Discussion in 'Adapted Lens Sample Image Showcase' started by chicks, Mar 25, 2012.
Adapted this thrift store Argus C3 lens with some electrical conduit parts. Fun lens!
I like the softness of the image, very nice, thanks!
I have one! Adapted into Nikon S-Mount.
On the EP-2 using an Amedeo Adapter:
Full-frame, on the Leica M9.
Well- Argus is not coming out with a full-frame Digital...
Brought this little guy out for some exercise. It's always worthwhile...
Do you have photos of the lens and how you fashioned the adapter?
Simplest DIY adapter ever. A C-mount adapter, a short length of PVC electrical conduit coupler (3"? I forget, but a snap-tight fit in the adapter), and a conduit nut. Slightly enlarge the smaller hole in the nut until the Cintar's threads cut themselves matching threads in the PVC. Cut the coupler short, and sand flat 'til the lens focuses to infinity. Apply glue - can't remember what I used but PVC is notoriously hard to glue. Could use the PVC solvent glue, but it's messy...
Chicks that is a sweet adaptation!
My adaption without using tape, glue, cutting, twisting, etc. Just screws. Downside of course is no real way to focus except stack or unstack the series 6 retainers. (more info: https://www.mu-43.com/f40/rigged-argus-50-3-5-cintar-c3-e-p3-34272/ )
what it looks like:
What it gets with "2 Ring" (meaning base ring in the t-mount adapter, then another retaining ring, the lens, and then the locking ring on front).
Some "3 ring" samples (1.5 foot or so focus distance)
I intend to get some outdoor shots today.
An outside test, "3 ring" config (1.5 ft focusing). F/4 ISO 200.
And with the "2 ring" configuration at f/5.6.
