Whether you're shooting digitally or on film, Fotodiox offers the world's largest selection of lens adapters. Mix camera/lens platforms or reinvigorate vintage glass; Fotodiox has hundreds of ways to mount lenses onto your DSLR or SLR camera. Our adapters deliver infinity focus and a sturdy build for lasting quality. From standard to portrait, tilt/shift to wide angle - Fotodiox adapters are designed to offer an inexpensive system that enables you to choose from a vast range of lenses to better suit your needs.
One of the problems of using manual focus lenses on Canon EOS bodies is that focus confirmation is disabled. When AF lenses are used - even in manual focus mode - all Canon EOS bodies confirm focus with a green dot in the viewfinder and an (optional) audible beep. However when non-EF compatible lenses are used via an adapter, the focus confirmation is disabled. Unless the camera thinks that an EF compatible lens is attached to it, it switches off both visual and audible focus indication.
Focus confirmation chips 'trick' the Canon EOS body into thinking an EF lens was attached, so that the focus confirmation indicators work with any lens attached. Focus confirmation chips are great because:
Those old split prism viewfinders made a huge difference when focusing, kind of like your own phase detect focusing system.
The leaf spring design in the adapter holds the lens tight to the adapter, mimicking the leaf springs in the camera body, ensuring there is no play between the camera and the lens. The all metal design and polished surface are designed to guarantee a smooth mounting experience for years to come. The depth of the adapters are designed to take into account the differences in focal flange distances between the lens and camera ensuring that all lenses, both brand name and third party, will focus at least to infinity (if not slightly past).
Fotodiox Pro adapters are designed with tight tolerances to create a solid, gap free, no play, no wiggle connection with no adjustments ever needed. The precision all-metal construction with chrome plated brass mounts for a secure and solid fit are backed by the Fotodiox 24-month warranty.

Fotodiox SKU: BarndoorKit-Universal | Helix SKU: FXBarndoorKitUniversal
The Universal Barndoor Kit comes with a grid and three color gels within metal frames. Barndoor devices alter the shape, amount, or color of the light output from the flash heads. The universal barndoor fits a reflector diameter of 5.5-7in and also has a built-in holder for metal and color gels.
Using a barndoor set attached to the front of the reflector of your light source will allow you to control the light cast on a subject. The more leaves on a barndoor set and the longer the leaves are, the more the light 'beam' may be specifically controlled. Positioning of the leaves will determine the size of the light shaft. Rotating the leaves will determine the angle of the shaft of light. A 4-leaf barndoor provides more light control than a 2-leaf barndoor set.
