120 Year Old Lens with AutoFocus!

Mathieu Stern created this video showing the abbreviated teardown of a 120 year old folding camera. From there he harvested the lens and began construction of a Frankenlens, one part 120 year old lens the rest new parts and the resulting autofocus hybrid remains mysterious with the quick video cuts. While the video is lacking true comparison photos (charts, color sample photos, etc…) for detailed analysis and slower steps of the build to investigate the true inner workings of his setup the resulting photos are sharp, clean and great colors.
