EN: Bayonet mount


A bayonet mount is a fastening mechanism consisting of a male side with one or more pins or claws, and a female receptor with matching slots and springs to keep the two parts locked together. Bayonet mounts are commonly used to attach interchangeable lenses to cameras, and lens hoods to lenses.

A type of lens mount commonly used with heavier lenses, such as zoom lenses. In contrast to screw-mount lenses, bayonet lenses are attached to the camera with a locking mechanism. Bayonet lenses can typically be changed much faster than screw-mount lenses.
