My friend has been talking about this for awhile and I'm not sure whether it would work or not. He wants to take an 8x10 camera and multiple lenses on the front of the camera, probably enlarger lenses or whatever we could find lying around. Either of the same focal length or with different focal lengths. My question is what this would look like and whether someone has tried it before, you'd get overlapping images but I'm not sure what would happen at the overlap. It'd be great to get very wide coverage on an 8x10 plate or negative.
We were also discussing tilting each lens independently to achieve funky focal plane effects you couldn't get with a standard single lens.
Has anyone tried something similar?
