Metabones Updates EF to E Mount Smart Adapter

Vancouver, Canada, July 27, 2012 - Metabones refreshes its highly successful Smart Adapter (for mounting EF and EF-S mount lenses on Sony NEX cameras) with an improved design. Among the new features of this Second Edition are a detachable AS-style quick release plate, a round opening with proprietary anti-reflection measures and a new “Green Power-Save” mode that cuts down battery consumption by reducing aperture diaphragm and image stabilization actuation during image preview.

Heralded as the first electronic adapter for mounting EF and EF-S lenses on Sony NEX cameras with aperture control directly by the camera body, EXIF and image stabilization lens support, the Metabones Smart Adapter has since become an indispensable tool for the most demanding cinematographers and other professionals. Now, the Second Edition adds numerous incremental refinements based on customer feedback.

The Second Edition will be available in August 2012 at the same price from Metabones' distributors in many countries all over the world and the Metabones online shop.
