FOCAL REDUCER

Postby orooro on Thu Jan 06, 2011 8:10 am

I woul like to have an advice from you for my problem.
I have optical tube Vixen ED102SS and I bought original focal reducer SS for this optical tube but I can not install reducer on tube due tu missing rings: "Direct Wide Outer Ring" and "Direct Wide Inner Ring"
Please inform me if I have to buy also T-ring because I use photocamera Canon EOS 350D?

Where I supply ???

Kind regards,
Zlatko Orbanic

Hi

As to the outer and inner rings, contact Vixen if you are missing them. As to the t-ring, yes, you will also need a t-ring for an EOS and if you plan to use it as per the illustration - by removing the inner ring of the t-ring (all t-rings are made with a ring within a ring), I would make it a Vixen t-ring for an EOS, Vixen #37306.
