digital: Zofia + Olympus Pen E-pm1 + Minox minotar 35mm f2.8

Two months ago my friend bought tiny Minox 35 camera . Unfortunatly test roll shown that camera shutter not working properly. After internet search i decited to convert this lens to my micro 4/3 camera.
Yesterday finally i have time time to do this. It took me 30 minutes to take lens out camera and strip from shutter blades. I used 10 mm extension tube from cctv camera for lens base. Right now I may screw lens to my c mount adapter. Lens is fully functional , aperture ring is working. I also made small modification witch allow me to focus from 10 cm to infinity.

Bellow first result : my smALL model Zofia :).

  1. Wonderful. I love the tones and the grain. Did you use the grainy film filter?
