Homemade lenses are all the rage

Making your own lenses is all the rage these days, and we are all for that particular flavour of fun.

Mark Tucker makes a lens out of a Plunger, simultaneously creating what he claims is the ugliest camera in the world. MKAZ is a prolific lens maker who has photo essays and information about no less than 7 lenses he has made himself. Orbit 1 features a compact bellows-style lens which can also be used as a tilt/shift lens, and Chromasia takes it a step further, making an actual Tilt/Shift lens himself. Oh, and there’s of course our very own Pringles macro lens, too.

Bravo, guys, keep them coming!
