How to Make a Reverse Globular Lens

I love Lenses …. i mean i am obsessed with them, but i also like weird stuff, so naturally i mixed the two and wanted to experiment.

Why just focusing on the ultra expensive electronic lenses when you can do incredible things with just old glass …

the glass is the key to image beauty, not the internal motors.

I am happy to announce the launch of a new web-serie about lens test  ” The Weird Lens Challenge “… but not any kind of lens, we will focus only on the weird ones , the old, the crazy ones that you can mount on a mirrorless camera.

For this episode we will modify a Mir-1B russian lens, to make a reverse Globular Lens.
