Some initial experiments with M42 bellows and Helios lens;

Part of Dyxum reply box

Plain white screen or Dyxum reply box


100%crop of above


Apart from showing the need for a sensor clean and my need to improve focusing and exposure, would these be considered suitable subjects for testing?

@Dorset Mike, I was surprised when I saw your post/pics loading - I made the same sample images from the same subject (dyxum page) last year :D

Thanks guy. Well, yes, DoF in case of combined lens is a problem. I'm a bit fed up with all this reversinhg stuff - I need REAL macro lens! and some tubes, or close-up adapters. Recently I've seen great macro shots taken with copact camera with close-up lens... I'm really surprised with IQ and DoF ( not mentioning perfect light )...

@ Dorset Mike - well, I think that you should just start taking photos of insects/plants with this set :D

@Napo - great shot again, I'd try to make it more symatrical and putting it to square frame. Also flower in upper left part of photo disturbs a bit. But you achieved great DoF ;-)

Danudan I did like your shot a lot and I know DOF ain't easy to achieve with your combo, but this little pall you shoot is kind a "cute" and I thought it would be nice to see more of him :-)

Dzenkuje for your comments :-)
