LPLx2VV / PLx2VV / PLx2 / PLx1.4 MII

LPLx2VV Extender

The LPLx2 VV Optical Extender doubles the focal length of Vista Vision Format LPL mount lenses.
It compact optical and mechanical design makes it compatible with a wide range of lenses. High-index, low-dispersion glass ensures the highest possible resolution and contrast with minimal optical degradation.
The extender transmits light over four times the area with a decrease in brightness by two f-stops and has a recommended maximum input T-stop of 1.9. The LPLx2 VV mounts directly to native LPL mount lenses and cameras.

PLx2VV Extender

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 four 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.

PLx2 Extender

While most extenders can only physically fit on a limited range of lenses, the design of the PLx2 accommodates more spherical and anamorphic PL mount lenses than any other doubler on the market. This is achieved by designing the extender with a deep-set optical assembly, thus, making it possible to use lenses with long protruding rear elements.
The PLx2 will mount perfectly to any digital camera with a native PL mount. It will also clear the spinning mirror on ARRI and Aaton 35 mm cameras.
Optically, the PLx2 projects an image circle large enough to cover all commonly used 35 mm formats including 5K on RED Epic and 4:3 full frame on ARRI Alexa.
Maximum image diameter: 34.5 mm
Maximum input T-stop: 1.9

PLx1.4 MII Extender

The PLx1.4 Mark II extends the focal length of S35 PL mount lenses by a factor of 1.4 while only losing one stop in the process. The recommended maximum input T-stop is 1.6. In addition to extending the focal length of a lens, the PLx1.4 Mark II enlarges the projected image circle enabling a wide range of standard 35mm format primes and zooms to cover the full 6K frame on the RED Dragon sensor.
The PLx1.4 Mark II is optimized for digital cameras that expect telecentric lens design.
Maximum image diameter: 34.5mm
Maximum T-stop: 1.6
