I have an edmika Fd to EF adapter i use on my 600 f4.5 FD he is on this forum send him a pm he does mounts for the 50 1.4 Fd too the beauty is you can use it on your other cameras not just the m but you will need the EF-m to EF adapter to use. his adapters come with chipsI think it is the same like old Canon FD lenses with a non electric FD -> EOS M adapter:
From Enyoyyourcamera / the Quenox adapter I use:
für Canon EOS Meos-m eosm ef-m ef m
Aktivieren Sie unter Individualfunktionen/C.Fn. IV: Operation/Weiteres die Funktion "Auslösen ohne Objektiv", damit die Kamera auslöst.
For Canon EOS:
Activate custom functions C.Fn. IV: Operation -> "Shutter release without lens" or similar.
In manual mode: Exposure Simulation doesn't work properly - the display view during liveview is much darker compared to the stored image.
Use Av mode and the hold function ( * ) on the multicontroler to control exposure - here the exposure simulation is correct.

This is how you do it but i installed an AF confirm chip on my lens so it reports exif and lens data metering all seems good too and no different to any other canon camera i have. once the AF chip is on you don't need to turn on that setting
Please, can you give me a hint how you use e.g. a FD 1.4 50mm S.S.C. on a EOS M with a AF chip? Or do you have a special FD -> EF-M Adapter?
Thanks - Michael
