Micro Four Thirds Adapters: Canon FD

Micro four thirds is a lens technology designed by Panasonic and Olympus. It was designed to make it possible to include interchangeable lenses on compact camera bodies. There are quite a few cameras which use the Micro four thirds lenses, but they can be very expensive to buy. A great way to save some money is to use lens adaptors to connect different lenses to your camera, including the Canon FD mount lenses.

Using the Adaptors

When using these adaptors, you will find that some of the lenses that you can install on the adaptor are much bigger than the camera itself. This will put a lot of strain on the lens mount, which is why it's essential that you support any big lenses that you use while taking photos.


These lens adaptors are very easy to use because they can be mounted onto the micro four thirds camera and left in position. This makes it easy to attach different lenses and unscrew them without needing to detach the adaptor at all.

Using These Lenses

In order to use these lenses on your camera, you will need to turn on the "Shoot W/O lens" option in the custom menu on your camera. If you fail to do this, then the screen will remain dark. You should also follow the instructions with the adaptor to show how the lens can be mounted on the adaptor.
