    M42 mount speed graphic ;)

    I thought this was kind of amusing. I managed to mount an M42-thread adapter onto a lens board for my speed graphic:



    But it's not quite as insane as it looks. I'm not going to be shooting the Helios-44 with it (maybe for extreme macro? probably wouldn't be very sharp though).





    This gives me an easy way to mount small lenses. Easy in the sense that I just have to drill one of the dozens of M42 body caps I have and affix the lens to it.

    Nice-and I admire the meticulous engraving on the lens board!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I'm not sure meticulous is the word for that mess.
