Swirly bokeh test clip

The Helios 44-2 modification…

…is about to start. The swirly bokeh lens is partially ready.

With the first step of the mod I achieved the monster-exterme-bokeh. I had to insert some tube between the lens and the camera body, to be able to focus (a bit at least…), but some more work and modification is needed to move the closest focus point further. If I can focus on about a meter, with the extreme bokeh still exists, I’ll be satisfied!
