Studio Fun – Fujifilm X-A10 and Canon FD 50mm Macro Lens (75mm APS-C Sensor)

Still playing with our new addition. Our slightly used Fujifilm X-A10 (16.3MP) mirrorless camera mated with one of our favorite Canon lenses – Canon FD 50mm f3.5 macro lens.

It was the most inexpensive way to get one of Fujifilm’s X series bodies and to make use of our collection of Canon FD lenses from the late 1970s and early 1980s.

f5.6 ISO 800

Shallow depth-of-field at f5.6 (above). At f32 almost the entire spool is in focus (greater depth-of-field) below.


f32 ISO 1000

The Canon FD 50mm lens 35mm equivalent is 75mm on the APS-C sensor.


The camera… $189, adapter… $59.95, lens $75

Shot with Fujifilm film simulation mode Velvia Vivid. Little to no post production. We’re happy campers (and photogs)!

    1. Hi, Yes Dana we have some posted on our flickr page that you can link to from the blog. We’ve had a blast using it. I especially like the Fuji mated to our Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens. Nice quality film like images with it. We’ve used the 24mm around town and in the studio. Chris


      1. I’ll see if I can find the link to your flickr page. In picked up an X-T20 two weeks ago and have been using it with the 18-55mm kit lens as well as a lot of vintage Nikkor lenses. It is a wonderful little camera.
