    Guys,

    I bought this adapter to use with my Ursa Mini:

    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._to_canon.html

    But I can't get it to fit in the camera. It fits but it won't rotate to lock. Shouldn't it work? I tried on a canon dlsr of mine and it works...

    David, looks like you are going to need to send it back, not all EOS adapters will fit a EF mount found on thr Ursa Mini. These are basically very cheap adapters, thst do not necessarily meet the original Canon EF Lens Mount specifications.

    MTF Services has a nicely made EF to PL adapter and they also give the required lens clearances that will work with an adapter. Not very many PL lenses can be used with an adapter on a EF mount.
    See: https://www.lensadaptor.com/pl-canon-ef-adaptor
    Cheers

    Thanks Denny. After some workarounds, I took the tripod foot off and it finaly rotated to the lock position. At first it didn't look like it was that foot that was blocking it, but I took it off and it worked. This adapter was so cheap that I might keep it. Any idea what rod support I may need, now that the tripod foot is unusable in this setup?

    thanks
