The DSMC Al Leica-M Mount allows you to mount a select group of Leica-M lenses onto a DSMC® or DSMC2® BRAIN for shooting motion or still images. This lens mount is machined from aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel—and is compatible with most Leica-M series lenses with focal lengths of 50mm or greater.
The DSMC Al Leica-M Mount features captive mounting screws, so you’re never searching for hardware.
IMPORTANT: Most M series lenses have rear elements that project beyond the rearmost face of the lens’ bayonet lugs of the lens mount. Attempting to mount a lens without modifications to allow for clearance could result in damage to the lens, mount, or BRAIN®.
IMPORTANT: If you are using an EPIC MYSTERIUM-X® or SCARLET MYSTERIUM-X camera, you may need to install a new OLPF frame (included with the DSMC AL Leica-M Mount). Leica-M lenses are incompatible with older models of the OLPF frame originally installed in the EPIC MYSTERIUM-X and SCARLET MYSTERIUM-X. For more information, refer to the OLPF Frame Installation Instructions.
- A new OLPF frame (included) is required to use the Leica-M mount
- Replacement OLPF frame is compatible with all DSMC lens mounts
- OLPF upgrade may be performed by customer or RED®, free of charge
Due to mechanical limitations, M series lenses with rear elements that project beyond the rearmost face of the lens’ bayonet lugs are not compatible with this lens mount. Attempting to mount a lens with projecting rear elements could result in damage to the lens, mount, or brain.
