Autofocus with extenders attached
I frequently see posts where people talk about taping over pins on extenders to fool the camera into autofocusing. Can someone tell me which pins to tape over on canon extenders?
Re: Autofocus with extenders attached
With the converter in hand:
Looking at the end of the converter that attaches to the lens.
Rotate it so the contacts are at the top.
The leftmost 3 contacts are the ones to tape over.
For reference, the rightmost 3 contacts are on a raised area.
Good luck, I tested it two years ago, and it works. But do not expect AF to be fast...
