The Vizelex Light Cannon Soft Focus Adapter is a great optionfor glamour shots. The adapter gives a similar effect as a softfocus lens, working well with wide-angle lenses to allow inadditional light. This advanced lens mount adapter that not onlyattaches a Nikon Lens (including G & D type) to a Sony NEXE-Mount camera body, but has added light focusing optics whichmakes the lens wider by a 0.72x factor and increases the maximumaperture of the lens by 1 stop. This effectively allows use of your35mm lenses on a crop sensor camera and not lose the angle of viewnormally associated with lens mount adapters (ie, 50mm lens staysroughly a 50mm lens equivalent).
The blue dial on the adapter is an aperture adjustment dialwhich allows the iris to be adjusted on even the Nikon G & Dlenses; on older Nikon lenses with a aperture dial on the lens, theblue dial on the adapter can act as a depth of field preview leverallowing you to switch back and forth between wide open and stoppeddown to a certain f-stop.
As with all Fotodiox Pro series adapters, these adapters havebeen specially crafted to endure professional use. The leaf springdesign in the adapter holds the lens tight to the camera bodyensuring there is no play between the camera and the lens. The allmetal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee a smoothmounting and long lasting experience. With unique styling, the lensmount adapter maintains a professional appearance. Although thelens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, orany other functions will not operate correctly while using thisadapter. Because of this "stop-down mode" will need to beused when metering since the lens does not have the ability to haveits aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot withmanual mode or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing isguaranteed.
