Praktica MTL5B with homemade Petzval-style lens

Praktica MTL5B with homemade Petzval-style lens made from close-up lenses, reversing ring, homemade apertures and spacers.

 

Birmingham Flickr Meeting, Aug 8th 2010. Bournville, Birmingham.

 

I decided I'll call all my HM lenses "Lensagon" for EXIF purposes. It seemed funny at the time - a deliberately parodying name and even less imaginative than "Imagon" (almost "Imageagon") and others...

 

Images taken with this lens and other home-made "petzval type" lenses on 135 SLR, DSLR and LF can be found following the stream and/or tags, eg www.flickr.com/photos/richard314159/tags/petzvaltype/
