Default Old school camera

Is it possible to use my 1969 Canon ftb camera lenses (I have 3) on a new Canon DSLR? Are they compatible?

Thanks.

The ftb was one of the first FD mount cameras. You can get an adapter to use Fd mount lenses on the current EF mount, but honestly the quality is not likely to be terribly good on today's high-resolution digital sensors.

Good for a bit of fun though.
