    If you have a lens which doesn't fit correctly on the mount, and are unhappy, send it back to them for a refund.

    When Paul sends it back ( he hasn't been in contact yet) we will of course take a look at it and test it here. I am confident the adaptor is spot on and the problem is a back focus issue with his F3...

    There is "no duff one". It's a combination of the setup on your F3 with the Canon lenses. But to show we are an honest, reliable company who stand by their guarentee, contact us off the forum for a...

    Well Paul I can quite assure you our adapters are spot on and are milled to thousanths of an inch accuracy. Considering how many we have sold, (we struggle to make them fast enough for our...

    It has nothing to do with the Adaptimax, and everything to do with the Canon lenses. Get the blame on the right piece of kit please.

    The Canon lenses are stills lenses and are NOT designed for...

    To adjust aperture you use a Canon EOS. Set aperture, hold down the depth of field button, remove lens and pop it onto the F3. very simple and it works, though of course there's no denying it's...

    Just like to say that due to Adaptimax's re-organisation within the group of companies owned by us, we can now offer all our adaptors minus the VAT. So if you are in the EU and are not VAT...

    Glad you like it Bob. Our Adaptimax Nikon and Canon EF to PMW-F3 adapters are made here in the UK by ourselves in our own workshop, not some factory in China, and are as sharp as tack. We quality...

    Just a heads up to let you all know the Adaptimax Nikon Plus to PMW-F3 is now in stock for next day shipping. It has the shortened thumbscrew so that the camera can be placed on a flat surface with...

    Yes its the only way to do it. We have sold hundreds and hundreds of Canon EF adapters to the PMW-EX3, Micro 4/3 and now F3, and in a couple of weeks time the Canon EF to Sony E-mount. All need a...

    The results are not great. We made a prototype of this very setup and found the issues with it outweighed bringing it to release. Instead we offer a Canon EF to PMW-F3 and it has been selling faster...

    No you use a Canon EOS to adjust aperture of the lens then pop it back onto the F3.

    Thanks for pointing that out. It's a typo and I have contacted them to change it. The magnification factor is 1.5 on a Nikon Plus to PMW-F3.

    The Adaptimax Canon EF, Nikon Original and Nikon Plus to F3 is now shipping and selling like hot cakes as expected. We manufacture the best adapters on the market and that's the reason more often...

    Hi Ryan,
    the Adaptimax Canon EF to Micro 4/3 is in stock and we can Fedex one out to you straight away. I won't give the sales pitch as others have already sung our praises. If you use promotional...

    Yes you are right, there's no way of accurately telling what the aperture is, you just have to use your eye. With the screw the thread is fine so you can tweak the iris very finely.
    Don't forget...

    Thanks for the possitive feedback on our Adaptimax range of adapters. We strive to be the best we possibly can be, and yes I admit our adapters are not cheap. But they are not churned out by the...

    Hi Jim,
    unscrew the thumbscrew all the way out. Take the lens off the Adaptimax. If the lens has an external aperture ring make sure you haven't inadvertantly closed the iris. Does the thumbscrew...

    Hi Jim, if you purchased the Adaptimax Plus to Micro 4/3 you can just adjust the lens iris with the built in thumbscrew. We manufacture two types of adapter for Nikon to Micro 4/3. The Adaptimax...

    After careful consideration we decided to skip the built in iris version. In testing we had decent results but overall not good enough to bring about a release. We pride ourselves in producing...

    There's a huge difference between the cheap Chinese adapters and an adapter like the Adaptimax, and it's not just the price!

    The Chinese adapters are churned out by the million with loose...
