PL Mount Cine lenses Hire. We offer the widest catalog of PL mount lenses in Europe. PL Lens Mounts are a system developed by the German company Arri. The PL mount was designed and manufactured for use with 16mm and35mm cameras. The acronym PL stands for "Positive Lock" for cine lenses. The Pl mount is the successor to the Bayonet mount, also designed and manufactured by Arri.
The PL Mount has four tips, each with a notch in the center. All of the notches allow you to align the PL mount to a locating pin located approximately 45 degrees clockwise. This allows the lens to be placed in four different positions that are used depending on the camera position and the first assistant - focus puller.
The PL Mount for Cine lenses allows a total blocking of the lens by means of a friction ring that together with the four points and its notches allow the lens to be perfectly fixed to the camera. The PL mount has been a definitive factor in being able to install large zoom lenses on Cinema cameras.
