    Another Soft Focus Lens Blog. The ShitPipe Lens.

    The blog is here.

    Take 5 minutes and enjoy, or, if you hate fuzzy lenses, best move on.

    I had fun making the pictures, and hey, I'm beginning to think that is the most important thing we can accomplish.

    I know you're tired of looking at my 39 Ford pickup.......so.......I'll consider accepting donations to purchase some other more interesting subject to focus on. I think a 55 Thunderbird would be nice.

    Another terrific find and experiment. This lens pair looks great on the portraits.

    That "lens" makes your truck look like a toy model! Neat effect. It's amazing you were able to get anything workable at all out of that mismatched pair.

    Jim, nice pic's with that hybrid lens! At your suggestion I'm waiting for a 72mm +1 diopter to mount to the front of my Voigtlander #4 Euroscop. The damn thing focuses at 46" right now and I'll see what the diopter does. Should put it at about 20". Could be a good portrait lens for the 11x14 and 8x10. Making waterhouse stops as we speak.

    Ok, this is really inspirational. I've been doing 4x5 landscape with my lovely Rodenstocks and Schneiders and everything is so ooooo pretty and snip-snap sharp and lovely and all and now...I am just jealous. Until now I kind of fancied trying an old lens one day, but your experiment made me want to just get anything out of eBay and try for the hell of it.

    Any recommendations how to best lose less than $100 on something I could try for a softy portrait?

    Thanks.

    PS. I won't quit lovely and sharp lanscape just yet.

    Love the images but reminds me of coming out from under ether anesthesia as a child. Also looks like something I remember form my 60's college days.

    Two wheels or four?

    That's one awesome lens, I really like what it did in the very first photo.
