Canon FD 50mm SSC F1.4 lens
Enjoy beautiful vintage look images with this Canon FD 50mm lens. We have a full range of Canon FD lenses to hire in London from Gear Factory, or you can pick and choose the right ones for your project. Not only do they offer a great classic look but this lens but we had EDMIKA modernise them by fitting them with new Canon EF mounts. They fit straight onto popular cameras such as the Canon 5D Mark II or the Blackmagic Production Camera or URSA Mini Pro. The lens covers a full frame sensor, making perfect for larger digital cinema cameras too. Now you can achieve a great filmic look whatever camera you choose.
Canon FD lenses are particularly desirable today as they offer a real classic look which takes the edge of characterless modern digital footage. Expect some lens flaring, sharp in-focus areas with a beautiful blur to the backgrounds. Focus fall-off is smooth. The colours are gentle but vivid.
The lens has manual functions only – no autofocus or autoiris function. They are vintage after all. Oh, we’ve also added a step-up front so you can pair them with 77mm screw-in filters.
Pick the lenses you need individually or save time and money by hiring the whole set, ranging from 20mm to 100mm.
