Camera Mounts | ZEISS Photography (2022)

ZEISS Lenses for SLR Cameras.

The manually focusable ZEISS SLR lenses are available with EF bayonet (ZE), F bayonet (ZF.2), K bayonet (ZK) and the M42 screw threads (ZS). The possibilities of using scene programs, different types of exposure metering and individualized functions can be varied depending on the camera model.

ZF.2

SLR lenses with F bayonet mount for cameras from Nikon*.

ZF.2 lenses support all key modes (e.g. aperture priority, shutter priority, program AE or manual exposure settings) on camera models equipped with an electronic interface (e.g. current Nikon DSLR cameras). To do so, simply lock the aperture ring in the largest f-stop (e.g. 16) shown in orange. On camera models without an electronic interface, the aperture is manually set on the lens aperture ring. With some camera models, it is possible to set in the menu whether the lens should be selected using the setting dial on the camera or the aperture ring on the lens. Please note that, for technical reasons, there is no halfway notch between the largest (e.g. 16) and second largest (e.g. 11) f-stop. The focused distance is not transmitted to the camera body.

For details regarding metering modes and further functions, please check the camera´s manual. The ZF.2 lenses accord to the Nikon AI-P standard (manual focus lenses with CPU).

ZE

(Video) Will a simple camera make you a better photographer?? ZEISS IKON TENGOR. Landscape Film Photography

Lenses equipped with an EF bayonet for EOS cameras from Canon*.

The manually focusable ZE lenses (for EF mount) feature electronic shutter control and additional electronic contacts to the camera. All existing exposure programs (P, AV, TV, M) and the AF confirmation function of the camera are supported; lens information (focal length and speed) is passed on to the camera. Certain functions that require the use of AF lenses (various scene modes, A-DEP) are partially unavailable.

ZE lenses are compatible with the EOS camera bodies listed here, and further cameras with EF mount (e.g. cameras for cinematography). When using adapters with electronic contacts on cameras with a different mount (e.g. mirrorless system cameras, cine cameras), we cannot guarantee for the compatibility and functionality of ZE lenses. Therefore, the compatibility specifications of the adapter and the camera manufacturers have to be followed. Using ZE lenses with an adapter is at your own risk. Defects on the lens, the camera or the adapter caused by the use of an inappropriate adapter or by improper use will not be covered by our manufacturer´s warranty.

ZS (only for industrial applications)

SLR lenses for M-42 screw thread.

The manually focusable ZS lenses (for M-42 screw thread) are equipped with a push pin in order to close the aperture. Furthermore, they are equipped with a locking switch to change from manual to automatic aperture control. Due to this, the lens can be comfortably stopped down to working aperture when used with an adapter. The aperture priority can be used as well.

ZF (only for industrial applications)

SLR lenses with F bayonet mount for cameras from Nikon.

The manually focusable ZF lenses (for F mount) are equipped with the AI aperture coupling as well as the pre AI coupling. They do not include CPU coupling. Due to this, exposure metering and control is possible with all corresponding camera models. Used with camera models without AI or fork coupling the aperture is closed to the pre-selected value, but metering and automatic aperture control is not possible.

FAQs

What is so special about Carl Zeiss lenses? ›

High-quality workmanship, outstanding light intensity and legendary bokeh. In contrast to standard autofocus lenses, ZEISS camera lenses offer highly precise, intuitive manual focus. It goes without saying that all other automatic functions are supported by all standard cameras.

What are camera mounts called? ›

A lens mount is an interface – mechanical and often also electrical – between a photographic camera body and a lens.

Why do cameras have different mounts? ›

That's because those manufactures chose to roll out multiple versions of the same camera models with different mounts to increase their compatibility and overall camera sales. These are separate cameras with separate mount receivers, and not a single camera with interchangeable mounts.

How many camera mounts are there? ›

There's one camera trait you need to choose before thinking about features: lens mount. Lens mount determines the availability of accessories such as add-on lenses and flashes. There are currently about 17 different popular lens mounts, which makes camera shopping incredibly complex.

Which lens mount is best? ›

Bayonet mounts are the most favored of these three mounting types, due to the ease and speed of installing and removing lenses from camera bodies, the ability to incorporate electronic contacts using this attachment method, and the repeatable precision afforded by a simpler design.

