Lenses Lensed by Lenses - The Super Takumar

in photography •  5 months ago

The first of a series of infographics I'm going to periodically make on the channel about vintage lenses. First up is my Super Takumar, perhaps my favorite 50mm vintage lens that I own.

It's one of the best 50mm vintage lenses out there for the price and I think everyone should try shooting with them. They're light, super compact, sharp when closed down a touch, and they create very pleasing images. Best of all, they're fun to use and won't break the bank!

Beautifully made video my friend, and very informative. I wish I had an adapter and facility to use vintage lenses. I guess there's an EF adapter out there somewhere!!


Thank you! It was a lot of fun to edit an I want to start on the next lens really soon. The M42 to EF adapters cost about $10 on Amazon (https://amzn.to/2lWYiRB) and the lens is about $70 on eBay if you're willing to take a risk on a 40 year old lens. Not that bad of a price. ;)


Awesome, thanks for the link :)
I don't mind that kind of risk if it gives a the stuff I shoot a slightly different angle, so to speak

@distantsignal are you on discord by any chance? Had an idea in mind and would love to chat with you about it. It's time to take #steemfilm to the surface :D Since this was your original idea, we need some of your feedback on things. Please let me know...


I am on discord. Which groups do you belong to? Or can we just contact each other directly? I'm not an expert at it. I mostly use it for the Minnow Support group. I'm happy to give feedback. I live in California, USA. Where do you live? Gotta work out that time difference if there is one. :)
