul and his Ursa Mini 4.6K kit was great. Couldn’t ask for better.

Thanks for everything! Looking forward to doing business again.

Great rental and great lens!

Very accommodating. Great experience!

Great Kitter!
