Nope, it doesn't, however you did it, Colton, it worked! You must understand the angles and things, this was deliberate. No one takes good photographs consistently. It's always great and inspiring to see your view of things.

Thank you Vendee.
I suppose it won't help when I say this was composed blind, by holding the camera vertically down near the ground.
Better lucky than good, as they say.
Do you remember the golfer Gary Player's famous quote?:- "The more I practice, the luckier I get".

Those are some razor sharp results you're getting from that Auto Tak.



Whenever my sister Janine is around, she helps me by cleaning any of my old cameras that may need it. She does an amzing job, sometimes spending nearly 2 hours cleaning one camera. Here she is cleaning an Agfa Optima 500 that I've since given to another sister.

Thanks Phil and Colton. I was using the auto tak simply because it is the nearest lens I have to being contemporary with my recently serviced SV. Its a late model with a Super Tak style aperture (no need to cock it) but "back-to-front" aperture ring. As the rest of the world gets more and more automated I seem to be heading in the other direction!

Cheers, Kris.

I'd never consider using an ultra wide for portrait. But it looks like if you keep people in the middle of the frame and the camera level it does okay.

Ya, I thought about it and I figured that if I didn't get to close, and kept them away from the edge of the frame it would work.
I think it worked alright.
