        Comments about General Brand C-Mount Adapter for Canon FD Lens:

        I use this to adapt my 28-80mm Zoom and 500mm Canon FD lenses to a Hitachi VC370 NTSC video camera mounted to a 10" Meade LX200. C-mount side, screws on easily and the FD side has a bright white dot to indicate proper alignment of the lens. Simply attach and detach as you normally would your SLR lens.The drawbacks are that the unit is made of plastic, and seems like it could easily be overtightened (and subsequently stripped) when attaching a lens. It also does tend to unscrew slightly when removing a lens. Otherwise, the cost of this little adapter will save me hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars in replacement lenses for this little video camera.

            Comments about General Brand C-Mount Adapter for Canon FD Lens:

            I bought two of these C-Mount adapters to use for a 3D SMD soldering system. I am using two Panasonic CCD video cameras that require a C-Mount lens. These adapters are to Canon FD, I am using two Canon macro 50mm f1:3.5 lens. The output of the cameras feed into a 3D mixer box which creates a 3D video HDMI signal that is sent to a 3D monitor. With this system I can solder the smallest SMD parts by hand without problem. The adapters were a required part of the system, and they work great. It is a solid secure lens to camera adapter. An the anodized aluminum looks great with the black lens and camera colors.

              Comments about General Brand C-Mount Adapter for Canon FD Lens:

              This adapter allows to use old SRL camera lenses in CCTV cameras, avoiding to buy expensive CCTV zoom lenses.

              I use a 80-200 mm Canon FD lens with perfect results.

                  The only negative is that there is no way to manipulate the attached lens's aperture lever. While using this adapter, the lens's aperture is fully open.

                  Comments about General Brand C-Mount Adapter for Canon FD Lens:

                  CCTV zoom lenses are expensive ($199.00 & up). This simple C-mount adapter fits older 35mm Canon SLR lens to a 1/3" C or CS-mount digital CCTV camera, saving money by fitting recycled lens barrels from 35mm cameras for the digital age. See my [...] listings at StationNT5Bmedia.
