    Bought Magic Lantern


    I bought from ebay uk one magic lanter, it came with lens, height 8,5cm, front lens diameter about 4,5cm
    Then there are this condenser lens, which diameter is about 10cm and height 4,8cm
    That would be quite nice in front of Sinar

    My math is not so good that I could calculate aperture of those lenses, so if anyone could provide me some formula for calculation, I would be very pleased.
    Everybody has photograph memory, some just do not have film

    Focal length divided by diameter of front element (glass) will give you approx. F number (eg. FL - 200mm, front element's diameter - 50mm. 200/50=F4).
