What's Old is New Again: Vintage Glass and Lens Adapters


Do you have old photo lenses lying around, gathering dust? If so, let B&H’s Doug Guerra show you how to breathe new life into your picture making with the addition of a lens adapter. In this short YouTube video, Guerra introduces a variety of lens accessories, each of which opens up new possibilities for your work. You’ll learn about mechanical adapters for adding legacy lenses to a modern camera body, smart adapters that enable you to use modern glass on a different system while benefitting from automatic controls, and focal reducers that allow you to increase field of view and speed. Whether you're shooting stills or video, pairing vintage glass or modern optics with a compatible lens adapter can stimulate experimentation and offer unique characteristics to make your images stand out from the rest. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com.
