Outlandish lenses

Outlandish lenses is all about using adapted lenses on modern mirrorless digital cameras. You'll find articles here about my experiments with some very wierd lenses indeed (incuding some not designed to be used on a camera at all!) together with articles on some of my favourite classic manuial focus SLR lenses.

Thinking outside the box like this can be a wonderfull way to boost your creativity by allowing you to see the world in new ways. But most of all it's just a whole lot of fun!

If you haven't tried adapting old lenses to your digital mirrorless camea before start with the General notes on using adapted lenses article before diving in.
