Phoenix Lens Adaptor

I have a Canon T4i (650D) and for Christmas my sister gave me her old Phoenix (Bower?) MZ-5000 650-1300mm lens. It has an adaptor on it for Nikon cameras that is simply attached to the barrel vie 3 small screws. Is there an adaptor or convertor that would allow it to fit my canon? Thanks in advance !

There are lots of adopters you can buy, to work with lenses from other brands. Bower has lots of adopters, but the easy one is just a Nikon to Canon adopter. The lens is manual focus, so you can't win anything by searching for an expensive solution.

SOURCE: lens adaptor

The good news is that it is possible to get the camera to operate with the lens & adapter :-)

The bad news is that you'll only be able to use it in manual mode :-(

To get the camera(s) to actually fire, you will need to change some settings.

For the Maxxum 7:

Go to Custom settings (No.16) and change to 'Lock Off'.

For Maxxum 7D

Go to the settings menu (purple cog icon) and then to sub-menu 3. Change Shutter lock to Off.


With the camera set to Manual mode, you can still use the built-in meter. Half-press the shutter button and you will see a metering scale appear in the viewfinder. This will indicate whether the shutter/aperture setting you've selected will over/under-expose the image. Adjust your settings until the indicator bar is over the zero.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

PS. Even if you could somehow modify the adapter, the lens won't have the necessary electrical and mechanical coupling for the cameras to control it in an automatic mode.

SOURCE: Try and fit Canon EFS Lens to EOS 5D Body

As far as I know, you should use L series Lens to fit Full Frame Canon Camera (5D & 1D).

That would be no adapter, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

When I take a picture it shown ?


The shutter release button is the round button on the front top right of the camera as you hold it up.

The 650D is called the T4i in some parts of the world. You may download the T4i manual and more from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/eos_slr_camera_systems/eos_digital_slr_cameras/eos_rebel_t4i#BrochuresAndManuals

Canon EOS Rebel T4i 650d flash pops up but does not work.. Camera is 2 months old any suggestions please


I suggest you return the camera back to the shop and get the camera repaired or replaced as it would be still under warranty.
If you try to fix it yourself you may void your warranty.

How to mount 67mm thread lens to t4i body only canon


One side of the reverse adapter has a 67mm thread, the other side has a lens mount. Mount it to the camera body as if it were a lens. Bear in mind that it's intended to screw onto the front of a lens and then mounted onto a camera to put the lens onto the camera in a "backward" position.

Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma Aspherical lens fitted to my Pentax MZ-50 film camera on my Canon EOS 1000d DSLR. Would it work?


You may be able to find an adaptor, but I doubt it and you would lose many functions in any case. It could end up that the lens will not auto focus or that it would not meter properly. These adaptors are made so that specialty lenses (such as fisheye or shift lenses) can be mounted on cameras when needed. Your 28-200 would probably be cheaper to by in an EOS mount.

Can you help me purchase a tele converter lens for a MZ-60 camera


You need to track down a 2x teleconverter that has a Pentax A mount for it to work correctly on the moun t of your camera.

I believe Adorama has one here:

Check with them first to ensure compatibility
