Yes, I know ... there has been an awful lot of color around here lately. That's because I am continuing with the testing of my FrankenKamera IV and addressing the various (and fortunately, minor) issues that always seem to turn up whenever a new device is first being put into service. And this testing is best done during the daytime, since it isn't easy to work on the camera in the dark and my shop facilities, such as they are, consist of an improvised workbench (more of a workstand, really) located in a dimly lit corner of my garage. As such, the whole R&D process works much better during the day and with the garage door open.

That notwithstanding, to my eyes, this photo clearly shows the principal reason why I've invested so much time, effort, and expense into this project. Which is the almost palpable sense of dimensionality the Zeiss-designed lenses I've chosen to use are capable of recreating. This is not quite as apparent in the small photo above, but if you click on the link below to view the larger, higher-resolution version, I believe this somewhat unique effect is plainly visible. Try it and see for yourself!
