I quiet often use Canon FD lenses for filming with my BMPCC. It's not brilliant but gets the job done and a M43 to FD adaptor was easy to find and works quiet well.
I was recently going to try and use the FD lenses on my Bolex EBM (super 16) so I ordered an FD lens to Bolex Bayonet adaptor. However, it has no mechanism to affect the aperture control lever inside the lens. Has anyone dealt with one of these before? Is there something obvious I am missing?
I guess my option is to machine something up that holds the manual aperture lever in for me? Thats the only way I can manually set the aperture on the lens.
I'll try and attach some photos to demonstrate my question.
top on is FD to M43 and works well because it has the mechanism to hold the arm in.
bottom is FC to bolex bayonet and it doesn't have the same mechanism.
throw it in the bin?
