I highly recommend that you at least glance at my previous attempt at this type of conversion.
Because both projects are very similar, I will be referring to a few photos from the last project, as well as copying some of the content directly. So don’t hate me for being lazy.
Because a 127mm lens worked so well the last time, I knew I would be using one again for this one.
Using the last couple of automatic to manual conversions as a starting point, I wanted to try to make this one just a little bit cleaner. And the electronic timer on the back is a huge plus.
The flash socket on this model also led me to want to try to have it be a mount for an everyday electronic flash.
