A very quick sample video showing my M42 Chinon 200mm f/3.5 lens on my EOS Canon 600D DSLR using a cheap M42 to EOS adapter bought from ebay

Did you do any color grading or other adjustments? What sort of mount is M42?

Hi sorry, I should have added this information to the post

I am no expert on mounts and adapters etc.. But M42 is a very simple screw mount that simply goes into a thread. The adapter turns that screw into an EOS mount that goes onto the canon DSLRs.

I didnt do much colour correction, I simply added brightness and contrast and colour curves, I dont like messing with colours too much.

This is the seller on ebay I bought the adapter from - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-M42-Lens-Canon-EOS-EF-Mount-Adapter-5D-40D-50...

Just uploaded a test video using the Ensinor 500mm f/8 mirror lens, using the same m42 to EOS adapter
