manual aperture on canon fd adapter/work around doesnt work


Recommended Posts


i cant get the manual aperture to work. I followed the steps in a guide, where i had to push in the pins and and move the inside of the lens clock wise. That all worked fine. Now i can change the aperture on the lens. But i cant mount it to my camera anymore.

I can just do that, once i move the inside of the lens counter-clockwise again. Then i can change the aperture though.

Any help highly appreciated

ok, apparently it is the ciecio adapter. depending on the angle i put the lens on it, sometimes manual aperture works, sometimes not. Maybe the stopper is too short or something...

ok, its a bit tricky, but now i found the perfect angle to put the lens on the adapter and now it almost always works...
