Adapter???

I just recently got my BPCC (BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camara) and I have a variety of Canon lenses, what are your suggestions for the best adapter for this type of lenses with this camera???

I have the same camera bro! For cannon lenses i recommend the fotodiox one since it has iris control (not the one on the lens but adds another one iris and closes that one) but if you really want to get the most out of your lenses get the new BMPCC to EF speed booster i once rented the one for Nikon lenses and it reallly makes the pocket cam shine giving you that nice depth of field, but if that is not the look you are going for or you don't want to drop the $550+ price tag the fotodiox one is a simple and practical solution! Saludos paisano.

Gracias!!! I am actually going to get the Metabones Canon FD Lens to Micro Four Thirds Mount Camera Speed Booster... I've heard this one is pretty good especially when it comes to the wide shots...

The Metabones FD M4/3 adapter is very well made and does a great job.

The only other adapter I would look at is this Polish one made by ciecio7 on eBay that is machined out of a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum. I've owned one for 4 years and it's rock solid. There are two versions available, one with a tripod mount and one without.
