Metabones Adds “Native” AF and Smooth Iris to EF Mount Speed Boosters and Smart Adapters by Firmware

Metabones just released a major firmware update (Metabones App 2.3) for Canon EF to E-mount Smart adapters and Speed Boosters to add “Native” AF and Smooth Iris features.

Metabones has already added fast EF lens autofocus to its Micro Four Thirds Mount Speed Boosters and Smart Adapters last year. With this speedy advantage now extended to E-Mount, EF-Mount lenses are now capable of focusing quickly across the widest variety of mirrorless cameras with trusted Metabones precision and reliability.

The smooth iris feature slows down the movement of the electromagnetic aperture diaphragm so that video footage transitions smoothly when the aperture changes, with reduced tick noise from the lens. The latest Canon and Tamron SP lenses have special support for this feature and Metabones® makes use of it if the lens supports it.
