CW Sonderoptic is demonstrating its latest Leica-branded cine product, the Leica M PL Mount, at NAB Show.

This new camera accessory works with existing Leica M (Typ 240) and Leica M-P (Typ 240) digital rangefinder cameras to allow the use of traditional PL mount cine lenses to create a powerful tool for cinematographers and image enthusiasts on set, on location and in the street.

The mechanical mount attaches directly and non-destructively to the existing Leica M mount. It includes a custom baseplate with an integrated handgrip featuring a matching leatherette surface to provide superior support and comfort when handling heavier PL mount lenses. The optional addition of the Leica EVF-2 Electronic Viewfinder creates an easy-to-use tool with endless creative options.
With the Leica M PL Mount, the Leica M camera becomes a next-generation director’s viewfinder with the ability to capture faithful reference photos and videos in the moment.

Experience cine lenses in a new way by shooting high-resolution production stills and portraits, or truly maximise the camera’s 24MP full frame sensor for VFX plates and specialty shots. The M camera’s ability to shoot 1080p video in a compact package opens up unique “B” or “C” camera options as well. At the end of the day simply remove the M PL Mount, reattach your favourite M lens and enjoy the world of rangefinder photography.
