Automatic exposure and shutter release lock in older and more modestly priced Sony cameras when using lenses that are not compatible with Sony models
Unscrewing the lens of a DSLR camera reveals the pins on the bayonet. Through these pins, the camera communicates with the lens, where the counterparts to the pins are situated on the screw thread. Older and more modestly priced Sony cameras, such as the Alpha 200 for example, block automatic exposure (aperture priority) and prevent the shutter release from working if a non-Sony-compatible lens is attached. LM DSLR adapters normally have no built-in electronics, so some Sony models must be used in “manual” mode. In order to enable automatic exposure and shutter release, we are offering a T2 adapter with integrated chip. This “cons” the camera into believing that it is connected to a compatible (i.e. Sony) AF lens and thereby removes any obstacles to working with other lenses!
Current Sony cameras such as the Sony NEX5 and the Sony Alpha 55, however, have no shutter release lock, so auto exposure also works with non-Sony lenses.
For cameras with shutter release lock, the lock must be deactivated in the menu (by selecting the option “release without lens”). Once the lock has been deactivated, automatic exposure can be used without limitation.
