This Adapter Lets You Mount Any Giant Lens On Your Tiny Smartphone

Want to mount a giant camera lens onto your smartphone? The Chinese company Cinematic International Company Limited has created a single universal adapter just for you. It lets you mount most lenses out there to pretty much any smartphone. You can see a glimpse of it in action in the 2-minute video above by No Film School.

Cinematics International Company Limited is a Shenzhen, China-based company that has been manufacturing photography equipment out of its own factory for over a decade now. It was showing off its new lens-to-smartphone adapter at NAB 2018 in Las Vegas, which is where No Film School came across it.

The company says that the adapter supports too many lens mounts to list — Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sony E are just a few of the common ones supported.

Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh may be the type of creative being targeted with this adapter: his latest feature film, Unsane, was shot entirely on the iPhone. And as the use of smartphones for serious photo and video productions continues to heat up, so does the market for high-end attachments.

No word on when this adapter will hit the market or how much it’ll cost, but keep your eye on the Cinematic International online store if you’re interested in picking one up for yourself.
