Lubitel 166+ Macro

11

I want to share my little happiness, I finally found the best distance for the macro lens "tunnelvison" after I spent a few film rolls in vain.

A little story.
My friend gave me, a macro tunnel vision lens. I tried to find the best distance for a macro tunnel vision lens. It’s really hard to find the best distance, I already asked so many people but almost all of them don’t know the best distance. So I already spent many roll films in vain.

Info: the best distance using a macro tunnel vision is exact 3cm. (if less/ more than 3cm, it will out of focus). I used a Lubitel 166+ in this experiment, focus is set at in 0.8m

Before this, all my experiments failed because I was wrong. I tried at 2cm, 5cm, 15cm with focus points on my LC-A camera and had made me desperate. When I tried my Lubitel camera with the tunnel vision lens, I’m very happy because I have a second roll with results.

    Great results. I want this lens!!! @mapix published a tipster a while ago that describes how you can know what the proper focal length of any camera is before loading the film so that you won't have to waste it. I have tried this technique and it works great. Maybe this can help you next time so you won't have to go through so many rolls of film before finding the right distance:

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Film Manipulation: Kodak Slides and Bleach

    I want to share with you my experience with some slides when I was in Russia. I'm very sorry for them because I messed them up. They're just ruined and they'll never be the same! But hey, I have thousands of them, so I guess it's not a big deal after all.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
