Fotodiox has announced its new Canon to FUJIFILM GFX Autofocus Adapter with Variable ND. The new adapter, as the name suggests allows FUJIFILM GFX users to mount Canon EF lenses and have full access to autofocus, image stabilization, and aperture control.
Not only can it utilize all of those features, but the adapter has a built-in variable Neutral Density Filter that provides between 1-8 stops.

The FUSION technology built into the adapter enables electronic communication between the lens and the camera. The FUSION adapter enables auto focus, aperture control, image stabilization, and more. This adapter enables EXIF and aperture data to be transmitted to and controlled by the camera. Different lenses may exhibit different operating characteristics depending on lens age and manufacturer. Foptodiox recommends testing individual lenses in your setup before critical shoots.
Hold on, how do Canon EF lenses cover a Medium format sensor?
Although the adapter will allow you to mount any Canon EF lens, you may experience vignetting on some lenses as the image circle may not fully cover the larger sensor of the GFX system. If you do, the GFX-EF Fusion Smart AF adapter includes a built-in switch to change between Medium Format mode (full sensor) and 35mm mode (cropped sensor) to take full advantage of all lenses available. Fotodiox also includes a switch on the adapter to allow you quickly and smoothly switch from Aperture Priority mode to Program Mode without needing to navigate in-camera menus.
Fusion Smart AF Lens Adapters also include a micro USB port to allow for firmware updates providing a nearly future proof solution for GFX users. For firmware updates and directions, please see the firmware update article for this adapter in the Fotodiox technical support knowledge base.
Built-in Variable Neutral Density 1-8 stops
The Vizelex ND Throttle used in the adapter offers 1 to 8 stops of light reduction. The new Vizelex Cine ND Throttle now features a geared rotating ring for more precise ND selections and can be used with follow focus accessories.
The Vizelex Cine ND Throttle reduces light transmission by one stop when at its ‘Min’ position. The adapter helps maintain shallow depth of field in bright conditions while eliminating the tedious process of changing filters every time the exposure changes. With the filter positioned in the rear, image quality is better than if the same filter were mounted on the front of a lens. The variable ND filter is made from optical polycarbonate (CR39) for claimed clarity and durability.
What is it made out of?
The Pro line of adapters is crafted to withstand the rigors and demands of the professional user. The adapter is manufactured with precise tolerances, that are claimed to provide g a solid, gap free, no wiggle connection. According to Fotodiox, the adapters are meant to be taken off and put back on your camera as much as needed while remaining as precise as the day you bought them.
Fotodiox Pro adapters feature all-metal, no plastic construction to create a secure connection between your glass and camera that will not degrade over time. The company uses chrome-plated brass mounts for enhanced durability and reliability. All Fotodiox products are backed by a 24-month Fotodiox Manufacturer Warranty.
