Half Frame on Full Frame

Have you ever asked yourselves what would it like to change lenses from different type cameras? The answer is here!

I have 2 cameras, Zenith 3M and BeLomo Chaika 2. The former is a full frame camera and the latter is a half frame camera. During their repair, I was strucked with an idea: What would happen if I change the default Zenith lens with my BeLomo’s? You’ll get a macro monster machine, focus scale doesn’t work, but it’s worth it!

Check out the results in the gallery :)
