    790mm F:5.4 LF & ULF Lens Data

    I needed a way to evaluate the bellows draw and image circle for a ULF lens I've been concocting.

    By commandeering my wife's sewing room, I blacked out the windows, cut a hole in a blackout that looked out over my back yard, and ...presto... a camera obscura. I rigged up a 4'x6' white sheet of plywood on a tripod to focus the image and measure bellows draw and image circle.

    Here 's a data sheet covering the image circle, bellows draw, and effective apertures at various focusing distances. Notice that it projects a 1425mm (56") diameter circle at infinity, and a circle well over 1830mm (72") !!! when focused at 3 meters (10'). The folks shooting huge wet plate and paper negative portraits should have fun with this lens.

    More later...

    You are a big tease! Now I want to make my van into a camera, or maybe make one for the roof rack.

    When will "Cet obscur objet du désir" be available?

    Um, Reinhold, aren't you acquainted with arithmetic? The theory's well-known and well-validated, you don't have to measure (if the focal length is what you think it is), you can calculate extension.

    Dan... Shhhhhh, you'll blow my cover. Besides, I find it comforting to verify things with physical involvement

    Jim... Just a few small details to work out. Maybe the unveiling will be this weekend.
    So that you can prepare your lensboards, here's a drawing...

    Reinhold - when you get round to making more complex lenses, get in touch.
    I can supply spherometer measurements etc. for the Darlot (et alia.) Objectif d'Artist - 3 +ve lenses and the -ve lens. All simple lenses.
