Testing close limit of the Cameravan

Today I did a test and measured the close limit of the 600 mm Apo-Ronar. I used a helicopter helmet on a microphone stand as a “model” for this test.
At 81 cm from the front of the Cameravan it focuses on the big screen (250x125cm). Should be able to make macro portraits with this one 🙂

Here a photo of the projection made with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 with a Panasonic 7-14mm wide angle zoom, at 12mm approx.

I have made a mount for a camera just below the lens/pinhole opening, to make it easy to make photos of the projections inside the Cameravan.

Next week I’ll get the signs for the camera, probably the first camera in Norway with permission to drive along the roads.
