High Speed Xray Lens for Soft Focus Macro

Today about using a very special, f0.75/50mm high speed lens from an old Xray machine on a modern DSLR. I designed and had made a focusing mount for that lens, but focusing range is quite limited to macro only, due to the very short register length.

Due to its extremely shallow Depth of Field (DOF) and lacking color correction, it produces some very dreamy images.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
