  • Created discussion thread 44M Helios. Reverse lens comparison.
    I have 2 Helios 44M lenses. Modified one to hopefully increase swirl bokeh. The front lens was turned so the convex side faced inwards (1.5mm washer cobbled so the front lens didn't touch the 2nd ...
  • Obviously not your lens.. but it seem dried or drying grease is a cause of stiff focus. IF ALL ELSE FAILS and you have to keep the lens, maybe a you tube video on freeing it up. The one posted is a ...

    Thanks.. won't be a ff camera, shall play, experiment with the 600D. There's always screw on filter effect lenses.. 👍

    Thank you.
  • Replied in bokeh
    Thanks.. was wondering what effect if any, a magnifying lens had on an bokeh/ swirly bokeh. Not looking for an effect, wondered what itt would be.. have ordered step up adaptor so so shall experiment.
  • Created question thread bokeh
    (1) Canon 600D. Have quite fallen for Helios 44M.. all manual. (2) As the 44M is part renowned for bokeh, which happens towards the edges, ...

  • So is a "prime" lens yes?
  • Created discussion thread mirror lens, helios,bokeh
    Hi, playing with 500mm mirror lens on the tree. Then read about a Helios 44-2 f2 58mm lens which I believe acts as a prime lens (?) an needs an adaptor ring.. but quite cheap.. and gives circles ...
  • Tend to keep around 55mm as found that 'easiest'.. also as 600D has a button to mag live view to 5m 10m  (and others between) I use that to improve manual focus.. still takes at normal live.. not ...
  • Agreed.. can't focus at 18mm.. can prob just below.. thinking 45mm -55mm?. Thinking learn by 'suck it and see'.. aka practice rather than theory.. trouble is, some theory helps! lol
  • Rather feeling same re Tubes. Camera off, mess with lens camera on.. reverse repeat!! Filter lens, screw on..screw off.. know exactly mag (just trying to understand mag.. as poss you... tend to do ...
  • Agreed, have never (ever) played with WB. Might try it to see diff effects.. but might not, just mess about with any post production instead..lol 👍 Think the tech guys say.. chip has 9 extra spare ...
  • Re a reply earlier (?) .. my daughter bought a very decent cameraphone and gave her Fuji pix (?) 400mm bridge camera to her son. (Bridge camera was because she's travelled Europe, lighter on ...
  • Thanks for simple explanation. Always willing to try 'out of the ordinary/ don't do that.. for the 'quirky' result.. ever hopeful. The guy I bought the mirror lens said 'enjoy the circles'!  ...
  • 2 days late, tubes have arrived. Mixed feelings.. waiting in car outside A and E, messing with camera. Nice sharp images, decided on manual focus. Using kit lenses, 18-55mm and 55- 250mm. ( NOTE ...
  • Hi, as another novice (?) not knowing your camera, re focus, first check to see it is set to AF.. prob a small switch on the lens saying AF. If it is set to MF= Manual focus. Do not manual focus ...
