    I have a Panasonic automatic iris-control lens (c-mount) - Model SF-90AP. I do not know how to use this lens - I have no documentation. Does anyone have documentation on this lens or knows how to use it?

    Thanks in advance.

    C-Mount lenses are used on 16mm movie cameras having a compatible mount.
    There are many such cameras like the Bolex R-16 and many others. Some
    TV/Video cameras also use C-mount lenses.

    Adapters also exist to mount C-mount lenses on various still cameras.

    Thanks for the reply. I have cameras to use c-mount lenses. However, this Panasonic automatic iris lens I have has 3 wires coming out of it, which I am guessing i used to control the iris. However, I do not know how to configure the iris using these 3 wires, so I am looking for the spec sheet on this lens and/or its controller.
