Why would you do such a thing? Good question.
I recently purchased a Fujifilm X Pro-1 camera body. It supports interchangeable lenses from Fujifilm and other brands. With a lens adapter, the possibilities and combinations are endless. So I’m going for it. I’m buying standard Fujifilm lenses, old Canon FD lenses, creating some pinhole options and apparently, lenses from Asia.
First purchase? A 25mm F/1.4 C Mount 1/2″ CCTV Lens from Hong Kong for $28.80. It even came with the necessary adapter.
It fits perfectly and requires full manual settings to make it work. Getting the focus and lighting correct is pretty hit or miss for me. I’m still getting used to it, but here are some examples of the images it creates.No filters, no editing – who needs Instagram?
Let me know what you think.
