Need some help, i bought a Fotasy AMNK Nikon Lens to M43 Micro Four Thirds M43 System Camera Adapter for my gh3. Everything mounted up fine but for some reason the footage on my camera was dark, i played with the iso and the image on the camera was still dark .. Can someone explain what step i'm missing

There is this thing called aperture.

 

  • For Nikon lens with aperture control F-stop ring

 

and your adapter won't let you controll it, since you have a G type lens it lacks the aperture dial, so the aperture remains closed and everything dark.

 

You need an adapter with aperture ring. I believe this one should work, ask google before buying:

Can anyone verify if the metabones speed booster can control the 35mm lens aperture with the aperture ring on the GH3 (or any Panasonic body)? http://www.metabones.com/products/details/MB_SPNFG-m43-BM1

 

If a Speed Booster has "G" in the name like "Nikon G to Micro Four Thirds Speed Booster" - it means that it has support for the newer Nikon lenses that lack aperture ring - in addition to supporting the majority of the older Nikon lenses (some rare special lenses that aren't supported).

 

"G" is Nikon's product marking for lenses without aperture ring.
