Going for a canon user manual vibe on this one. I don't use my F-1 often, but i do enjoy it when i do.

I think you can strip out the FD mount and put either a reverse adaptor that has an EF mount or cut out the EOS camera cap and stuck/glue it to the FD lens. You will have to build a connection for the aperture ring, usually a glued bent metal strip will allow the ring to move the aperture blades.

some instructions here

I already have the adapter for the "less than infinity" EOS mount and also the reversing rings. It's truly a shame that an exceptional lens cannot be adapted to the EOS mount.

Such a great camera and fondly remembered. I had 2 versions of this...the SC which I believe your's is and the SCX which added geared movements. Sold only when I went digital, there's something very special about working in this large a format.

Thanks for posting this.:D

My dad's still shooting with the one he bought at about the same time. I learned photography on that camera, and hope to inherit it someday. Might have to figure out how to retrofit a digital sensor into it, though - I'm not really set up to handle film anymore.

Bought this baby in 1975, used it for 25 years. Then I went digital. I couldn't count how many rolls of Kodachrome went through it. I never thought it would become an "Old Camera". I still use the FD 50mm f1.4 as a macro on my digitals. Fabulous lens.

Wirgin Edixa, with an Isconar 43mm/f2.8 lens. It has two viewfinders, a split one in two halfs for the focusing with range finding and a simple one for composing the picture.

FTb Was my first camera (Mine had FL and not FD lens as shown with same impressive F1.4) and I love it to the end. Nothing like it. Metal. Smell of real leather from case that was very unique.

BTW the concept you have was once produced. That is on early digital years, Kodak made a sensor and module that would seat on Nikon F4 and film camera would function digital. As you can think of, very expensive and cumbersome and never got that popular.
I can fully understand your feeling for the Dad's camera and that might be a good motivation to continue with film too. It is not really difficult as long as you can keep the film in right, and rest comes easy. Main issue is to find the variety of negative or slides that you want and then place to get them actually developed. Anyway FTb is like a tank and will probably last a lot longer than actually what we shall to see more generations of us beyond our own ability, as it will probably remaining fully functional!

1955 Kodak Pony 135 camera, all manual, produced very nice pictures.
I bought this Kodak Pony 135 very cheap, for 2 euros. It is a 50s camera made of brown bakelite and aluminum. The 44mm Kodak anaston lens produces excellent pictures, very sharp and pleasing to the eye.

I put two 1.4V hearing aids batteries and brought the Canonet 28 to life.

Good to know. You always seem to come up with some COOL old cameras, and the resulting photos from this one came out quite nice. :)

Sinar P (with Canon 5D2). I've has this camera for quite a while, and a Sinar F for that matter as almost everything is interchangeable between them. Since digital the Sinar has been more of an adapter than a camera in that I've used it to shoot with lenses that I couldn't easily adapt to the Canon, such as large format, process or certain enlarging lenses. They are great cameras that will last most life times.
