25mm f/1.4 (C-mount) samples
May 4, 2010

I just got this no-name CCTV lens recently and was blown away by the way it portrays the world. It features just about every technical imperfection photography has tried to overcome in the past 100 years, but it just doesn't matter when I look at the shots.

Some features:

  • costs $40US

  • it's razor-sharp in the center

  • features continuous iris adjustment so you can use it as a pinhole or adjust aperture while shooting video

  • it's amazingly small and lightweight (see last photo)

Here are some unmanipulated samples from the first test shoot. Can't wait to shoot some more, it's a real pleasure!

This was shot in cross process filter mode:
