    Hello all..

    Does anybody know if you can buy a adapter that attaches your lens on backwards so i don't have to hold it when doing reverse lens shots..

    Just a thought, thanks.

    for Canon the German company Novoflex produces (and exports) an adapter set which even connects the electrical connections with the camera body via a cable so you can handle your aperture and all just the way you are used to. not cheap though .

    no idea about other brands. there must be cheaper options

    the novoflex one should be about 200 pounds I guess

    Adorama has them for Nikon at $15 and I imagine B&H also ... They are called "Reversing Rings"
