This is my home-made macro adapter.
I've used a 50 mm. objective taked out from a russian reflex camera (Zenit ET) buyed with 26 Euros few years ago.
I've made an adapter with a carton tube, fixing the objective with adhesive tape.
The objective is placed reversed on the tube to allow closer shots.
With a knife I've shaped the tube to adapt it to the bottom of the camera.
Once all is fixed to the tripod, the camera and the adapter stay firmly in place.
As an example of the results you can see my photos #185692
The photos #182633 and #181823 are also made with this system.
