    oh GOD..

    maybe I have the solution for you!

    the old Dallmeyer mescus type landscape lens is FASCINATING!!

    I by mistake took the lens element and fitted it reversed in a shutter, and look and behold...

    lovley to say the least.
    not excately like Plasticca, but VERY nice too..

    I am currently scanning some negs.
    and I'll upload some asap.

    just got another fun lens! not Plasticca, but a Dallmeyer meniscus type landscape lens. I noticed that the lens diameter is quite big, and the barrel with revolving apertures quite small (F15) so I removed the barrel and fitted the lens in a shutter.....

    can't wait to see the results on film. swirley as hell.. almost plasticca like..

    I'll keep you posted.

    Hi Gandolfi. Had my heart racing there for a minute thinking you got to it before me! Lots of lenses, lots of looks some expensive, some not. I guess the collector in my want the plasticca. Don't get me wrong, it would be used often but that is the draw to have the "real thing" as opposed to my shit pipe lens which may very well have the identical look on film for $30 bucks.

    Hi gandolfi,

    I just received a 'Brand New Old Stock' virgin B&L 10"/4.5 Unar and will play with it. It does do the same as my antique 16.5/ 5.5 B&L Unar so I guess it is a design feature for Unar. I will have to setup something and step thru the f/stops to show the differences. I will try to post them over the weekend.

    Hi Jim,

    you already have one, just use the rear cell from your Portrait Unar, EXACTLY the same effect and adjustable by f/stop.

    Not kidding.

    I had a co-worker bring in an OM-1 with a lens and some misc. other stuff and asked me if I wanted it. He was going to throw it away in the lab if I didn't want it. The camera was like new and came with the instruction manual (in German). He is from Germany originally.
