Fotodiox has a EF to L mount adapter, which allows photographers and videographers to use Canon EF/EF-S lenses on L-mount cameras. Canon EF and EF-S lenses were originally designed for DSLRs. And, since most creatives are now switching to mirrorless, the need for lens adapters is evident.
Fotodiox has been making lens adapters and other camera accessories for some time now. And, these adapters have been quite popular with budget filmmakers and photographers.
Supports AF and Image Stabilization
The new Fotodiox EF to L mount Adapter comes with what Fotodiox calls “FUSION” technology. Because of it, the adapter has full electronic support including Autofocus and Image Stabilization (IS). As such, both are probably the most important functions for both video and stills users.
This lens adapter supports full electronic communication between the camera and adapted lens. However, as with any smart adapter, certain features may or may not work with all lenses. Therefore, some testing may be required to ensure compatibility with certain lenses.
However, for stills popular features such as lens aperture data, and EXIF data are fully transmitted to the camera. Because of this, your post-production process becomes a lot easier.
Such adapters are very handy when it comes to tilt/shift or other specialty lenses not available or hugely expensive for the native camera mount. Lots of photographers will own Canon EF lenses, and there is always a need to adapt them to other camera mounts.
Fotodiox’s Fusion Pro line of lens adapters features a Micro USB port for firmware updates providing a future proof solution. And, not to mention it adds the ability to fix bugs and provide extended functionality in the future.
All-Metal, Solid Construction
And as all of the company’s Pro line of adapters, the FotodioX EF to L adapter features an all-metal, no plastic construction. Because of this, the adapter ensures a snug fit between the camera and lens without wobble.
Additionally, Fotodiox engineers have implemented chrome plated brass mounts for enhanced durability and reliability.
And, as with all Fotodiox adapters and accessories, this adapter is covered by their 2 year warranty.
