Zeiss Ikon Cocarette (Contessa-Nettel 1926) Hacked for Canon DSLR

Well.. I’ve had this Zeiss Ikon Cocarette (Contessa-Nettel 1926) folding camera for months. I took it to the darkroom 1 or 2 times, then I figured out that I can hack it to my Canon and use it as a Lens.. WOW! Results blow my mind.

I don’t need to go to the darkroom anymore! I’ve extended the life of this folding camera to the digital world ;d

It feels just great when you change a historic piece into something new.. IT IS ALIVE!!

Results:

f/6.3 – ISO 320 – 0.8 seconds

f/6.3 – ISO 160 – 1/200

f/6.3 – ISO 160 – 1/400

f/6.3 – ISO 160 – 3.2 seconds (Cropped, Trying to shoot the steam at long exposure!)

Insanely sharp! Great details.
