Item for Sale
Rare PENTAX 90 DEGREE MIRROR ADAPTER for CLANDESTINE PHOTOGRAPHY

Asking Price
125 USD

Item Location
Nova Scotia, Canada

Item Description
Now here's an item you don't see everyday, a vintage Pentax Mirror Lens!
At the front of the adapter is a dummy lens which gives the outward appearence that the photographer is shooting in a normal manner. However, the actual image being photographed is located at a 90 degree angle to the front of the camera and is relayed to the master lens through a porthole on the side of the adapter via a 45 degree reflex mirror which is housed inside of it. As the porthole also rotates on a full 360 degree arch, it not only enables the photographer to shoot subjects to the right and left, but also above and below.
Designed for the 200mm Takumar lenses; this one shows signs of use on the body, the glass and mirror is in excellent condition.
Comes with the original caps and adapter.

Well that looks mighty interesting. I wonder what other focal lengths it would work for besides the 200mm?

I've taken pics with 100mm and 135mm lenses using a 58mm to 49mm step down ring and they came out as well as with the 200mm.

Wow, couple this with some "X-Ray Specs" and you'll have quite a formidable outfit!
