Yashica enlarger

Yashica enlarger 40mm f/3.5 I think they call this a sub-lens of some kind. All I have found is it was made for a Consena enlarger. It has a 50mm jam ring. I am glueing it to an old macro tube about a half inch in depth. It is real close to perfect for focus as it will be on a rail. It has 6 aperture blades and takes wonderful soft background pictures. It is part of my Still life and UV project. I have a light rack lowered to the top of what will be a soft box and lights will all be hung from the ceiling rack. I don't want anything on the floor but my tripod. I will set a picture on board later but first some information on this lens if any body knows about what would complement this sub type lens, or give me more then the 10 inchs I have to subject now.

Re: Yashica enlarger

I am told most enlarger lenses make good close up lenses, I still have 2 Nikkor lenses from my darkroom days...a 63mm and 50mm...I was reading somewhere on the net about a photographer who just attached the enlarger lens to a card board center core of a toilet roll and got some incredible results! The guy just hand held the roll to the camera body, I would love to try this but I am a bit reluctant in case dust got on the censor one day I might just take a gamble!

Re: Yashica enlarger

Booth your lenses get good grades for quality. I've read my self silly about light and lenses, I keep a list but might never find. I did that with the lengths and this lens is definitely fixed for a close film plane and sensor plane. I started hoping for at least maybe a little more room,,so I will finish this lenses and mount the camera on the rail for focus. I would really like to, or should find me some more cheaper #12 macro tubes and keep the extra darkness down to a minimum. I will use a metal epoxy to seal around the edge so I can use with attachment to body. I am very impressed with the picture points to consider. I just know what I read and can't find any information on when or where this was made. 6 aperture blades seems good but I have read about enlarger lenses that make a circle. I want this light center done but it takes time, I have some veneer wood light rolls, that I want to take my pistol collection on. I remember so many times I needed a place to take a good picture of something, and what I used wasn't up to standards. This one lens it just something I stumbled across.

Re: Yashica enlarger

The slider I bought will hold this enlarger, i bought a cheapo 12mm tube witch is perfect for a mount. I will keep my canon ones for use, no glue on them. When it is glued i will use it in a new 40" soft box. Never had one, but I want a nice ready to use area to shoot stilllife pictures with out having to clean up half the house. I have been fooling around with lights and when your having fun you seem to need more,,,but I think you all would be proud of me because I have kept my prices down an DIY all over the place. I might be able to get some pictures up with this enlarger in about 3 weeks after delivery. One other question, I removed the UV glass cover off of some lights, they or not led but you can use or replace the lights with led. They put out some UV light,,,,,,will these burn out with the glass cover removed? They are like under cabinet lights.

Re: Yashica enlarger

Well I glued the lens with some epoxy, the lens fit right in the connector side real nice, what luck. I am going to use some black silicone to make it look smoother ad the epoxy started to dry right at the end and it looks a little un tidy. The silicone will make it look good. It takes pictures real easy when I can focus, like holding it still. I have a manfroto tripod for my slider or maybe later a bellows.. Learning how to use these will be new for me. One thing is I am surprised I haven't taken a UV picture yet, I have a flash hat helps and the lens is a good shooter in the low light. Thats all I have done, ,,, Ya know it feels good to put something togather for cheap and have it work. I really am lazy just sitting here dreaming of what wonderful pictures my lens will take.

Re: Yashica enlarger

The only thing to watch out for with enlarger lenses is that many - certainly the older ones - would have been made with black and white printing in mind. Given that the papers weren't red sensitive (and not particularly green sensitive either) correction of chromatic aberration wasn't a major concern.

Re: Yashica enlarger

Finally took some time when out cleaning up blown down branches to take a few pictures. These were with my 50D. Next I break out my UV again and give it a go around. It works with the light buld I put over the flash but I haven't tried out the lens with it.

Secrets

40mm Yashica f/3.5

Thanks for the time as always your friend

Re: Yashica enlarger

Need help finding information on this and other sub-miniture enlargers. This one shoots quite fast, 1/250 of a second in the sunlight pictures above. The pictures are soft because they were lean on something hand held taken. I like these lenes but there is absolutely nothing to be found. I wont pay high dollars for these but I need info. Thanks if you can help me out. I did find one forum that talks about there ability to fit in to bigger enlargers and there you go.

Re: Yashica enlarger

Some pictures of the finished idea. 50D can use live view and the epoxy around the lens needs a finishing cover to smooth it out. It started to dry to quick, I got 5 minute, should have gotten 15 minute dry time. It is perfectly straight. It is mounted on a small slider to focus and then mount on a spade pod stuck in the ground.







Now to try this lens out with my UV, I have a black light bulb on the flash and have taken one picture, it works at about 60% light. Anyway I've been very busy but want to share my Idea for little enlargers and my 100mm macro lens.

Thanks for visiting and the comments earlier as it was a fun break from work. would love to retire.
