Why you need a Autofocus (AF) chip for your vintage lens.

After picking up a vintage Olmpus OM 50 mm 1.4 G.Zuiko Lens, in order to use it you need to get a adapter ring for you camera. For me it was the Canon T2i using a Olympus OM adaptor to EOS. You can just buy finished one on amazon for $20-$35 dollars ( https://amzn.to/2Egpchi )
Why you need one:

  1. it allows you to focus confirm from the eye piece and focus points rather than using the LiveView mode which uses more power.
  2. Audiable focus confirm
  3. Works with the built in focus points.

They have adaptors with chips on it for sale, but if you cant find one, you can always glue on your ring yourself.

DIY: How to install an Autofocus (AF) chip on a Vintage Lens Adaptor. (Olympus to Canon)

How to install a Canon Autofocus (AF) chip on a Vintage Lens Adaptor:
Basically i got a few 1970s Olympus OM lenses that i want to use on my Canon T2i DSLR. With adaptor ring it works but you cant find focus through the view finder. So you need to use LiveView to see if its focused. This causes high battery use. Installing a AF chip allows you to use the view finder electronics and the focus points.

You will need an af chip for your canon DLSR, a converter ring and some epoxy. I bought a converter ring with a chip ( https://amzn.to/2Egpchi ) and had some epoxy . … or you can just buy finished one on ebay or amazon for $30-$50 dollars ( https://amzn.to/2Egpchi ). This small project was fun. Enjoy.

Costco! Lotus Foods Millet & Brown RICE RAMEN! 10 Pack! $9!!! REVIEW

Costco has Lotus Foods Millet & Brown RICE RAMEN in a 10 Pack box for $9!!! This is also sold online: https://amzn.to/2EgXDEn .

I bought a 10 pack to try. It’s interesting to note that this Rice Ramen is gluten free and organic. Good for folks who need a gluten free diet. At $1 per ramen, this is pricer than my 24 for $7 Nissin Cup Noodles ( https://amzn.to/2V8YMDN ) . Without the gluten it is missing a bounce factor in the noodle. The noodles and Red Miso soup tastes fine and is less filling than the traditional instant ramen.

Overall it is a good soup base and is quick to cook. It took about 4 to 5 minutes in the microwave to cook. I added ham and spinach to my ramen for protein and iron. The Miso soup base has some what strong smelling sea weed. I think its good tasting but my friends had different tastes.

Is it worth it? Leave a comment below!
