Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Today, I like to share with you how to make your film camera lenses compatible with your digital SLR cameras. Now, it's actually a very easy process. All you need is one of these. This right here is a lens adapter. Now, it's going to take a little bit of research on your end to figure out what kind of mount your film lens camera has and what kind of mount your digital SLR has. Now, this in particular one is an M42 to an ELS mount. Now, what that means is, I have this lens which is my film camera lens and it has an M42 mount. With the lens adapter, you go ahead and you screw that on your film camera lens. So, now, it's firmly attached to the lens itself and what this is going to allow you to do is now just mount this right into your digital SLR camera. Now, again, it's going to take a little bit of research on your end to figure out what mount your film camera lens has and what mount your digital SLR has. But, from there, it's a very easy process. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
