AlphaMirrorless 040: Fotodiox’s Nikon to Sony E Adapter

AlphaMirrorless 040: Fotodiox Releases A Nikon to Sony E Adapter Plus A Few Other Loose Ends

Fotodiox just recently released the FUSION Smart AF Adapter to adapt Nikon Lenses to the Sony E mount. While there have been other adapters for Nikon lenses this is the first one that promises full AutoFocus and exposure functionality with the Sony E mount system. While neither Juan nor Andy have had the opportunity to try this adapter out themselves, Marc Muench, our trusted friend has so we dragged him into the podcast so that he could share with all of us his experience with this much anticipated adapter.

But we are not yet done with this episode, after the talk with Marc, Andy talks to us about his recent computer system upgrades and how he decided to tackle his image storage and backup issues, while Juan shares with us his thoughts on the recent uproar on Apples decision to forgoe established USB3 and Thunderbolt port on the newest MacBook Pro laptops in favor of USB-C; also known as “Donglegate”.

We don’t always have all the answers, but if we don’t we will research it and try to give you the best answer we can. So what have you got to lose, go ahead and send in your questions to us by going to this form.

  1. Saw the Jason Lanier Fotodiox test drive on the Sony a6300. While he’s a shock jock most of the time, I doubt he’d make a prank video to talk trash about a product. In fact, he brags about the fact Sony is compatible with other non-Sony products.

    I don’t even see how this is possible, but if it is, then it’s scary to see an adaptor rendering a camera useless. Camera manufacturers won’t take responsibility for it, and Fotodiox will definitely not take responsibility for it. It makes me question the safety of adaptors altogether. I’ll wait to see if more people report similar incidents.
