Walk with Godo lens

Among my homemade lens, being as if it was almost ordinary lens, Godo lens is the most remarkable lens. There was no eccentric feature like 1/2, 1/4 lens kind but two ordinary unknown origins lens put together. (yet, one of them came from my friend Gordon = hence Godo lens ) And the lens happened to produce quite normal image (if not a lots of halation) together with quite nice softness. On top of that, thanks to a Chinese helicoid ring, good convenience of close up use.

I went back to the so-called Perpetual Cherry Tree and found that the area was in a construction site. (Tree was still there and seems flowering though)

I’m not sure whether they are bamboo or reed ?
I like a natural looks quality of this macro. (Too sharp image of most of macro makes the flower looks like an animal body parts) – – – Unless the one was a forensic scientist, we may not like to see too sharp detailed flower parts.

For the cost almost nothing homemade lens, I would say, this is the good lens.

Fragmented lens for London snap (A)

Somewhat the same landscape by the “Fragmented Lens” on Nikon Z7.

It is something puzzling me ? ? ? —– Advanced image processer in the latest camera straggling with unusual images and make the image even more unnatural.

Oxford Street —> Selfridge X'mas decoration (?)

The all photos here were taken by a homemade 1/4 lens on NikonZ7.

Selfridge’s this year’s X’mas decoration was just the display of their goods.

Economical downtern reflected from uncirtainty of the Brexit etc etc might be making shy economy, hence their design were pretty economical here too.

G9 Lens

G9 Lens-002

I show you a yet another homemade lens : G9 Lens (with Nikon mount).   As a matter of fact, this lens appeared here before, in the other guise.

G9 (2)-1-A09A6026-001

Similar to G10 lens, G9 lens was a front element of the Canon’s G-series compact camera.  Before, the lens was made Nikon mount like an individual Macro lens to use on a bellows.  With an arrival of Nikon D850, I did a remake of the lens, while giving a focusing barrel.  Hopelessly fuzzy image need to work with the best camera which got the finest resolution.  😀

For G9 Lens-A09A7688

From the previous Gaudy Lens’ experience, I took a lens barrel from Olympus film camera. (Photo above) And re-mounted the lens, deep inside of the barrel.  On the Nikon mount, this homemade lens can give a focus from infinity to 1/3 close-up.  The lens optical character was almost the same to G10 lens though, G9 has 50mm focal length, instead of 60mm on G10′. (yet makes very little difference)

Sky and Rose

This was the test shot.  The softness on a dry rose wasn’t too bad.  (It’s surprise to see even such fuzzy lens can show quite a small pattern of the tree.)

Only a trouble from D850 was the size of the each photo, 20Mb causing a bit of havoc. (Still, on this blog = they are cut down to only 200Kb or so —– Why use D850 ? ? ?)   

Further shot on G9 + D850 would come soon.
