How Do You Use Old Minolta Lenses On An Olympus E-410 Camera?
When you buy a single lens reflex (SLR) camera such as the Olympus E-410, you’re locked into the Olympus line of lenses, or off brand lenses that fit the Olympus mount. If you have a lens of another brand, you’re usually out of luck. But if you have an older Minolta lens, you can use that on an Olympus E-410 camera, assuming you have the correct adapter. Even better, that adapter is fairly affordable, and can be found online or in camera stores. Remove the dust cap on the backside of the Minolta lens. Twist the lens mount adapter onto the back of the minolta lens. Place the Olympus E-410 down on a work surface so that the lens is pointed up and you can read the word “Olympus” on the top of the camera. Push the lens release button on the right side of the camera and twist the lens counter clockwise. Then pull the pens off of the camera. Set the Minolta lens onto the camera, then twist it clockwise until it clicks into place on the camera.
