After I had sold my 5D and spent almost a year, relying only on the iPhone’s 6 and 5C camera.. I thought of getting a Fujifilm and give it a try!
Can you think of a better combination?
My new toy X-E2 mounted to my lovely Carl Zeiss.
So, I’ll start using it and testing it.. so far so good, I LOVE IT! Small size, very light and the battery is good too!
So, let’s hope I’d experiement the camera more.. and perhaps, post some useful tips too.
Happy shooting! :)
It’s been awhile since my last Lens Hack project, here I’m gonna show you my latest hack with (of course) some Photo samples of the lens (Never touched, SOOC).
I bought this old lens from ebay, out of curiosity for testing it and experimenting..
So, let’s start..
(Using Helios 44M-4 with Canon 5D classic)
The Mount + Bellows
(I went to a carpenter and asked him to create the Adapter, it is not Screw-type, just a “push the element” in type)
(SOOC, never cropped never touched, click on the image to enlarge)
f4.5, wide open
This lens hack has been listed on EBAY:

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!!
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.
