Digital Cameras, Digital Photography & Manual Focus Lenses on Digital Cameras

My Digital Photography posts are not only about the use of modern digital cameras and the lenses made for them, such as the Lensbaby Velvet 56, but also about using old glass and manual focus lenses on modern digital camera bodies via the use of third party adapters and home made methods. I enjoy this hybrid approach to photography because it is a balanced mix of old and new. Modern mirrorless cameras made by well known companies like Olympus, Panasonic and Sony are ideal for mounting adpated manual focus lenses because of the typically short register distance between the back lens element and the digital sensor.
