102-Year-Old Lens to Create Modern/Vintage Photos

[via PetaPixel]: "Photographer Timur Civan had a project that required vintage-looking photographs.  Originally planning to shoot the project on a 4×5 large format camera, he abandoned that route after calculating the cost for equipment and processing.  His lens technician friend then discovered a 1908 Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat hand-cranked lens in a box of spare parts, and spent 6 hours helping him make the lens fit on an EF mount for Civan’s 5D Mark II."




Here are some of the images taken straight from Civan's Canon 5D Mark II (no post-editing)...very cool!!

This is absolutely brilliant. Another lens hack I'll have to try someday!
