Using E-mount Lenses on the Venice 2


Recommended Posts

This past week, we were planning to shoot with two Venices, each equipped with an E-mount lens. I thought, "No problem, I'll just remove the Venice's PL-mount, exposing the E-mount, and we'll be ready to go." However, it becomes tricky when you need to adjust the aperture. The lenses we were using did not have a physical aperture adjustment, and could only be adjusted through a camera. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to do this, and nothing came up when I searched Google, so I thought I'd post here for future Googlers.

The only way to adjust aperture on an E-mount lens is to set assignable buttons for the adjustment. It's in the Project section of the full menu (which can be accessed by either holding down the menu button, or by pressing the menu button and the selection dial simultaneously).

 Anyways, hope this helps someone out in the future!
