Franz Weber: Nah, I have even found a 20 year old functional iPhone in the desert. True story!

You must have been in a time machine and travelled to 2027 to find a 20 year old one .
20 years ago they hadn't been invented !

dwill23: *Correction*
EOS 5e? what's that?

It was on the
Elan IIe
Elan 7e
And the awesome EOS 3 (which didn't have an 'e' but still had the feature on it's 45 pt af sensor)

No , they didn't make a mistake , no need for a correction .
Hard to believe the rest of the world knows it by a different name than in the states .

.
The "Elan" branding was only used in American market , as was the "Rebel" for some DSLR's .

Rob Bernhard: Did that guy really just use a metal spatula on a non-stick pan?

Nah , a cook would use the end of a greasy apron to clean his lens , and a basting brush to clean a sensor !

Arastoo Vaziri: Not bad for a dead medium...

@ Arastoo . Nice to see your intolerance and arrogance to other people , you must have a good view of things up on your high horse .
It's true auto correct on smart phones aren't often to smart !
That doesn't change how your post's show up your ignorance and an inability to grasp a simple business sense ( in any language ).

If your a firm releasing a new film then the images you release to the press want to be the six of the best , not flawed or damaged ones .
There's film of mine that I've developed that's come out flawed , not a problem to me and I don't blame the film supplier , it's either something I've done or the (old) camera to blame .
But I don't showcase these when I'm trying to sell a product .
If these are the best results that can be expected then I would have little faith in the product .

RootX: During the Nazi period and throughout WW2, Leitz produced cameras, range-finders, and other optical systems for the Nazis.

@ Rootx , at least you've now been reading up on things , but you still need to understand and interpret the reasons for their choices and actions they made during the war .
Not everything was done out of hate , selfishness, profiteering or self preservation .
A certain amount of subterfuge was needed for the greater good .
There were far worse places to end up than a Leica factory ........think about it ...

Before you show too much ignorance about Leitzs' dealing with the Nazi's you might want to look into the history of Ernst Leitz .

They carried on making them after the war too .
It's not just Germans that buy them .
Shock horror , during the war there were firms making all sorts of things for the war effort on all sides , guns , bombs , tanks , same was going on on both sides . You still buy stuff off them .

You know that camera that you use ?
The firm that makes that now was trading under a different name then , guess what , they made stuff for the war effort too .
It doesn't take a genius to work out that if a firm didn't supply the goods ordered by it's government/army , it wouldn't be long before that firm was under new management following the early death of the old one !

Adverts were put out by the war ministry for the public to sell them their quality photographic equipment to be used by the British military to gather information .
So Leica and Contax ( and others ) gear was also being used by the allied forces too .
I've no issue buying Japanese , German , Russian , Chinese , British or whatever

DarnGoodPhotos: Would anyone really buy this lens based on those sample photos?

Plenty of people will buy this lens just because it's a 50mm f/0.95 lens , without seeing sample pictures .
Go figure..

realmadeira: quite a brave challenge to go with Nikonos, B&W film, own processing without ANY experience with above. A lazy and cheap person could have just taken GoPro and got better pictures

In what way could a GoPro have gotten better pictures ?
The Nikonos was built and designed for the job and the photographer took the pictures .

Ribbit74: This is the risk you take with crowdfunding... there's no obligation whatsoever for the company to deliver you the goods. But they thank you for your generous donation.

Tell that to the backers that have just found out they've lost their money , and got no lens .

Imager of: How is Japan or China not on the list? I have never visited a tourist area and not seen an Asian without the “stick”. Always makes me giggle. 😂🤣😂🤣

But how many did you see falling off something or getting eaten by a tiger ?

ojos azules: What sony sensor will it use?

Nikon don't make sensors though .
Design one thing , manufactures another .
Some sensors that Nikon use are sourced elsewhere though , not just Sony .
Though this camera could well be using a Sony sensor .
Even where Sony and Nikon have used the same sensor in the past , the processed results are different from the cameras .

noegd: This would be the 21st century version of the Rondinax daylight development tank.

I still use mine occasionnally to develop 120 B&W film and it amazing how well that old stuff works.

This is a more automated design .
A modern Rodinax for both 135 & 120 is available for pre order already .

(unknown member): I don't get what's so special with these shots? Get some extension tubes and do the same thing.

It doesn't matter if your using a full frame camera , APS-C or M4/3 , all modern cameras are capable of giving results like this .
Follow the links that ktjones has given below for more information .

Critical focusing is what makes the image possible , in extreamly fine steps .
That's why you see the fancy rig above to make this possible .

Regarding focus stacking , I've no experience with cameras that can do focus stacking .
If this function works with manual focus lenses like this set up , then it should work o.k .
The stacking software on your PC is fairly automatic anyway after you load the images to be stacked . Programmes like CombineZP do this and are free download .

Try it !
Life size or double life size is easy with extension tubes , at this magnification size it's very diferant with extremely thin D.O.F , that's why focus stacking with many images is required .

Look it up .

Throwback Thursday ?

I thought that was just about old obsolete cameras ?

The a900 is still my main camera !

sportyaccordy: Yonguo trying to push its luck I see....

Moral of the story: just get the STM version. $25 won't kill you.

Yonguo label their lenses Yonguo .
The counterfeiter's might have nicked a batch of Yonguo lenses to alter , but that doesn't mean that it's Yonguo committing the crime .

naththo: Counterfeit lens like these above can damage your camera! What a fool of them to try sell counterfeit just to destroy someone's camera system!?

Sounds like it could be a Nikon conspiracy to destroy Canon then !
