So I bought an excellent used Canon EOS-1 V film camera yesterday with hopes of using it with my Contax 85 1.4 N converted to EOS by Conurus and it doesn't work! I was thinking it's not compatible with film cameras, I can Manual focus but can't set aperture value (reads 00), when I press shutter it lags.

It works very well on my 5D MKII canon and produces awesome images

Question Is there a way I can use it that I am missing? Or is it incompatible?

I don't mind using it in full manual mode with rings and MF.

Hi, Phil

I have a EOS-1V body.

I tested the 85/1.4 converted lens on EOS-1V and 5D today.

The lens is completely same on both body.

Can you change a new battery for EOS-1V?

When the battery power is low, the body has no enough power to
operate lens it maybe show you 00. I am just saying maybe.

Good luck!

Andrew
