I've read that the camera can register profiles for manual lenses, but there's not a lot written about this, and the camera manual is massive.

Thanks in advance to whoever knows and shares the answer.

When I use an adapted, non-electronic lens on my SD15, I set the camera aperture to be the same as that set on lens aperture ring. The camera aperture setting is recorded in the EXIF - even though it is not communicated to the lens, obviously.

The fp may or may not work the same.

That’s quite interesting! I haven’t owned a single camera with that ability before. I really want to hear from fp owners... Maybe I should try the L-mount forum?
