The grip is a HorusBennu
grip attached to a Manfrotto 200PL style quick
release plate, a special plate made by HorusBennu for their grips. It
allows you to use the camera, with the grip attached, on a Manfrotto
RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter.
Sample pictures: ISO 320.
You may click
on the sample image (except closest focus) for full resolution. The
full resolution image opens in a new window, so you can keep it open
for comparison. Focus is on the
dish to the right of the big solar panel near the center of the photo.
Closest focus is 85cm from
edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on
the program wheel of the camera.
This is a very sought after and often quite expensive lens for Paxette
cameras, it has a 15 blades iris and it's
luminous. Wide open it's (too)
soft to blurred, at F 4 it's o.k. in the center, but it stays somewhat
blurred towards the
edges. At F 16 there's a hint of
close focussing capablities. It is very small and extremely
lightweight, particularly for a F 2 lens. A lens which offers 1 stop
more than standard. As I got mine for cheap, attached to a Paxette
camera, I'm fine with it. But I would definitely be deceived, if I had
payed a lot of money for it.
The M39 Paxette Mount is
the same thread as ordinary M39 (Leica), but
a different flange focal distance. Please refer to the Paxette
