    I did a similar conversion to an Olympus 50mm lens for a focusing mount. As you have probably discovered, it takes a few dismantled lenses until you find one which can accommodate the rear lens element.


    Steve.
    Schneider states an image circle of 155mm at f=16, and the 140mm wide image needs about 150mm. The image circle is indeed covered even wide open at f=8 (if you can call it that). The truth however is, that the vignetting is awfull and forces you stop down a lot.


    I also have a number of not suitable 50s (i.e. what is left of them) in the drawer...

    My first camera built completely from scratch: naturally, it's a pinhole
    The experience was useful, and will be used once I decide to finally make a wide angle (6x12?) camera built around the Caltar 65/8 lens I have… Well, one day, perhaps. Until then, it's pinhole for me: focal length 30mm, laser cut pinhole 200 microns. Should be fairly wide: I have yet to put a roll thorugh it - just finished it this evening.

    I have put together a small website showing my camera DIY projects, including my latest toy, a roll film camera with Canon EF mount, to use the Canon TS-E 4/17 tilt shift lens on film:

    Please have a look, if you like:

    Oh I like the one of the cathedral doors and the woods (one of the 6x14's) I didn't see any Canon links.

    Why 6x14 and not 6x12 like most manufacturers?

    Thanks.

    The "Canon" is the "Kiev EF" (http://www.meinezersaegtenkameras.de/Ekiev%20ef.html), a Kiev with a Canon EF mount.

    As for 6x12 or 6x14, the plan was to use up the image circle of the Super Angulon as much as possible, which led to the 6x14 format. In hindsight this maybe wasn't a good decision, a) because of the vignetting and b) because the format sits somewhat between "just wide" and real panoramas, neither fish nor fowl.

    Oh! That looks sweet!! Make me one please!

    And isn't 6x12 the standard medium format panorama anyway? Just as 24mm x 64mm is the standard 135 format pano? Or is the medium formst 6x17 for visual reasons? I forget now... Haha all I know is scanners that scan pano film strips only accommodate for 6x12.

    My Mamiya 7 has a "true panoramic" 35mm insert that creates the 64mm wide x 24mm high image on 35mm film, that's why I assumed 6x12 was pano since its the same proportions. Or is it? I'm tired and my brain doesn't want to do the math ratio (even if I know it's simple) Gnight for now, feel free to respond with mockery... Lol

    No. 6x12 is twice as wide as it is high or a ratio of 2:1

    64x24 is just over 2.5:1
