Old lenses also let you change camera systems, or your mount can get retired and your lenses won’t be bricked. At the extreme case, some mirrorless lenses require firmware updates for every new body, so even if the mount stays around lenses won't stay on that update list forever (for instance Nikon's new E lenses are incompatible with cameras just two generations old).\u003c\/p\u003e\n\t\t\u003cp align=\"right\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"text-decoration: underline; color: #0000ff;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"#top\"\u003eBack to Highlights\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\t\u003chr\u003e\n\t\t\u003ca name=\"bul4\"\u003e\n\t\t\u003ch2\u003eAll-Metal Construction; Secure \u0026amp; Solid Fit\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\t\t\u003c\/a\u003e\n\t\t\u003cp\u003eFotodiox Pro adapters feature all-metal, no plastic construction to create a secure connection between your glass and camera that will not degrade over time, keeping the lens-camera connection secure with every use.

    Helicoid Fine Focus Control for Macro Photography

    The macro function of this adapter provides a focusing helicoid that will increase the lens-to-sensor distance, allowing for closer focusing than normally allowed by the lens itself. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus. This means you can now get macro performance without needing to switch to a specialized lens and you will retain all the normal benefits of your optic when the macro function is not in use. The helicoid movement goes from **mm to **mm, offering a total of **mm movement for lens focusing.

    Versatile, Dependable, Adaptable

    Putting old lenses onto hew, high-performance DSLR or mirrorless cameras seems counter-intuitive so why would anyone want to? The simple answer is that many older lenses can capture images that have that elusive quality known as character. For photographers who want to create unique images that express their personal style, character can be even more important than resolution numbers, corner-to-corner sharpness, and other advantages of the near perfect lenses that are quite common today.

    The imperfections and aberrations of older lenses are the very strengths that set them apart from modern lenses. Additionally, a fully mechanical lens is likely repairable longer and less expensively than modern focus-by-wire lenses. Old lenses also let you change camera systems, or your mount can get retired and your lenses won’t be bricked. At the extreme case, some mirrorless lenses require firmware updates for every new body, so even if the mount stays around lenses won't stay on that update list forever (for instance Nikon's new E lenses are incompatible with cameras just two generations old).

  • • Macro Helicoids work best with short to medium focal lengths, they are less effective with telephoto lenses
  • • Extra magnification also magnifies camera shake as well as the subject, tripod use is recommended
  • • Be sure to use the smallest aperture (largest number) on your lens to give you adequate depth-of-field for better quality images
  • • Different lens lengths will require a different distance to be used from the subject, if the subject is not in focus move the camera closer or further from the subject until the subject comes into focus
  • • The effectiveness of Macro Helicoids decreases as focal length increases. You will need to be careful when working with extreme wide-angle lenses as the focusing distance required may be closer to the lens than physically possible (ie you'd hit the front lens element before you achieve focus).
  • • This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (autofocus, AE metering, image stabilization, etc.) will be disrupted.
  • • Some cameras need to be set a certain way to work with our adapters or you may get a message such as 'Error Lens Not Attached - Check lens'. Please check the support articles on the Fotodiox Knowledge Base for possible solutions on a variety of camera brands.
  • 'Focus-By-Wire' lenses (such as Canon's STM or Nikons AF-P) requires power to engage the manual focus rings on the lens, since manual lens mount adapters do not power the lens, those lenses will not be able to focus.
  • • Set your exposure manually or meter using your camera's Aperture Priority (stop-down) mode.
  • • If your lens does not have a manual aperture control ring, the lens aperture will revert to its default position, which depending on the lens is either stopped down to its largest f-stop or opened up to its smallest f-stop.
  • • To determine what the new 'Crop Factor' or 'Equivalent Focal Length' of the lens when used on your camera will be, please check the Fotodiox Knowledge Base article.
  • All pictures are for illustration purposes only. Actual product may vary slightly due to ongoing improvements in design.
