View Full Version : Radioptican Lens

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to use a radioptican lens at all on their camera? I've been researching old lenses, and then realized I have an old radioptican just sitting around. I saw an image of someone who cut up a mirrorscope to work, but I didn't see any images that it produced. I assume it'd have to cut up the object since the lens slides to focus? Guess I could try it out on some foam board first?

Anywho, just wanted to ask and see.

It should work fine, but expect a soft image. You can see some of Jim Galli's Mirroscope images here:
