Lubitel 166+ Macro

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.

Thank you for reading my article!

    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:
