16:9 Widescreen Converter - Bayonet Mount

Your new Century lens features our exclusive quick-mount bayonet system. Follow these instructions for proper and secure mounting on your camera.

1. Remove the rear lens cap. Rotate the front and rear halves of the attachment until the yellow dots are aligned with each other.

2. Grasp the attachment by the front of the lens such that the pair of yellow dots are at the 12:00 (vertical) position.

3. Position the converter on the front of the camera lens such that the yellow dots are at approximately 12:00 (right below the microphone). Push on to insure that the converter is firmly seated.

4a. While continuing to grasp the attachment by the front knurled ring of the lens, rotate the attachment clockwise. After 45º of rotation, the locking mechanism will first encounter a mechanical stop such that the rear section of the lens will be unable to rotate any further. At that point, continue to rotate the front half alone, and notice that the yellow dots will separate. Continue to rotate until the unit is firmly locked in place.

If the unit fails to lock, please replace step 4A with the following 4B:

4b. Grasp the attachment by the engraved rear collar and rotate the rear collar clockwise until it encounters the mechanical stop, such that the rear section of the lens will be unable to rotate any further. Now grasp the attachment by the front of the lens, position the converter on the front of the camera lens, rotate the attachment clockwise (the yellow dots will separate), continue to rotate until the unit is firmly locked in place.

5. There is no second mechanical stop. Rotation is only necessary up to the point that the attachment seems secure. The front lens cap can now simply be removed.

Adjusting the Anamorphic:

6. Loosen the lock knob screw counter clockwise and rotate the "Rotation Ring" (front optic) clockwise until the image and optic is completely vertical (squeezed up & down). Tighten the lock knob screw. Once properly adjusted, you should not need to readjust the lens again on your camera.

7. The attachment can be removed by reversing the process. When the yellow dots have once more been aligned at the 11:00 position rotate to the 12:00 position. The lens can now be removed from the camera with a pulling action.

8. When not in use or removed, reinstall the lens caps in order to protect the lens.
