    The wonderfully sharp radioactive lens. The radioactive thorium in the glass decays to give a warm yellow tone to the images (if you turn off AWB). The glass can be returned to neutral by exposing it to UV light, apparently, but I like the warm tones.

    Very nice. A few days I saw the video below on youtube, showing that the yellowing disappears by exposing it to a € 10 Ikea LED lamp. I'm gonna try that someday, the yellow tones in the pictures are too much for my taste.
