I don't know anything about film cameras but I inherited an old Canon A-1 camera and the lenses I listed below.
What I want to know is are these lenses compatible with a digital camera? And if so, which digital camera do you recommend?
Canon Lens FD 50mm 1:1.4 S.S.C.
Tokina Lens AT-X 28-85mm 1:3.5-4.5 (62mm)
Vivitar Lens MC 35-200mm 1:3.0-4.5 Macro Focusing Zoom (62mm)
Vivitar Series 1 Lens VMC 28-90mm 1:2.8-3.5 Macro Focusing (67mm)
Vivitar Series 1 Lens VMC 70-210mm 1:3.5 Macro Focusing Auto Zoom (67mm)
My cousin used to take landscape and astronomy photos. There are other lens filters and equipment in the mix that I didn't list. I know there is a Celestron telephoto lens that my cousin used but it's somewhere in the house packed away and we haven't found yet.
I currently use a digital Sony DSC H9 and also Panasonic Lumix FZ30 to mainly take photos of butterflies and other wildlife. I also do macro photography on butterfly and moth eggs and caterpillars.
I'd been thinking of purchasing a digital SLR camera this year but just never got around to it. So if these lenses can be used on a digital camera - do let me know - I'll go out and buy it!
Any suggestions and help ya'll can share would be greatly appreciated.
