Canon 6 Mark ii 'release without shutter' option?

15 Dec 2020 11:52AM

I have an old Nikon lens that I'm using on my Canon 6D Mark ii for stop motion animation.

I get an error err 01, saying the camera lost communication with lens.

For my purposes I don't need communication between the camera and the lens and would like to manual focus

I am trying the fix this gentleman shows @1:25 in the youtube video below,

and to cover the sensor in my Nikon lens with electrical tape.

Yet when I go to the custom function III tab, I can't find any 'release without shutter' option.

The closest I can find is LENS AF, with AF Stop, and 7 other options.

Will any of these options give the same result of 'release without shutter', for example if I choose AF Stop, or AE Lock?

Thankyou for your time, any advice would be welcome.

I am guessing that is an option on the Canon M50 but not an option on the Canon 6D Mark II.

Try this to see if it will help. I only know that I could use film lenses on my Sony Alpha 100
