Medium format lens DOF adapter for camcorder

Medium format lens DOF adapter for camcorder

While I’m building a serious 35mm adapter I’m having fun messing with my medium and large format lenses.
the adapter is built in about 15 minutes, using Pringles tubes (spacer between lens and ground glass), duct tape and tracing paper(ground glass).
The lens is a Schneider Variogon 75-150: it’s a variable focal length lens (similar to a zoom) with macro.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

    so the Pringles tube gives the camcorder something to focus on in the upper
    depth?

    @dnwndls the prinles act as a spacer between the lens and the ground glass.
    lens–>pringles tube–>ground glass—> another spacer—>camcorder. I used
    that because was the only tube that can fit the huge MF lens.
