With An Avarage Age Of 50, The MKII & A Vest Pocket Kodak Totally Rock

Photographer Rick Nunn “documented the crap” out of it modding a 100 years old Kodak Vest Lens and fitting it on a Canon 5DmkII.

While the idea sounds complex Rick takes a very simple route, fitting the Kodak vest on a M42 extension tubes and connecting it to the camera using a cheap M42 to EF adapter.

A video describing the build along with some pictures is right after the jump.

    this is awesome. but, couldn’t you just use an extension ring with a canon mount, by passing the m42/canon adapter altogether?
