In this video I’m using the Fotodiox Pro Lens Adpater with built in Aperture Iris, and the Canon EF 135mm f/2 L Lens.
There are several setting that will need to configure in the Sony Nex-7 Menu to make shooting with a lens adapter as easy as possible. First we will need to enable the “shoot without lens” option as the Nex-7 thinks there is no lens attached when using an adapter with no electronics like the Fotodiox pro. We will then move on to the focus peaking and manual focus assist settings to make sure we have all the tools the Nex-7 provides us with at our finger tips 😉
