  1. Thanks! I will try to get my hands on a Fujinon and test it.   best, Tim
  2. Hi, I recently got myself a Yashica Scope and I am experimenting at the moment with various taking lenses. I found that the Zeiss Tessar 50/3.5 works quite well and it makes for an incredibly small setup: (The Yashica Scope on an adapter ring on the Tessar 50/3.5 on an Exakta adapter on a NEX 5n - I wrote more on that setup here.)   Has anyone other good suggestions on taking lenses and ways to mount this thing (it seems that the thread is 30m but with a funky spacing - definitely not the one found on filters...)   best, Tim

    Kiptar 2x

    Thanks! I still don't know if a clamp will help me much since the Kiptar is so freaking big... T.

    Kiptar 2x

    I thought I share my rough test here: Isco anamorphic Kiptar 2x on a Zeiss Biotar 58/2 on a t2i. There is slight vignetting but it is quite o.k. if cropped to 3:1. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn9iua0a-a4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn9iua0a-a4[/url] I later found that the 2x is more like a 1.8:1 (at least the way I mounted it: [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tim-h/6906822688/]http://www.flickr.com/photos/tim-h/6906822688/[/url] Focusing is a pain (especially with this mount... :) ) but I knew that beforehand... any hints on how to do a better mount are very welcome. Also, I know,  I should get myself some nd filters. Tim
