Your fastest camera is as fast as your slowest lens
No brutal chainsaw was used to cut the original pair of yashica GSNs. Only a small hacksaw was used. I think I should have some pictures of the building up process somewhere at home, so I will try to find them and post it here.
The two halves are then joined back using mostly epoxy glue with some metal bracings for additional strength. Surprisingly, the cosmetics of the joinery turn out to be better than expected, probably due to the precision manufacturing and good material of the original GSNs.
The Synchro Compur is the shutter/aperture mechanism which comes standard with the lens as well. Since the whole lens/shutter assembly is mounted inside the gutted focusing teleconverter, the distance between the lens and film can then be moved and hence achieving focus.
This SO needs to be featured on Singapore Camera Style!
A few pictures taken with YPAN in New Zealand. Film was some kind of Fuji Velvia.

You'll Never Walk Alone! - i have the best job in the world!
colour and resolutions looks really great.
I'll bet this will still look great printed to hang in a 1meter long photo frame.
everything looks upright...........the lack of any significant distortion is astounding
the images are superb!
Me too, from the sample pics it its really a very "power"paranomic effect and I was really amazed by the sharpness of the lens and the focusing mechanisum works out very nicely!
geat job on the ypan, e905591s! Must really salute you for the efforts in sawing the two GSNs and putting them back together as 1.. I hope you had a great time using ypan on the recent crossing bridges 7 too!
Fuji Velvia film is indeed nice for this purpose! my 1st DSLR was a fuji!
This is so awesome!
You added a bubble level too, nice
Endure. In enduring grow strong.
