Hollywood, CA and Dallas, TX – Redrock Micro, the recognized leader in affordable professional-grade cinema accessories, announced today the release of the new Redrock Micro LiveLens MFT.

Small Lens Adapter with Big Capabilities
Redrock Micro’s LiveLens MFT provides the required power and electronics to control Canon EF lenses when attached to a micro four-thirds camera body. With the LiveLens MFT’s control touchpad, the EF lens’ aperture can be open and closed in increments as small as 1/3 stop. The LiveLens MFT works with virtually every EF lens available today, including variable aperture zoom lenses, prime lenses, consumer-level lenses, professional L-series lenses and most third party EF-compatible lenses. A marvel of advanced design, the LiveLens MFT is incredibly compact and weighs less than 6oz.
LiveLens MFT uses Canon lens control technology proven for over three years in professional productions. For operators and DPs who have invested in Canon EF lenses and want to extend their investment to MFT cameras like the AF100, LiveLens MFT is an invaluable tool.
