Cambo Introduces Electronic Adapter for Canon EF Lenses on Fujifilm GFX

Thanks to reader Hans B for pointing this out.

Cambo CA-GFX lens adapter for Canon EF to Fujifilm GFX

Cambo has introduce the CA-GFX lens adapter, for adapting Canon EF lenses to the Fujifilm GFX. It can be used standalone; no Cambo Mini View Camera needed.

The CA-GFX will be the third Canon lens adapter that Cambo have manufactured and marketed for camera movement. Having successfully adapted Canon lenses to the Cambo ACTUS (ACB-CA) and more recently the WIDE series camera (WRES-CA.) It was a natural transition to manufacture the adapter as it gives many photographers the option of using their existing lenses with the latest mirrorless, large sensor, Fujifilm GFX50s (CA-GFX.)

The CA-GFX adapter fits directly to the bayonet of the GFX camera body and the lens aperture is controlled electronically when dialing in the required f-stop. As there is no direct connection between lens and body, there is no data received; aperture, auto-focus or EXIF, from the lens.

Why make this lens adapter?

The Fujifilm GFX50s sensor measures 33x44mm and Canon lenses such as the Canon 17mm TS-E and Canon 24mm TS-E have very large image circles, they will cover the sensor size and will enable the photographer to apply movement.

I applaud this development, but I caution readers to assume nothing about actual lens performance on the Fujifilm GFX when using adapted lenses; it is a matter of “try it and see if the quality holds up”.

That said, presumably much of the time the use of a shift lens involves f/11 or so, which can minimize issues of how a lens interacts with a non-native sensor (sensor meaning the sensor and its micro lenses, ray angle, and sensor cover glass thickness and refraction).
