nikkor 60mm reversed. how to keep f stop open?

Recommended Posts

Most lenses keep the f stop "wide open"

This one will keep it completely shut at f22. Impossible for focusing uw.

Any tips to keep it Open without damaging the element?

When I use the revers lens I use the AFD Nikon with the aperture gear. With the "G" series without aperture gear you can use a littel piece of plastic or Papar on the aperture lever on the graft side for open the apertiure and have more light for focusing. The problem is the very close depth of field.

On Canon I think what you do is set the f-stop where you want it on the camera and focus on something and hold the DOF preview button then disconnect the lens.

Try it.
