Be sure to post back about that! I've heard that older glass requires an additional adapter to use even on the newer Nikon dSLR's (any) and haven't tried it yet. Haven't found too much info to go on, so I think I'll give a cheap eBay adapter a try just to see...

David, I just ordered a couple last night, should have them by Friday. You mentioned using the old pre-AI Nikkors on new Nikons. That's trickier than using them on a Canon. There are, however, a few people who will modify the lenses for a reasonable price. Fortunately to use them on a Canon all you have to do is buy an adapter.

Yes Rob I use the Kawa adapter for my Nikkor AI lenses. A quick tip if you get this adapter, the tiny screws on the Kawa adapter were loose, I didn't realize this until one fell out, luckily I saw it. All the screws were loose, so just make sure when you get one that you check the screws are tight.

I use the KAWA brand from eBay as well. I've been able to successfully mount a Nikkor 80-200mm f2.8 ED with it. The only issue is a very slight amount of torque play, which is less than 1mm or so. Even so, the mount is tight and flush against the EOS body. I'm sure there are better adapters for telephoto lenses such as this, but I would certainly recommend it for smaller primes.

Here's a silly question...got the adapter, put the lens on, what setting do I need to use on the T2i to access the basic controls (iris/aperture) I know the lens info and auto stuff isn't going to be there but the camera defaulted to a very extreme setting that I can't seem to change. I have the Cinevate adapter.

I set it to Manual. Adjust the iris using the ring on the lens, Set the shutter to 1/50 or so, then adjust the ISO until you get a proper exposure.

Some like using Av mode which automatically changes the shutter to compensate for exposures. This is fine for video "snapshots", but you'll find that a changing shutter speed will be very noticeable from shot to shot.

These adapters for serious video work need lenses with aperture rings, the body won't speak to your lens through these cheaper adapters. So it's full manual control, aperture, focusing, shutter speeds and iso.

I know that but how do you set the camera up to deal with a full manual lens?

Does anyone know the difference between these lens mounts?

Mount adapter for Nikon F AIS Ai Canon EF EOS New USA - eBay (item 290411915579 end time Apr-09-10 01:58:29 PDT)

and this one:

Nikon Lens to Canon EOS Adapter 300D 350D 400D 20D 30D - eBay (item 380208604991 end time Mar-22-10 02:04:17 PDT)

There's a 2 dollar price difference, but I don't really get the difference between the two.

You put the adapter on the lens first, attach to the camera and the only odd thing is you get a message on the lcd telling you to attach a lens to the camera and press the video start button. Go ahead and press the button, the mirror flips up and the lcd then shows the image. Nothing else to set up, just select the shutter speed focus and adjust the aperture until the indicator shows the exposure where you want it for the scene.

Try and focus at full aperture, if you don't you are focusing with a stopped down lens, so the depth of field that the aperture is creating can be inaccurate for true focus, also the lcd becomes darker as you stop down.

When I started photography way back all my slr and lenses were not automatic aperture, so you had to focus at full aperture and then manually stop down the lens. Were just going back in time with this technique for HD-DSLR and manual lenses.
