View Full Version : Old lenses on new Nikon via adapter

07-12-12, 02:18 PM

I am trying to use some old Minolta Rokkor lenses on my new Nikon d3200 with the aid of an adapter.

I just wonder if I can enter manually, as an input to the camera, the aperture I have chosen so that it calculates the shutter speed. I think that it is not possible, but, in case that somebody knows a way, please inform me about it.

My father used to take marvelous pictures with them, but I find it extremely tiring with all these calculations I have to make for a single descent shot... :)

Thank you,

Hi welcome to the forum.
Your dad's old lenses don't have CPU connections, sadly the only way they will work is with the camera set to manual

Thank you, Graham, I just hoped that there is a way... by hacking the software of the camera maybe...

anyway, it is about great lenses though, bearing some glorious past too...
