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:

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: July - Freelensing Fun

    My 2015 resolution is to do 12 photography projects, one for every month. In July, I tried freelensing or unscrewing the lens from my SLR and holding it in front of the camera body. By tilting the lens slightly I was able to change the focus. For this experiment, I used my Konstruktor and Olympus OM-1.

Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
