DST lens

Posted in Zen by yoshizen on January 9, 2021

This lens seemed to come from somewhere a kind of compact digital camera. (but, I don’t remember which camera) —– I stripped out many cameras, though I haven’t necessarily consummated with them = I might only need to take other parts. So, quite a few lenses left behind in the junk box were never tested. This lens unit had an electric shutter / iris, focus drive and its gear train though, the optics itself was made with only three lenses.

Yet still, as the lens was designed for the main imaging lens, it’s got a certain level of quality = better than the CROM lens or CiN-Mag lens. (Size of the image was the equivalent of 24 mm on 35 mm camera though, it doesn’t cover 35 full frame — good image circle may even be smaller than 4 / 3 camera lens and the image distortion was looks almost like a fish-eye lens —– big distortion hence this lens was called DST ) šŸ˜€

      Thank you Bernhard.
      Thanks to the Chinese adapter, parts, etc DIY is getting easier now, still lots of works may needed. And, on the end of the day, people would say So, what = to make a convincing worthwhile photo may need more work. šŸ˜€
