View Full Version : Metering with manual lenses in movie mode

08-01-2010, 10:03 AM
Hi, I've been reading the forums for two hours or so but could not find a definite answer.
Maybe you could help?

So far I know that when using m42 lenses (or other manual lenses) on 7d with m42 > EOS adapter, the automatic metering is completely off.
That is true for stills mode.
However, what about movie mode? I just played with my one day old 7d and so far it seems that metering is pretty much OK in video mode.
Of course, I did not try every possible scenario.
So, the question for those who have more experience of using manual lenses on 7d with adapters:
Does 7d meter function correctly with these lenses in VIDEO MODE?