What mount does Nikon use? ›

The Nikon F-mount makes a host of lenses available to photographers. Used on Nikon SLRs and NIKKOR lenses from the introduction of the Nikon F in 1959 to current models, the bayonet-type F-Mount is the communication link between Nikon SLRs and NIKKOR lenses.

How do I know what type of lens mount? ›

The easiest way to determine the mount is to look at the contacts – they always remain visually identical. The aperture cannot be activated or controlled at all by physical controls on the lens. There is only a switch to control autofocus (and maybe IS).

What is the tripod mount called? ›

The point where the tripod head and the device attach is called the head mount. Most camera equipment includes a built-in female 1/4-20 receptacle, so the majority of tripod heads utilize a male 1/4-20 screw as their head mounts.

What is a mount adapter for a camera? ›

A lens mount adapter is a device that allows a lens from one camera mount to be used on a camera with a different mount. While some manufacturers provide lens mount adapters with full compatibility and autofocus features, most adapters are “dumb”, and cannot transmit electronic data.

How many types of lens mounts are there? ›

Screw lock, breech-lock and bayonet-type lock are the three most important. The first two were (and some still are) used with manual-only lenses. M42 is the most popular screw mount.

How do I know what camera mount I have? ›

There are several factors to consider when selecting a camera mount, particularly, the type of microscope the camera needs to mount to, the make and model of the camera being attached and whether additional optics within the camera mount are required or desired.. The connection to the camera (C-mount, F-mount, T-mount) Optics in the mount (additional relay lens) The connection to the photo port (microscope specific). As. camera mounts are standardized, any C-mount camera can use any C-mount adaptor. (on the camera connection side).. In this case, the image FOV will be smaller than the maximum available microscope FOV but this can be compensated for by using mounts with additional optics to demagnify the image.. Figure 2: Use of additional optics in the camera C-mount.. Camera Sensor Size (mm)Diagonal (mm)Adaptor for max FOVMicroscope FOV (mm)8.46 x 8.4660.3x1612.7 x 12.780.45x, 0.5x, 0.6x1616.9 x 16.9110.7x1625.4 x 25.4161x16 Table 1: Guide to matching the sensor FOV to the microscope FOV using different additional optical adaptors in the camera mounts to maximize imaging area on a microscope with a FOV of 16 mm^2.. Therefore, it is more widely recommended to use larger format sensors, with pixel sizes appropriate for the magnification in the system, to maximize both FOV and resolution and negate the need for use of a magnifier or demagnifier in the mount.. They are generally defined by their thread specifications, but most mount types also have a standard flange focal distance.. A C-mount without a lens within is known as a 1x C-mount and the only function is as an adaptor for the camera to the microscope to secure the camera to the system.. Cameras generally do not have T-mounts, therefore T adaptors or T2 adaptors must be used.. Like all aspects of designing optical systems and components, the correct identification of camera mount necessary for the imaging system is critical to obtaining the best images possible devoid of artefacts with maximum resolution, magnification and FOV.. However, all microscope systems will have different requirements for the C-mount adaptor on the photoport side, therefore microscope C-mounts should be matched to the system itself and can not be interchanged between systems.

Below is the image of how the inner diameter of a lens mount is measured:. Just like different mounts have differences in throat size, inner and outer diameters, flange distances also often vary greatly between different camera systems.. In addition, it allows lens designers to place a more powerful actuator on lenses for faster autofocusing and makes it possible to adapt lenses from other camera systems with longer flange distances via adapters.. To understand the importance of a larger mount and a shorter flange distance, please check out the below video from a Nikon engineer that explains the benefits of the Nikon Z system when compared to Nikon F:. Camera manufacturers themselves often provide adapters with the release of shorter flange distance systems to be able to mount lenses from other camera mounts that they developed in the past, but they almost never provide adapters for competing systems.. What are the different camera mounts?. How do I know which lens mount my camera has?. Which lens mount is the best?. If you use a system that is not listed in the table and would like to help expand it with more data, please use the images in this article to properly measure the lens mount, then provide the information in the comments section below.

