A flawed but fun lens.
did it come out of the factory like that?
great colours ... Boston (MA) or Boston (Lincs) ?
Is that the Fujinon-TV HF35HA for 1/2"?
I have a Fujinon-TV CF35 for 1" that I'm adapting to m4/3 and I'm counting on it to be much sharper off the center than that. I have the Fujinon-TV CF25B adapted for m4/3 and it's a beautiful lens with full coverage and sharp corners.
Ha! I had the wrong lens name! It's Fujian (I'm sure a cheap Chinese knock-off). Sorry for the confusion! About $30. I've corrected it in the title.
I'm sure it all makes sense now but yes, that's the IQ straight from the box, lol.
HA! I thought 'Fujian' when I first saw the photos and then I double checked your post title because I thought I mis-read it!
Maybe using 4/3 proportion would help with this lens?
I'm thinking of getting one of these too - have you used it for video yet?
Depends on what you want. 1:1 aspect ratio also "helps," but I use this lens for a "retro" or "dreamy" kind of effect anyway, so I'm good with it.
I think I did use it for video. It's exactly what you would expect, lol.
I reckon it looks really good. Your pics are good examples.
I saw some on another forum too that were really really quite good too.
Come to think of it, I think they were 1:1 square format.
I asked about video because it looks like it's small, light and easy to use - and being a "TV" lens I thought it would be nice and smooth to operate.
Anyway, I've just ordered one with C mount adapter so I'll see for myself in a couple of weeks...
Good point! The aperture is constant -- no clicks. Nice and smooth. The focus is also smooth. Tiny little thing, too.
You showed us some great image examples, thanks !!!
And I also ordered this lens a few hours ago + a C-mount adapter, at that cheap price, it's definitely worth to try for fun :tongue:
One quick comment -- the lens lacks in contrast, so boost it up in post processing. Most of these shots were processed in Lightroom, where I boosted Contrast and raised the blacks, and a tweak of targeted color saturation to make some of the fall colors pop. Also, some clarity increase, too.
Here's a couple more shots, if you are interested in this lens.
some more pictures from this tiny lens
1. it's cheap around $ 35 - 40 include shipping
2. it's soft f 1.7 very soft, f2 soft, f2.8 OK, f4 good
3. small image circle, so it's only sharp in the very center of image ,
stopping down is little better
4. it's easy to flare
5. simple structure
Tamrong, thanks for your sample photos and comments on the lens, I can't wait to get my hands on the one I ordered :smile:
Autumn morning mist with the Fujian lens.
Contrast and Clarity adjusted in LR3, along with selective saturation.
