EXPERIMENTS IN BOKEH // 04.27.13
HELIOS 44 58MM F2.0 (WITH MODIFIED ELEMENTS)
I’ve been trying for a while to come up with a way to emulate extreme PETZVAL like bokeh on a EOS camera. The HELIOS 44 comes close. But I was looking for something more Petzval and less lensbaby. This is where I am at… somewhere in between. Very soft focus at the edges… Wild bokeh effects and swirls. Loads of lens flare, and something a bit like ghosting but its not… A wild beast. Be sure to watch the video. Trippy.

If I get enough interest maybe I take orders for these… email if interested… put “HELIOS MOD” in the subject.
