  • adapted Fujian 35mm f1.7 (cheap Chinese CCTV C-mount lens) on Olympus E-M1 soldier crab remains of a sea turtle The Fujian 35/1.7 is a lens I don't really enjoy using (helicoid has too much play) ...
  • what nigbat said checks out on my lenses. The lens is S-mount native, the little short bit that you show against the C-mount adapter is the adapter for S-mount to M-mount (proprietary system to ...
  • I have that lens and I find it rather good compared to other projection lenses. Being a triplet optical design it gives me nice bubbly bokeh in the speckled highlight. It's compact enough to carry ...
  • For years I have been using www.shipito.com warehouse in California for shipping around the world with great success. I also see they have a facility in Austria but I have  never used that one.
  • Between you and sensiblename99 you guys are killing the measurebators with their uber-sharp lens quests so capable of producing razor sharp brick wall test shots and... not much else ;-) What an ...
  • Every lens I refit is fine tuned to achieve infinity at the helicoid fully retracted so it feels like using a lens with in-built helicoid (SLR lens for example). The fine tuning is done with ...
  • this ignore the left lens (MOG Diaplan 100/2.8) but look at the macro helicoid (in this case suitable for Micro 4/3). Once you glue a M42 ring (or a M42 macro extension tube) to the back of a lens ...
  • In a world of vanilla smooth bokeh some of us are looking for a bit of spice. And just like with cooking one can use chilies to give your dish a bit of zing if used consciously while the ...
  • From this thread it transpires to me that cost of equipment is somehow of a concern with mentions of Russian lenses being affordable. I agree My question is: have you considered the cost of film, ...
  • I also procured a broken Pen D3 to harvest the lens but I could not retain control over the aperture once refitted. My results from the lens off the D3 are the same.
  • my dialog in the "save as" window for jpeg is very different and doesn't offer what you show. I will however check with my Photoshop artists at work and see what they think and what setting should ...
  • One of the best adapted lenses I have, yet so small and unassuming. The F.Zuiko 32/1.7 gives me sharp images with that hint of swirl in the bokeh in some conditions.
  • hmmm, was unaware that my setting was Adobe colors instead of sRGB. While Flickr recognizes those and displays them the way I seem them when I am editing, here they are displayed as washed out and ...
  • I no longer seek "high I.Q." in an adapted lens since nothing can beat the brilliant native M.Zuiko ones, but I often look for traits that no native lens can do: create an illusion of a dream. Petz ...
  • Thank you. The set up is typical for adapting lenses that don't have a helicoid: I glue a short M42 macro extension ring on the back of the lens ( I use modified epoxy like JB-Weld) and then, most ...
  • these two images are stunning: the subtle depth change makes them really 3D and the color contrast of cold sky against the warm foreground leaves really draws me to almost want to touch the screen ...
  • End of summer and the dragonflies are vanishing Kodak Cine 63mm f2.7
  • mine too, but not this weekend (will take its sweet time to reach Australia). After all this talking about the Cintagon 100/3.5 I spotted a Cintar 100/4.5 (for Argus C33) that also looks good and ...
  • Replied in Extender
    not sure if CS3 has an auto function for focus stacking however you probably still want to manually mask those layers or the background will be sharp. You can do it manually by importing your files ...
  • Replied in Extender
    If you want to go fancy there is the option of focus stacking where one can maintain that wonderful bokeh in the background but extend the DOF in the subject, where it matters. Of course that ...
