Active Nikon F lens mount
Open, WishlistPublic


I am not sure how many people have Nikon DLSR but for sure all of them would highly appreciate getting the Axiom Beta with an active Nikon F lens mount.

Maybe it is a task very good to fulfill for Axiom Beta and Axiom Gamma. ;-)

How many Nikon lenses do you regularly use for filmmaking that only have electronic aperture control?

I am a hobby photographer with a quite good (and expansive) equipment. I hardly do filmmaking, but I thought of a great chance when I found your crowd funding campaign. :-)

I use the following lenses:

*) NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 24-70 mm 1:2,8G ED

*) NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 70-200 mm 1:2,8G ED VR II

*) SIGMA 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG APO OS HSM

*) SIGMA 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

The Nikon 24-70 mm is the one I use most.

As far as I know all of these lenses have only electronic aperture control. I do not know any way to control aperture without the camera body.
