Shooting a Video With a 107-Year-Old World War 1 Lens

From Mathieu Sterm:

This lens spent 100 years in the dark, the last thing it captured must have been the horrors of World War I … I think it was time to use it for something more light and positive.

I took this Kodak Vest Pocket camera lens with me for a short trip to Vienna (Austria) to shoot some test footage.

I must say I was pretty amazed by the sharpness and the quality of the image I saw on my screen. It was mounted using m42 hélicoïdal adapter + M42 to C mount adapter + rubber bands from and old bike tire
