May 26/28, 2016.

Two lenses for testing -- the SUPER RARE Komura 200mm f/4.5 (Minolta MD Mount) and Super Komura 90-250mm f/4.5 (M42 Mount).

I managed to successfully convert the first one to Nikon mount. The latter one was also converted to Nikon mount, but due to the rear element blocking the camera mirror, I later reverted to M42 and left it as it is.

Carriedo in Sta. Cruz Manila is a nice place for photowalks because there are many people. Of course, this area also means something to me.

The first day, May 26th had some good results, but I didn't bring a tripod because I plan to go somewhere else. The videos were particularly shaky given that these legacy lenses don't have vibration reduction, and telephoto lenses are prone to that.

So I went back on the 28th for another take, this time with tripod!

Below are a few selections of what I shot. To see all, just scroll down and open the Flickr album embedded in this post. Video footage is also included. Everything is left unedited so you can see the image quality through the lens.
