This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (autofocus, AE metering, image stabilization, etc.) will be disrupted.
Set your exposure manually or meter using your camera's Aperture Priority (stop-down) mode.
If your lens does not have a manual aperture control ring, it will stop down to its smallest f/stop by default.

The only caveat is your lens MUST HAVE AN AUTO/MANUAL SWITCH FOR THE APERTURE. Otherwise, you're stuck shooting wide open or permanently converting your lens to manual. My 50mm f/2.8 Domiplan has a pin for aperture control that must be depressed, which this ring doesn't do. I've also heard that some lenses end up 60 degrees offset when mounted. My two M42 lenses don't suffer from this.
Good if you have a big collection of lenses from your granddad or your adventures on eBay.
2/28/16: Updated to add a photo, so you can see the results. Vivitar 85-205 Zoom. This adapter is amazing on the Canon T5.
6/10/2016 Added a picture showing the small flange. Notice the locking pin for the camera to the adapter.
If you don't already own one, get thee to an auction site and grab yourself a Helios 44-2 (cheap and plentiful... for now), screw this adapter on, take a portrait of your favorite person standing in front of some nice foliage, and watch magic happen. You are going to LOVE the bokeh. I am 99% certain that I saw a shot using this lens on an episode of "24" recently. This Russian lens is a favorite among many filmmakers.
I have 3 M42 lens: 1- f/2,2 55MM; 2- Vivitar f/ 3.8 70-150MM Zoom with a Vivitar 70-150MM 2X multiplier; and 3- Chinon f2.8 28MM wide angle.
All 3 lens (4 - if you count the 2x multiplier) worked perfectly. I always shoot in manual (M) mode with my Cannon EOS 600, so I didn't try the Auto feature.
This is a fantastic adapter, I'm so glad I purchased it.
Fits nice. nothing more to say here.
You get: - Only manual focus. (There is another one whit Dandelion AF confirm chip).
- An odd live view performance in M exposure mode. You always have to let get in much more light (overexpose) to be able to look and focus through LCD screen. So, you have to overexpose to get focus and after that, expose properly to take the shot. This is only a big pain when you are in a really low light situations°°.
- A difficult focus achievement truth the tinys Rebel-type viewfinders.
- An old prime lens mounted on your new brand DSLR, with a slightly twisted final look that don't screw your images. This twist is with the Hellios M44, Super Takumar and Rokinon lenses and I don't know if that happen with other m42 mount type lenses. Anyhow is harmless to image quality.
- 9,00 Dollars(Approx.) minus in you bank account, so do your estimations carefully.
If you have several of this lenses or/and have bad eyes, perhaps it will be good to change your camera focus screen. I don't try it this yet and I don't know if this is a convenient step to take, so be careful.

°°Update 02/2012, canon XSI (450D) owners:
To solve or reduce the dark LCD problem when you are using live view in M exposure, you can pop the in-camera flash up, doing that, the lcd will show you a better lighted image to focus. I find in certain cases this method better than make exposure changes. This work with my canon Rebel XSI but I don't know if this work for other cameras. You can also change to Av, P, or A-DEP exposure mode to make the LCD (live view) screen work properly. (Better than flash method)
The problem with the live view mentioned before is may be caused because the lens is manually stoped down to read the entering ligth, or because of the lack of some electronic contact in the lens. It is different with the auto focus lenses because the camera always read the ligth with the lens diaphragm fully opened to let the LCD show you a proper lighted -exposed- image, except in night photography, sadly.
The canon Rebel XSI (at least mine) can't do nothing (or don't want to ,'cause she's rebel anyway) when you are in a very dark scene, may be because of the lack of any method to simulate and show you a proper exposed image in the LCD before you take the picture, so you see in the LCD what you see through the view finder, not the final image).
Sorry for my English.
