159mm F2 B&L Super Cinephor
, on Flickr
My (new to me) Bausch & Lomb 159mm F2 Super Cinephor lens. Originally intended for movie theatre projection of 35mm and 70mm motion picture films. Weighs a ton.
I call it "The Beast No.2". Now I have two Super Cinephors, 5.5 inch, and now 6.25 inch. Mounting these lenses will be a creative challenge for me. Luckily I have a metal shop in my garage.
Mucho fun ahead. F2 is plenty fast for dry plate. 1/125th in full sun (fastest shutter speed on Plaubel Makiflex Standard). Dry plate emulsions respond to UV light as well as visible light.