In this post, you’ll learn the different types of tripod heads and mounting systems available for photo and video.. A Ball Head is the most common type of tripod used in photography.. A ball head is the best type of tripod head to use for photography.. Let’s go through two common types of quick-release plates you’ll find with tripod heads.. Any quick-release plate you purchase will come with a 1/4-20 screw making it a perfect fit for just about any camera you’re using.. The Tripod Head. Most of these mounts use a ball-head with the option to mount your camera directly on a thread or attach a quick release plate receiver.. I find clamp mounts to be one of the more versatile mounting options since you can always find a place to put them.

Und um allen Kritikern gleich hier die Luft aus den Segeln zu nehmen: Die wie fast immer wesentlich didaktischere und präzisere englische Definition spricht ausdrücklich von der mechanischen und der elektrischen Komponente / Seite ( mechanical and often also electrical ).. Wie ich unten belegen werde, ist es heute nämlich die Software, welche für die Kameras viel wichtiger ist, als die immer noch in den Augen vieler Fotografen und Tester überbewertete Hardware.. In der Anfangszeit der Fotografie war diese sehr rudimentäre Verbindung der zwei Teile und somit auch einfache Definition der Schnittstelle möglich, da die Einstellungen manuell und völlig unabhängig voneinander am Objektiv und an der Kamera durchgeführt wurden.. Die Entscheidung war epochal und hatte exakt die von allen vorausgesagten Wirkungen: Die technischen Befürworter erhielten ein komplett neues technisches Bajonett, das zukunftstauglich und weiter ausbaubar war.. Die Kunden der Firma Canon waren kritisch und beschwerten sich, worauf der Hersteller auch reagierte und dies vor allem deutlich kommunizierte.. Da die alten Fuji X-Objektive (vor allem die weitwinkligen Festbrennweiten) auf Schärfe optimiert wurden, zeigen sie ein sehr langsames Autofokus-Verhalten und sind für die bei Bewegtmotiven erforderlichen kontinuierlichen Autofokus-Verfolgungen der modernen Kamera-Modelle kaum geeignet.. Wer bereits die Probleme der anderen Hersteller bezüglich der de facto unterschiedlichen Bajonette kennt, wird sich fragen, wie es bei Nikon aussieht, da die Firma sich rühmt, dass sie seit 1959 - d.h. seit fast 60 Jahren - immer noch dasselbe F-Bajonett / F-Mount verwendet.. Um es vorweg zu nehmen: Obwohl ich seit Jahrzehnten auch mit Nikon-Kameras und Objektiven fotografiere, bin ich glücklich, dass sich andere, amerikanische Fotografen bereits durch das absolute Chaos bei Nikon-Bajonetten (ich benutze bewusst den Plural) durchgearbeitet haben und ich auf deren beeindruckende Auflistung der Probleme und hier zu den neuen AF-P-Objektiven verweisen kann.. Der Adapter belegt ferner, dass die Technikabteilung und die Herstellung auf absehbare Zeit nicht in der Lage sind, für das neue Bajonett eine ausreichende Anzahl geeigneter Objektive zu entwickeln und zu produzieren.. Bereits die Tatsache, dass es je zwei unterschiedliche Adapter für A-Bajonett-Objektive für die APS-C-Kameras und für die Vollformat-Kameras gibt (LA-EA1-4), sollte jedem logisch denkenden Menschen verdeutlichen, dass es da Unterschiede im Bajonett geben muss.. Ferner muss es auch einen Unterschied in der Schnittstelle zwischen der Modelreiche A7 Mark I und der Mark II geben, da die Mark II-Modelle den 5-Achsen-Bildstabilisator besitzen, welcher natürlich mit den Objektiven kommunizieren muss, da sich sonst die Bildstabilisatoren im Objektiv mit denen in der Kamera gegenseitig stören würden.. Solange die Kamera-Hersteller nicht schriftlich und somit einklagbar versichern, dass die mit ihrem #-Bajonett beworbenen Objektive und Kameras absolut identische Schnittstellen besitzen, ist dies nicht der Fall.

Like a robotic cameraman, the mount automatically follows a device worn by the rider or the horse’s motion to create a steady video where the horse and rider are always in frame.. It also includes live lessons through tv.movensee.com so your instructor can give you feedback in real time through a headset as you ride.. Verdict The Pivo is a great affordable motion tracking camera mount that can be used with smartphones.. The best auto-follow camera mount for horseback riding is the Pixio ..
