Precautions when using the lens mount adapter

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Follow the guidelines below to prevent damage to the camera or the attached A-mount lens when using the lens mount adapter:

  • Due to the weight of the attached lens, always hold the underneath of the lens when carrying the camera.
  • When connecting to a tripod, use the attachment on the underside of lens (if applicable), not the mount adapter; the weight of the lens can cause stress on the camera and mount adapter.

NOTE: It is recommended that a tripod with a removable tripod attachment be used.
