Guide – Adapting old lenses to modern cameras

This is a quick guide to adapting old, good and low priced lenses to your modern camera.
I have received many questions after my various videos with and/or about old glass, so this is to try and answer some of them.

The short story i that its not that difficult.
You can adapt pretty much any lens to m4/3 like Panasonic, Olympus and BMPCC.

  • Almost any lens to Sony E-mount.
  • Many lenses to Canon EF
  • And basically nothing to Nikon.

The adapters are cheap to buy on eBay. Just search from the mount you have to the mount you need.
If you don’t know the name of the mount on your lens, ask on a forum or just google.
