How to Switch Lenses on a DSLR/Mirrorless

Hey folks, today we’ll be covering how to swap the lens on your DSLR/mirrorless camera. So, let’s jump right into it.

Removing a Lens

Removing a lens is super easy.

  1. Push the small button on the side of the lens mount.
  2. Twist the lens towards the top/center of the mount. Don’t force it (it should be smooth).
  3. That’s it.

Mounting a Lens

  1. The back/bottom of your lens should have a small dot (typically red, blue, or white).
  2. Align that dot with the (typically white) dot on your camera mount.
  3. Twist the lens (gently) until it clicks into place.

And that’s literally it. If you need further help, check out the video above!
