Taking Pictures With the 100-Year-Old Lens (10 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       28 Mar 2012       15103       7

Photos taken through the lens of the Piccolette Contessa-Nettel folding camera from 1926 attached to the modern Canon 5D SLR. The Zeiss lens, which is almost 100-year-old, is still capable of making sharp images, though the lack of coating produces strong lens flare under back and lateral lightning.

That's cool. Zeiss lenses are still the best.

seems kind if pointless if those results are typical. working with film is expensive and wasteful, and there are other ways to get effects and tones like those working with modern cameras.

"working with film is expensive and wasteful" you need to learn/read more about photography.

and what would i learn? that chemical baths aren't needed to develop? that rolls of specially-treated paper aren't necessary as a medium? that somehow oldschool photography is more efficient materials-wise than digital photography?

Like an old nokia's camera? Hipster must be running out of trendy ways to use cameras.
