Although a number of Nikon DSLRs have video recording capabilities, we understand that many of you would rather shoot still images rather than moving pictures. However, as we’ve often stumbled across some absolutely beautiful short films shot using Nikon DSLRs, we decided to put together a post featuring five of the best Nikon films.

Canon 5D Mark II mashup: K-24 aerial recon lens

We’ve featured the handywork of Jason Bognacki before when he combined his Canon 5D Mark II with a 1919 Piccolette Contessa-Nettel camera. Since then he’s done another Canon mashup; this time it’s a Canon 5D Mark II with a 7-inch f/2.5 Kodak Aero-Ektar lens attached to it removed from a K-24 aerial recon camera. These lenses were built by Kodak for aerial reconnaissance photography and most were made during World War II. There is even some dispute that these lenses are radioactive as they contain Thorium. Holy smokes.
