Zenitar 16mm 2.8
« on: August 15, 2012, 10:29:16 PM »
Hello!
I'm new here and I would like to thanks all the crew for the huge work for Magic Lantern!
I have a question about Bulb/focus ramping:
I own a Zenitar 16mm and I wonder if this function would work with this lens ?
Thanks

I think that lens is fully manual right (manual focus and manual aperture)?

If so, focus ramping won't work since that requires auto focus, however bulb ramping works since that's based on the shutter speed and ISO rather than the aperture (make sure to be in A mode and set the required aperture physically on the lens).

Hello!
You're right. It's all manual.
It's a good news for the bulb ramping. :)
Thanks
