did you manage to get the Zeiss to work?

@benfrank - it isn't a mirror lens, though i do have one of those. this is a yashica fx-3 camera body with a fixed macro lens and ring light, to be used by dentists for photographing teeth.

@wiseacre - i have film in it now, and so far, so good! i hope to have some whiskerino shots from it soon.

ah, very cool. i've got a couple old yashica cameras, a twin lens and a range finder. they made some awesome stuff.

we totally did mirror day already. WHERE WERE YOU?

just kidding. nice to see a "normal" pic from you.. though I do expect some dentistry photography later on down the line.

It's like a trick shot in pool. Knocking three balls in at once isn't nearly as exciting for the people watching as it is for the guy that did it. Nice work. Well done.

@benfrank - yea i like yashica quite a bit. i have a few of the rangefinders that i really enjoy.

@mackle - i'm not sure you want to see how far that thing will zoom in. extreme closeups of beard/teeth may be a bit unsettling.

Sat there for a bit wondering.... how is there light in that there lens? Then read the caption, then was transported back to the days when my orthodontist took pictures of my dentition - ugh.

Glad to see you're creating cool photography with what was the bane of my braces years.

Completely unexciting. You're right.

And a jerk.
