This is the training centre aka outtakes thread of Day Prime 2021.
Maybe there are more people like me who want to get the feel of a lens (again) and experiment a bit.

Day Prime is a great challenge but there is a limited time slot for each FL. You have to be there on that day/in that week, or wait another year ...

This thread lets you post on other days too. And lets you post shots that you don't want to post in the main photo thread.

And here is a link to the main day prime thread for 2021

Comments are allowed and even encouraged, both in the main thread as well as here . There is no separate "talk thread" for day prime, like with the prime months or week 50.

Test shot with the newly fabricated Rikenon 1:2.8 f=43 mm, the fixed lens of the Ricoh 126-C rangefinder. Cheap, little character, but reasonable sharp. 126 film is for 28x28 frames but the lens covers the 35 mm sensor.

I scored a MIR 1B 37/2.8 in M42 mount. It came in a plastic "see through" case together with what seems an original UV filter as well as the original "manual" in cyrillic script. On my M42 helicoid adapter it doesn't get further than ~5 meter, but on my "simple" M42 adapter it goes nicely to infinity. Very strange, all my other M42 lenses work fine (until infinity) on either adapter.

It arrived one day late to be used for this years' day prime, so my test shots will have to go in the outtakes. Maybe I'll use it for April foolishness or oktoberfest to get to know it better, but the first impressions are not bad.

A7ii + Mir 1B 37/2.8 "Grand Prix Bruxelles 1958", all at f2.8

To demonstrate that aperture is still working after the transplant of the Voigtlander Color Lanthar 2.8/50mm

I have been looking for a day 56 lens for a long time. Yes, there is the 56 Lensbaby Velvet but it is expensive and there is LOMO OKC 1-56-1 3/56 mm that is semi-expensive and slow. Eventually found a Rodenstock 56 f/1.3 lens. It was described as projection lens, which is fair as it has an aperture. But not a lens for visible light I think. Stopping down improves the center but does not do a lot for the blurry edges. Easily glued onto an M52 threaded ring and gives infinity focus using a M52 to M42 helicoid.

Rodenstock 56 f/1.3 stopped down to f/4 (based on exposure, there is no scale)


Rodenstock 56 f/1.3 at f/1.3


The images look like my Helios 44 with inverted front lens element.

That's what I thought too Paul, especially the funky second one wide open.

ТРИПЛЕТ 2.8/78 (Triplet 2.8/78) is a russian projection lens, obviously with a 3-element design. I bought it for a whopping 1 euro. The previous owner tinkered with it, because it behaves as a lens with a reversed element, but I like it as it is. And it is a 78mmm lens, if you fancy odd focal lengths (is the pope a catholic? ). I opened it (it unscrews without tools) and found the middle element reversed. More shots with the lens in normal operation to follow. All images on A7iii

78.6: Enjoying spring

Triplet 2.8/78 does look quite different on the outside than Fred's Triplet 2.8/75. I wonder however if it is optically the same. My Triplet has russian markings, no manufacturer name or lens number.

Looking at Ebay offers, there are plenty of appearences of (Russian) f2,8 triplets in 75, 78 and 150mm. Don't know about thier optical design though.
Your's was full of character with the reversed element Paul.

ТРИПЛЕТ 2.8/78 (Triplet 2.8/78) middle element found reversed and I put it back. Less character but more realistic rendering. All on A7iii.

78.8: Magnoliamania


78.9: Magnoliamania

Couldn't find a training thread for April Foolishness, so I'll put these here if that's OK. Taken yesterday on Day 90 (31/3), first shots with a Sony (and in colour) for a while and with a lens I've barely used.
