The PLx2 optical extender doubles the focal length of 35 mm
PL mount lenses. While most extenders can only physically fit on
a limited range of lenses, the design of the PLx2 allows it
to work with a wider array of PL mount lenses than any
The PLx2 features high-index, low-dispersion glass to ensure the
highest possibility resolution and contrast with minimal optical
degradation. In magnifying the image twofold,
the transmitted light is spread over a larger area, decreasing
the brightness by two f-stops. To create an optical design that
is optimized for modern lenses and digital cameras,
the maximum input T-Stop is 1.9.
The PLx2 is designed to mount to any digital cinema camera
with a native PL mount. It will also clear the spinning mirror on
any ARRI or Aaton 35 mm camera.
