Experiments

By HobbitDave
Trying a 1960s c mount cine camera lens on micro 4/3 Lumix G2, with an adapter which is about a fiver off eagerbay.
The c mount lens is an Angenieux 25mm f1.4, which so far seems to behave well. No flash used here, lens wide open. Old lenses on digital cameras have fascinated me for years.
This is a first on 4/3 camera, hopefully will try some outdoor pics soon. Hope you like the first experiment 🐿

Ahhh. We are in the same club. Sombody said I was a member odf the clutter club. Some of this older glass can be very interesting to use for warmth and vintage effects like dark surround wide open. TG
