Fotodiox lens adaptors

Procedure with a manual lens

Set the mode dial on your camera to Av (aperture priority) mode.

Set up dioptric correction.

Set your lens to “Manual” (M) with its manual/auto switch.

Set your lens to its widest aperture

Focus on a well-lit subject. 

Since you often won’t have any aids on your mirror, like a microprism ring, to help you focus accurately, this can be awkward. It sometimes helps to keep turning the ring until you are in focus, turn it a little further till you’re out of focus, then very slowly turn it back. Once you’re in focus, stop your aperture down by a couple of stops; this will give you a greater depth of field to compensate for the inevitable focusing error, however small.
