How to adapt a Focal reducer to Sony NEX-F3 camera

How to adapt a focal reducer-speed booster to Sony NEX F3. In this video is a demonstration for adapting Pixco A mount to E mount focal reducer.




 The Pixco brand is a cheaper brand compared to the high cost of Metabones adapter. Shown are two sample photographs taken with the Sony camera and Tamron 80-300 lens. The first photo with a regular adapter and camera settings at F4.5, ISO 200, 1.50 shutter, on a tripod with 10 sec delay. 


The second, with the same settings except the Focal reducer is attached. 


Finally there is short footage taken outdoors with the Tamron lens and reducer in place. Hope this is helpful to anyone looking to use their A mount lenses with a Reducer and the E mount cameras. You can alse use this with any E mount camera including Sony 6000, 6300, 6500 and others. Any questions or comments, feel free to reach me through the comment section below.
