Now Hiring – Canon FD Lenses

The Gear Factory now offers a set of Canon FD lenses ranging from 20mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 100mm. Pick and choose the lenses you need or just hire the whole set at once!

We love glass at the Gear Factory and know how important it is to get the right look and feel for your projects. Afterall, it’s your lens choice as much as anything that will really define what your picture looks like.

Many filmmakers turn to a classic or vintage lens as a way to add character and distinction to their footage. Older lenses help to give energy, interest and add a little ‘imperfection’ to otherwise perfect, but lifeless, digital images. Therefore we are pleased to offer this set Canon FD lenses to sit alongside our vintage Nikon prime set, and our best selling Canon K35s.

Fitted with native EF mounts, thanks to the guys at EDMIKA, our Canon FDs fit any EF camera. They offer full-frame coverage and we’ve added a step up front to fit 77mm screw-in filters.  Perfect paired with the Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro or 4k Production Camera. Alternatively, with an EF adapter use them on your Sony E mount cameras like the A7s as well as MFT cameras like the GH5. Of course being full-frame they also cover 6k, 8K and Vistavision Red cameras with an EF mount.

A cousin of the Oscar-winning K35s, the FD range offers a similar style image, with beautiful bokeh, subtle lens flare and gorgeous focal falloff. Now you can achieve those stunning visuals at a price point that will fit any budget. Try these for your fashion film, or add a different visual flavour to your short film.
