    Hey folks,
    can I use the old BMPCC Speedbooster (0.58x) on the new Pocket 4K without damaging the mount nor the sensor?
    I'm aware that lenses attached via this old adapter won't fully cover the image circle. I'm just afraiad to cause any physical damage to the camera.
    Has anyone of you tried it already?

    There is always a risk of using speedboosters not meant for the camera. Additionally I have had people tell me the image vignettes so hard its not even worth it.

    I've done it without any problem on the sensor or the mount. Il strongly vignettes. But if you shoot with a 4/3 frame, it is usable, and gives you a very nice image. And pairing with a tokina 11-16, you have almost a wide angle in windowed HD !

    Yes, this’s is really only useful in the HD Window mode, but the wider the lens focal length, the smaller the projected image circle, and the more likely you will have dark corners.
    Cheers

    Same issue, it is not going to cover the entire sensor, but it will cover more than the BMPCC SB. The original BMCC sensor was smaller than MFT, but larger than S16, kind of in between the two.
    Cheers

    This one will cover the Pocket 4K sensor just fine, as long as your lens has a bigger image circle than Super35/APS-C.

    So ideally a lens designed for full frame 135 sensors.

    Using my Tokina 11-16 EF cine lens with MB 0.64x to MFT Speedbooster vignettes from 11-14. But it is usable from 15-16mm.

    So are you saying this is more preferable than the metabones XL 0.64x?

    I'm not sure I understand your question. I was describing the 0.64x Speedbooster, so not sure how I could compare it to itself?
