Video: Canon EF Mount for Nokia N8 (and sample)

| January 21, 2012 | 1 Reply

Do you remember Michael’s Telescope Mod for the N8? He mentioned you could pretty much put any type of lenses. This time he’s made a connector for the Canon EF style Lenses.

It’s just a proof of concept, his mount is made of cardboard, rubber bands and the screw cap of the lens is what’s used to attach it. At the end of the video, you can see some samples and they look pretty good.  I’m liking that effect of manually focusing in and out during video to change between foreground and background subjects when you have a lens like a 50mm 1.8 or similar that have narrow depths of field. The N8 of course is designed to have a very wide depth of field (without being EDoF).


It won’t work to just have a canon lens on the N8 (like the stock photo we use for N8 successor stories).
