Glass FD-EF adapters versus normal

\015 I've acquired a number of Canon FD lenses from a passed grandparent, and I would like to know about adapting them to fit my EOS Rebel body. What is the upside of getting a FD-EF adapter with glass versus one without? How does it change the quality?\015

Answers :

I believe that there is an official adapter, with a glass element, and it works decently. It has a telephoto (objects appear closer) effect of about 1.3x, so depending on your sensor size this could be increased more-so -good for telephoto, not so good for ultra wide-angle lenses.

There are cheap adapters such as I have but they do not focus to infinity, or at least not very sharply -and if they contain glass, you want it to be high-quality because it is most sensitive to distortion internally. You can experiment with additional screw-on glass lenses on the end to further alter the abilities. With a cheap adapter you also can not trust the lens-to-body connection is very strong so you must be careful!!

I have a Rokkor MC mount 50mm F1.4 lens and I would like to use it on my Sony Alfa 100 camera. I think I need an MC/Md mount adapter to a Sony camera. Am I right. Some adds say the adapter fits Minolta cameras...does that include the Alfa? Also I see some adapters have glass and some don't. I think I should get one with out glass----right?


This website says the MC/Md adapter will fit the Sony Alpha A100 camera, so I think it's the right one for you. Here's the site:\015\012http:/ ... Digital Cameras

Took the pentax w90 into a pool for the first time. normal use, after 10 minutes took it out and the buttons didnt want to function. now the green power light always remains on and the only thing the camera will do when i turn it on is automatically take a picture and freeze. noticed condensation on the inside of the glass of the view screen.

At one point, it produced several normal images, then returned to the problem. The playback mode produces normal images from sored normal images. I have never dropped the camera or exposed it to high heat or cold. I have 3 batteries and none produce any variance in the bad image. I've tied all settings and reset. Up until the

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking.

Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
