Panasonic AF101 with lens adapters
on Jul 9, 2013 at 11:12:34 am

Hi,
I have recently bought the Panasonic AF101 and was very excited to try my old stills photo lenses with it. I bought the kipon "FD to mft" and the "EOS to mft" and tried the adapters with an old canon 50mm FD mount lens and a Canon 28-135 EF mount lens.
I have no problems fitting the adapters and the lenses, but when I switch on the camera, there is only black.
I have tried different settings and adjusted the iris back and forth. Is there a specific setting the camera must be on or why is this not working?

Best,
Tone

You must disable the lens check. Look at the Menu: OTHER FUNCTIONS-LENS CHECK- set to OFF.

You have to deactivate the Lens Check in the Menu. Look at the Menu: OTHER FUNCTIONS-LENS CHECK set il to OFF. Hope it can help.
