About

 NOW YOUR POCKET 6K CAN BE COMPATIBLE WITH NEARLY ALL PL LENSES!!!

How is this different from any old "snap-in" EF to PL adapter?

 The "snap-in" type adapters are excruciatingly limited in their flange depth. What this means is that you cannot put any lenses in that have normal PL mounts! Personally, I've yet to work with a lens that is compatible with the snap-in kinds of adapters.

The Bezamod completely bypasses the EF mount, eliminating the limitations set by the EF locking pins. Bezamod P6K is a user-friendly camera modification that works just like many other professional cinema-grade interchangeable lens mounts. This one is custom made specifically to match the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K!

News! Atlas Anamorphics Tested and Verified (more to come) 

 Originally designed to turn the URSA Mini EF into a camera without a fixed lens mount (good news URSA Mini Classic owners: the new version is still URSA Mini compatible, with some lens restrictions)

Originally a modification to use with my personal lens set, the Bezamod turned out to be far more versatile than expected!

When the only option to purchase a URSA Mini was EF or PL, I used this modification to switch between EF and PL lenses on numerous professional commercial and narrative film sets in Los Angeles.

Filming a Western with the Bezamod at Paramount Ranch

Now available to everyone!

Seeing the URSA Mini go pro and receive a manufacturer-made PL lens mount, I closed direct sales at the time for the Bezamod (and continued to use mine on my URSA Mini 4.6K EF alongside my URSA Mini Pro for years).

Risks and challenges

I've learned and grown from past experiences with Kickstarter and other products I've brought to market; so there will be a very close eye kept on managing manufacturing expectations!

This will be a great opportunity for Pocket 6K users to connect many of their favorite cinema lenses such as Zeiss CP-series, Xeens, and even Arri Master Primes!
