Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

Not a RF but I wanted to show my Pentax SMC-M 50mm F/1.4 using a custom hood to produce swirly bokeh . Some people love swirly bokeh ( including me ) . They say it's much better to use a hood on the rear element instead of the front element but that's kind of diffucult sometimes . This lens is a favourite and produces very good bokeh ( with or without the custom hood ) as some people have already shown in this thread.

I shot a fuji velvia box against a crumbled tin foil using a Pentax K100D ( APS-C sensor ) .

I'll come back with some better pictures using my custom hood.

Hi Mer, how do you mount a hood on the rear of the lense? Sorry for my ignorance.

@rogue@hans- ooh . I don't care- I like the colours and the dreaminess of it.... I can differentiate between what's in focus and what isn't, I thought the overall effect was enough to justify keeping it.

Hi,
I came across a guy in flickr modified a Schneidier 50mm lens and used with Leica M. You may want to search. I suppose it creates more swirls than others. And he has some other fast lenses modified too. Another one is Angenieux.

His nick is doo3, all of you must visit his gergous site.

With no leaves in the background, the Canon 50/1.4 can be very nice. On Neopan 400:

So fantastically plastic that one time when my girlfriend picked it up (it was hers) the middle fell out.
Being the resourceful little so-and-sos we were, we gaffer taped it back on inside out.


Photo on an R3a + 40/1.4


It was very fun for a couple of days. The photos were very hit and miss but we learnt to work it and get pretty useable results:
