Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Photography blog No.164

This week's theme shall be "Capshunz", delight us with your wit. We have "Fotoz As Usual", as usual, and "Ask the Expert" about anything you like, composition, technical things and so on.

Please try to keep to 600 pixels width and 100kb to 150kb max in file size and take a look at Wednesday Photography Blog No.2 for the technical bits on how to post.

Someone's new technology automatically limits width of photos shown to 600 pixels. But it allows you to click and hold on the photos to see the larger version if the file is greater than 600 pixels in width.

Please do not click on post a comment but reply under one of the headers instead.

I have a 35mm Cannon Rebel EOS with an 18mm-80mm zoom lens. Can the lens be used with any available digital camera? How would I find this out?

Lazy in Arkansas. :-)

There are two physical mounts - Canon and Nikon - but there are different electronics for various sub-types that define whether or not basic features like autofocus work properly.

Generally a recent Canon lens will work on any Canon body, and ditto for Nikon. But older lenses and bodies may have incompatibilities. E.g. I have a couple of pro-quality Nikon lenses that work on mid-priced Nikon bodies, but not on the budget SLRs.

There's also a difference between lenses designed for a full-frame professional CCD and the smaller CCD formats used in hobby cameras, although you won't need to worry about that unless you get a full-frame body.

So, is the full frame CCD the same size as a 35mm frame? That would seem to be the requirement if I am to use my old lenses with a new Cannon body. That would certainly save me some money, and, if true, would even allow me to use a very ancient 70-210mm lens and the doubler that goes with if my body allows me to set exposure manually. But what do I use that is comparable to the ASA setting?

We have the same situation.

What I've found out is you'll need to take the lenses, truck on down to the camera shop, and start trying them out until you get a combination you like.  Unless you want to mess with adapters - I don't - restrict yourself to the Canon line.

Yes.

It would even work on the lower budget non-full-frame Canon cameras. The mount is normally compatible, and the incompatibility is that a lens for a smaller CCD will not bring light to the whole full frame, whereas a lens that has a circle of light large enough for a full frame will have no problem with the smaller captor. The only thing to whatch out for is that you are cropping the image, only capturing about two-thirds of the full frame - so that your 18-80 becomes something like 25-120mm. As for the "ancient" lens, you need to check if it is an EF mount, since that is the current standard. If it is of the older FD mount, apparently the adaptaters are second hand and expensive...
