If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses,the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on thefilm/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinctadvantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and yousave the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range ofadapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters.Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: largeformat to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3)provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image fieldhelps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration byusing the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens imagecircle.
This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standardprecision. It's all metal design and polished surface is designedto guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences. Itallows Canon EOS Mount Lenses to fit onto C-Mount (1" screwmount) Cine & CCTV cameras along with some microscopephototubes.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm,auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctlywhile using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode"will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have theability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body.
