La Sardina Likes it Close-up

14

We all know that the Sardina loves to come close to capture the lomographers desire. With it's 22mm wide angle lens, you can come as close as 0.6 m. But what if you wanna go closer??

In fact it’s a very easy tipster. I already tried out the Sprocket Rocket close up tipster by mephisto19 by using the Diana 55mm Close-up lens part on the Sprocket Rocket.

You need:

Once I had the Sardina in my hands, I tried to see if the close up part of this Diana lens couldn’t fit on the Sardina lens. It doesn’t fit excatly so you can’t hold it with your hand, but with some electrical tape, you can easily fix the close up lens on the Sardina lens.

Then I needed to find out the right focus distance. The close up lens works close to 15 cm with the Diana and 10 cm with the Sprocket Rocket. So I presumed it was something like that as well for the Sardina. I used a cigarette paper, put the Sardina on “B” and hold it in front of a lamp to see the right focus on the cigarette paper. I measured the distance the most precisely I could and found out that it was 12 cm. I cut a straw at 12 cm to have a measuring tool while I shot the pictures.

Try it out! :)
