Vortoscope (Sort Of)
The vortoscope is an optical attachment for cameras which is similar to a kaleidoscope. I want to try to experiment with one of these, so I decided to build a copy of the Leica universal polariser part that attaches to the lenses on the front of my M8.
The attachment is a circular ring that attaches to adapters that screw on to the front of each lens.
The basic ring:
I drilled some holes that will be used to mount various front arrangements.
The first front attachment is a 3d printed holder for a prism from an old pair of binoculars I dismantled years ago.
The thumbscrews are used to attach this assembly to the lens adapter disks. Using different 3D printed adapters I should be able to attach various different optical adjusters...
