Canon 5D Mark II meets 1908 cinema camera lens

    | News | 27/06/2012 07:00am

    To achieve a vintage look for an upcoming photography project, Timur Civan attached a Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat hand-cranked cinema camera lens from 1908 (or possibly earlier) to his Canon 5D Mark II. As expected, the results achieved the vintage/retro photographic look as we’ve seen in similar projects. However, this particular project has yielded the most beautiful images, and unlike the others has been used to create a short video to showcase what the lens and camera combination is capable of.

    Civan says, “This lens is a piece of motion picture history, and at this point rare beyond words.”
