Product FAQ

The camera cannot take pictures, it displays F00
"Please be careful because our lens is manual focus. So the most important thing is to make sure you set the ""no lens release"" mode, otherwise your camera may not be able to take pictures or videos.
Please note afterwards that our lens is a non-contact manual lens, so the camera's f-stop value will not be displayed.
So please turn the aperture ring of the lens to take a picture."

Product out of focus
"This is a common problem with manual focus lenses, and it's easy to fix.
That's where focus peaking comes in it's a guide to help you focus exactly where you want it's a feature that came from videography now you'd find focus peaking in most mirrorless cameras find it.
If you have any Sony mirrorless cameras, in the menu of the focus assist settings called peaking settings, the camera will place colored pixels in the parts of the image it thinks are in focus. Check out the attached video on how to adjust and use this focus peaking feature. We sincerely hope this doesn't affect your use of manual focus lenses."

The focus ring is not locked tightly and can be rotated all the time
"Regarding the problem of free movement, if you find that the focus ring is not fixed or there is no clicking sound when turning, it is normal. Since our lens is a manual focus lens, this is a common design for third-party market lenses and is not a design flaw. The aperture ring also uses the same design. When you try to rotate the focus ring of a manual focus lens, the focus structures move together, so the lens shifts axially. Like an external zoom lens that moves back and forth when changing the focal length. Different lenses have different designs, if you find that a certain design is not suitable for your usage habits, you can give feedback at brightinstarofficial@gmail.com."

The camera shows that the lens is not installed properly or that the lens is not supported
"This came out by pressing the shortcut key. The shortcut key used to be a control of the automatic lens. Now that the manual lens is changed, the shortcut key can no longer be used. Therefore, you can set the shortcut key to other controls through the menu."

After the lens is installed, it feels unstable. There is a little room for shaking. The problem is the amount of ore.
"This is a problem with the widening of the lens, it is normal
That is, there is a thimble hole on the fuselage corresponding to the bayonet. The hole is larger than the thimble. If you rotate the lens like this, the lens will definitely move slightly.
This will not affect the use and feel, and will not affect the picture quality
It will only be tested when it is deliberately shaken. If the card is particularly tight, it will wear more on the fuselage.
Generally, there is some leeway. Otherwise, the standard of the body mount has errors, and the lens will not fit if it is too tight."

How to shoot video with manual lens to focus?
"There are two types of effects that can be used when photographing static objects:
1. Turn the focus ring, the subject will change from unclear to clear, many micro movies will use this effect
2. It is clear at the beginning, and then pan the subject or pan the camera to move the mirror. You can only pan left and right, not forward and backward.

If you are shooting a dynamic object, such as a person moving back and forth
You can turn the focus ring at the beginning to make the subject clear, and then when the subject starts to move, the photographer can follow the subject and move slightly."

Purple fringing when taking pictures
"The purple fringing phenomenon refers to the phenomenon of color spots appearing at the junction of high-light and low-light parts due to the large contrast of the subject during the shooting process of a digital camera. It is the ultraviolet rays of sunlight. There will be lenses too. There are more chances of it appearing in the backlight. It is recommended to shrink the aperture a little bit, adjust the angle to shoot a little bit, or remove it with PS in the later stage."
