Q & A

[box type=”info”]Q: Will this work with my [insert camera] lens?

A: We have two mount adapters, one for Nikon and one for Canon. The Nikon SLR Mount works with *all* Nikon lenses (it’s an F-mount adapter). The Canon SLR Mount only works with EOS lenses (it is an EF-mount adapter). It is not compatible with Canon EF-S or FD lenses.[/box]

[box type=”info”]Q: Can I use my OWLE iPhone Video Rig with the SLR Mount?

A: Yup! Both use a 37mm thread, so you can put the mount adapter onto your OWLE.[/box]

[box type=”info”]Q: Can I adjust the aperture of my SLR lens while I’m using the mount?

A: Depends on what lens you’re using! Most old school film SLR lenses have an aperture ring on them. If you’re using a newer digital lens then you’re out of luck.[/box]

[box type=”info”]Q: Hold up, why are the images upside down?

A: The SLR Mount doesn’t have any mirrors inside. Usually there’s a mirror inside your camera that flips the image right-side up. But iPhones are indeed mirror-less, so you’ll have to rotate the images using an editing app.[/box]

[box type=”info”]Q: Why are my photos grainy/splotchy?

A: The Lens Mount uses a focusing screen just like your DSLR. It can get dirty easily since it is relatively unprotected (it’s exposed each time you assemble the mount). Be sure to clean it using an air-duster or soft cloth each time you shoot. You may still see some particles, that’s normal.[/box]

[box type=”info”]Q: My images are coming out a tad darker than I’d like, what’s the deal?

A: We’ve found that you’ll lose about 1 to 2 f-stops when using the adapter. Using an older lens with a manual aperture ring helps control this. Otherwise you may need to brighten up the images in post.[/box]
