Jake von Slatt, proprietor of the Steam Punk Workshop site, has this handy little step-by-step showing the process involved in mounting older lenses from film cameras to the body of today's DSLR. I'm actually kinda disappointed that the resulting photos don't look more vintage!

While digging through my old camera equipment I came across my Grandfather's 35mm Exa . While I have absolutely no desire to revisit the days of film, I was kind of interested in what sort of image the old German made lens would produce on my modern Canon DSLR so I went in search of a way to attach it.
