p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Metabones smart adapter - cable problems - cautionary tale


Just a heads up: I recently tried to update the firmware on my EOS-M43 smart adapter using my desktop Mac. I got reasonably frustrated for a while - because the software package would not "see" the adapter. I tried another cable and still no luck. As a last resort I took one from my PS4 which I knew was working, and that did the trick. Beware the minimicro whatever USB cables. Now a happy camper - my 100-400 works with AF and IS. About to upgrade the body.

Unfortunately, USB cables are not all alike, even thought they claim to be.

Mark I or II? Which firmware version? What is the AF searching speed like once the lens has been calibrated by the adapter?
Did you push the little toggle lever in while connecting? Not always necessary but you have to do it that way if you want to go back to an earlier firmware version. I still find v2.1 the fastest.

It was this firmware update and yes, I did follow the onscreen instructions. Three times. Only with the third cable did it work - I was beginning to suspect an incompatibility or failure somewhere.

I did not test out the new firmware critically. Only wanted to be up to date and everything worked fine with my GH2 (now sold) and an old 300 f/4 IS.
