The PLx2 VV optical extender doubles the focal length of Vista Vision Format PL mount lenses. The extender is the larger version of our well-received PLx2 adapter. Thanks to its compact optical and mechanical design, the PLx2 VV is compatible with a wide range of lenses. 

The PLx2 VV features high-index, low-dispersion glass to ensure the highest possible resolution and contrast with minimal optical degradation. In doubling the image size, the transmitted light is spread over 4 times the area, decreasing the brightness by two f-stops. The optical design has been optimized for modern lenses and digital cameras, and the maximum input T-Stop is 1.9. 

The PLx2 VV is designed to mount to any digital cinema camera with a native PL mount. The UMS Mount System makes it easy to change the mount to Canon EF, Sony E or others without re-shimming.

Technical specifications


Modern cameras require high quality optics designed and optimized for electronic sensors. PL Extenders increase the focal length of 35 mm PL mount lenses. Our extenders feature high-index, low-dispersion glass and flare optimized systems to ensure the highest possible resolution and contrast with minimal optical degradation. The highly telecentric optical design avoids all micro lens issues.
