Great, thanks. Cardboard is certainly much cheaper, and cheaper is good!

Here are the new tools in my collection. Images were taken after mounting rings were added, but before the hood/filter rings were epoxied onto the two largest lenses.

The whole team:




The two larger projector lenses, a Hanimar 100mm f2.8 and a Staeble-Werk Stellar 85mm f2.8:




Details of the inscription on the Kodak Projection Lens 3/4 inch f1.6...




...and on the Paillard-Bolex 20mm f1.3:




The other two lenses that aren't from Kodak bellows cameras are unidentifiable. One is probably an internal element group from a disassembled lens, the other just says LENS MADE IN JAPAN. We'll see how these work. They are now all mountable on bellows, tubes or, for the smaller lenses, reversed onto a longer primary lens. Some (maybe all?) might be duds, or I might find an unexpected gem. All were free, so I haven't lost anything if none of them produce worthwhile images.

Beautiful! Good to see you're out and about with the projector lenses again.

Hi all! This is incredibly interesting thread, and i hit a small jackpot when got hold of an old projector with Will-Wetzlar Maginon 85mm on it!
I decided to try planting it in Hoya 135mm f/2,8 body, and it went surprisingly well. Now itīs somewhat macro.

One nice detail, the namering (ring that has some weird names and strange, cryptic numbers on it) of the hoya was easily fitted to Maginon, so now it screws nicely to the donor body and makes it easy to switch the projector lenses on it.
In theory, at least, as i might, well, maybe, get more of these lenses...

Shooting with the lens reminds me of shooting with Helioses, since the light is unforgiving. Flare from wrong direction, and your shot is ruined. Little adjustement of positioning, that would make almost no difference with "real" lenses, and the shot is amazing!
Rarely learning so much is this fun!

Great images in here, specially like the Diaplan ones!

And finally got out with it!

Goes well with portraits as well, at least when subject isnīt more than 15cm tall...
