What canon digital camera will use my old Canon AE1 fd lenses?

I have an old Canon AE1 camera that uses the old style FD lenses. I have many lenses and am wondering if there is a digital camera that I can purchase that will be able to use these lenses? Also are there adapters that enable these lenses to be used with other cameras? If so, what camera models use these adapters and will work with my old fd lenses lenses?

You can buy an adapter to use FD mount lenses on EOS mount cameras. See this page for more details.

Lens mount fit


None directly. The T90 was the last Canon camera to use the older FD lenses. All newer Canon SLRs, film and digital, use the EF mount. However, by using an adapter such as http://www.rakuten.com/prod/adorama-canon-fd-lens-to-eos-body-adapter-with-correction-glass/216466533.html?listingId=120668308, you can use the old lenses on any Canon digital SLR.

I have a canon Zoom FD 70-210mm 1:4 lens off a SLR camera. Will it work with digital cameras?


No Canon FD lenses cannot be used on Canon EOS system cameras (all autofocus Canons except for the ancient and obsolete Canon T-series 35mm SLR's from the 1980's use the EOS mount).

There are very few cameras which can take them (35mm or digital) without some kind of expensive mounting converter which would include corrective optics.

If in good condition though it's a great lens and can be used on plenty of old Canon classic 35mm SLR models such as the AE1, AT-1 , AV-1 and Canon T-series, all of which are cheap//free and readily available.

What is the difference between ae1 and eos 50 i have ae1 lens and they they do not fit the eos 50 as i was led to believe paul.


Whoever led you to believe that is wrong. The AE-1 uses the Canon FD mount, while the newer EOS cameras use the EF mount.

Canon introduced the EOS (Electro-Optical System) in 1987. The bayonet-style EF lens mount is at the heart of the EOS camera system. Breaking compatibility with the earlier breech-lock FD mount, it was designed with no mechanical linkages between moving parts in the lens and in the camera. The aperture and focus are controlled via electrical contacts, with motors in the lens itself.

I have a canon fd 28mm 1 : 2.8 lens and I am trying to find a camera that works with it


The FD lenses were mainly for film cameras. I used this lens on a Canon AE1-P. If you have a modern digital EOS with an EF mount you can buy an adapter (FD to EF) so the FD lens can be used on the EOS

Ol filme camera lenes fit mycanon ef-s digital eos 1000D


Hello,

are your old film lenses FD or EF mounts ?
(Is the old film camera a Canon ?)

EF will fit EFS fine. My expeariance is with the EOS 3000 EF film camera (2002 -etc) and these work fine.

If you have Canon FD, there are some lens converters out there however I have not seen any yet which electrically connect and there is no AF. All Manual focus.

I have used Olympus OM mount adaptors with manual focus to mount older/different mount lenses with some success (As an example).

Best idea is to search ebay for your mount converters.

Canon on nikon


The Canon lenses are FD mount which means that you will need to get an adaptor to convert the FD mount to fit the F mount on the Nikon. An example of the mount can be seen here:

As for the speedlights the hotshoe mount will accept them on your Nikon, put them on with fresh batteries and try them out.

I have an cannon SLR AE1 that uses film. I would like to know if there is a a digatol SLR body that I can put my lineses on.


No, Canon EOS models use a different type connection for its lenses (EF series) and thus will now work with the "FD" lenses from the AE-1

Canon digital camera


Hey jpmodell,
Whether or not you can use your old lenses on a new DSLR body depends on how old your lenses are and what model lenses they are. Modern Canon DSLR cameras use what is called the EF mount which was introduced by Canon in 1987. Canon lenses prior to 1987 have what is called the FD mount which will not directly mount onto new digital cameras. Some companies do make an adapter to allow the user to mount an FD lens onto an EF mount camera but it would provide very limited functionality. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
