Canon M50 issue with 50mm 1.8 lens



I need some help. I have a  canon M50 new that doesn't work with my lenses canon 50mm 1.8, the shutter stays at F00  all the time and I can't take any photos.

I tested my the lenses on another camera and worked flawlessly, I already used 2 two different adapters and doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Re: Canon M50 issue with 50mm 1.8 lens

Sounds like you have two problems to me. The first problem is your adapter.  It sounds like you could have a third party, low cost lens adapter that does not connect the lens to the camera body.  This could be why the aperture reads F00.


Your second problem is related to the adapter.  By default, the camera will not fire the shutter if it does not communicate with a lens.  You have to go into the menus and enable the setting that allows the camera to release shutter without a lens attached.
