OH DEAR !

Recommended Posts

Oh Dear !  ?  is exactly the right exclamation.

Because when I had my SONY gear I paid an absolute fortune for a SONY dedicated Macro Lens...an  f 2.8-100 mm if my memory serves me correctly.

Imagine my thought when I saw these results for the first time just now.

All shot through the ..Leica Projector lens married to the focus ring of an old Russian film camera lens. All I did was to add two Extension rings...with little loss of light throuh he straight-through barrel of the Projector lens.

I am truly amazed and delighted.

A superb Macro set up fr less than £60...with the potential to add another extension ring.to gain further magnification.

Yes! Hand focusing is dodgy, but great fun.

1: BERYY RED     2: Be SHARP MK I & II       3: EIGHT LEGS         4: TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER.

Nope !  A Cub-Scout.....for a while yes.

I put it all down to the.....Make-do-and-mend....ethics of mine and previous generations.....my time as a jobbing joiner saw me being forced into lateral thinking where on the spot repairs were required.....plus, my years as a professional Toy-Maker, using almost anything to create lots of moving toys, use in schools and museums.

Added to these is an almost innate urge to experiment and to learn.....Love Life.

Wonderful pictures, great skill in the production of both equipment and final output and the use of my favorite punctuation mark (the interrobang) brilliant.
