I was getting bored this morning and I set out on a DIY reverse mount thingy on my D5000 for some macro photography. I scavenged an old body cap I had and cut its center open. Then I used an old UV filter and removed its lens. Then attached it on the body cap so the screw grooves are pointed out. After tidying up everything i tried it on my D5000 but damn it doesn't work.
The camera says there is no lens attached! Is there a way to override this? Or did I did something wrong? Or even better, was I totally hectic to set out on this with the D5000 body?
Please help me, I don't want my 2 hours toil to to vain! Please help me out guys, let the cat out please!
Thank you in advance!
