Pentax Q DIY Toy Lens with Macro

I had read a lot of complaints about that the images Pentax toy lenses produce aren't toy like enough for the Q. So what could I do about it?

I had a 35mm Delta lens that I couldn't sell with a clean conscious, it was too bad, so It got slaughtered a while ago and out popped lens after lens and suddenly a rigid group of lenses. Today I tested if it fitted inside a toilet roll (normal?) and it was almost form-fitted!

Some cut-cut and tape-tape later:

You simply focus by pulling the inner tube in or out, very little movement required!











And how do the pics look like? Toyish enough?














Holga, you can't beat it!

VisualDarkness, you are on a roll with these diy lenses. Definetly adding to the Q fun factor. I like it. My clunker lenses are getting a little nervous about now.

thanks
