LPLx2 VV Optical Extender

The LPLx2 VV Optical Extender from IB/E Optics doubles the focal length of Large Format LPL mount lenses. Light loss is  approximately 2 T-stops. Recommended maximum aperture setting on the lens being used is T1.9.

The LPLx2 VV attaches to the rear of an LPL mount lens, and then goes directly into the LPL mount of an Alexa LF or any other LPL mount camera.

So, for example, if you attached the IB/E Optics LPLx2 VV to a Signature Prime 125mm, opened to T2.0, you would have the equivalent of a 250 mm at T4.0.

LPL – UMS Mount Adapter

The LPL-UMS Mount Adapter is the newest addition to the UMS Mount System used on many IB/E Optics products, including the Large Format Raptor Macro lenses, the Fujinon Zoom Conversion Kit, and the Canon Zoom Conversion Kit. The system makes it easy to quickly swap between PL, EF, E, F, FZ, MFT and now LPL mounts in the field without re-shimming or adjusting back focus.

PL-LPL Mechanical Adapter

IB/E Optics’ PL-LPL Mechanical Adapter lets you attach almost any PL mount lens onto an LPL mount camera (e.g. Alexa LF). If you are shooting a film with a combination of LPL and PL lenses, attaching a PL-LPL Adapter to each PL lens will save lots of time.

Smartfinder Pro

The Smartfinder Pro is a Director’s Viewfinder for lenses from S35 to Full Format and up to 65mm format. It works with an iPhone and uses IB/E Optic’s UMS Universal Mount System. This includes ARRI LPL, XPL and PL.
