<p>Hi. I'am working on a same project. I want to cobine FED 3 and Fujifilm ax200. How do I know distance between sensor and lens? </p>
<p>havnt been on here for a while hence the slow reply..</p><p><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flange_focal_distance" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flange_focal_distance...</a> </p><p>your fed lens m39 mount will have a distance of 28.8mm :-)</p>
I had plans to exactly this a while ago, I didn't get round to getting a camera to mutilate though... <br> <br>Interesting take on the plan - reducing the image circle was the main concern I had. It'd have to be damn good, since I'd want to use the camera plenty...
would use this one more, but the digital donor has 'character'. still want to make some improvments with buttons and backplate
There's a full frame compact out there now, however it's an expensive camera to dismantle for a project...
