Lens Adapter for Canon FD to Canon EOS
If you want to extend the capabilities of your Canon EOS single-lens camera, a lens mount adapter could be just what you need. A lens adapter for Canon FD to Canon EOS will allow you to fit a variety of FD lenses onto your camera, allowing you to experiment with different photography techniques and visual effects.
Achieve a greater level of optical zoom, try your hand at macro photography or give creative effects such as fisheye photos a whirl. You can even use camera lens filters on top of the FD lens, giving you a further set of visual possibilities and corrective tools.
Adapting your camera
Canon FD lens adapters work by mounting onto your EOS camera so that Canon interchangeable lenses can then be fitted onto your adapter. Don't forget to check that your model of EOS camera is compatible with the lens adapter.
The method for effective use of your adapter will depend on the model. Most adapters will need you to select manual (M) mode on your camera before use. This means lens adapters can only be used without automatic functions such as autofocus. Some adapters can achieve auto-exposure if you select aperture priority (AV) mode on your digital camera .
Exciting visual effects
Attaching FD lenses to your EOS camera will open up a whole new world of photography possibilities. Not only can you play around with different lenses - from wide angle to telephoto - but you can also use lens filters on top of that to achieve new effects.
Canon have produced over 100 different FD lenses over the years so you have plenty of choice. Each gives a different effect, whether it is increasing your camera's focal length in your distance shots or allowing lifesize reproduction in your close up shots. Most adapters will support focus infinity thanks to their multi-coated glass.
