How To Use A 100 Year Old Lens On A Mirrorless Camera

I really like this and thought you might enjoy it as well.

In this cool little project they remove the front lens from a 105 year old folding camera. Then they attach it to an M42 lens mount. Then they put that on an M42 bellows which now allows them to focus the lens.

Then that is mounted on a Sony A7II. Definitely pretty cool and, the images come out surprisingly well.
