blasfemy? or just plain fun....
I LOVE my SL66E, and I have 3 good lenses for it..
However, in this period of my life, I so adore the soft images one can get, using very old inexpensive lenses, so I fitted an old meniscus type landscape lens (Lancaster) in an equally old emty brass barrel..
The front of the barrel (the sun shade) fitted perfectly in the front hole of the camera, and it doesn't ruin anything in the camera..
Voila - I now have a funny looking camera, with an amazing lens in front..
can't wait to see the results..
Like a "portrait" of me: Old stuff - newer stuff, and duck tape... How analouge is that?
Can't wait to see them either! Post some if you have a few ready

"Analog is chemistry + physics, digital is physics + math, which ones did you like most?
I am quite sure, I don't need the imagon!
and I have several soft focus lenses for my LF cameras..
This one is "responsible" for this image.. but taken in 4x5"..
Blasphemy? No, the SL66 was constructed that way with just this option in mind.

Does this mod count as a low-fi system?
You could always stick a cardboard tube and pinhole on the end of it.
so here are three quick scans taken with this lens outfit.
I miscalculated the aperture, so I overexposed the film..
but still, I can see use for this..
what do you think?
