Review Triplet Triplet 2.8 / 78

Review Triplet Triplet 2.8 / 78

It is strange why the name of the lens contains two times Triplet Triplet, Cyrillic and Latin. The lens has already come to me in a converted state, with the possibility of using it on Nikon cameras. In this case, there is the possibility of focusing to infinity. How the lens looked in the beginning and how to convert it for use - you can read here.

The lens of the lens is brightened, and the lens itself has a rigidly fixed lens hood. By the logo of the lens, you can determine that my Triplet 2.8 / 78 was manufactured at the Minsk Mechanical Plant. S.I. Vavilova.

Sample Photos

The copy from the review is most likely broken, as it creates an image that is not characteristic of a triplet.

More unusual pictures from a broken triplet:

Bokeh lens. Strong coma on face

    Such a Beast)

    with pigeons, of course, it's interesting, but "it's better to shoot with a tin can"

  • Igor

    Yeah, do not compare with Glavuchtehprom. I support ANONYMO.

  • Ivan

    On the Internet I met more pictures from it, they seemed to me better than from my copy, maybe I got a not entirely successful one, or maybe after my “surgical” intervention something went wrong, although there seemed to be nothing - three lenses and partitions.

    But the figure with Triplet 2,8 / 100 seemed to me more interesting, although the bokeh is as dirty as this one.

    • Felix

      the average negative lens is on the wrong side after assembly.

  • Gene jb

    Arkady, you did not highlight the words “spherical aberration” and “coma” as references. What kind of animals are these….
    And the photos are somewhat similar to a monocle. Maybe just a rework failed?

    • Gene jb

      I remember I had a Viliya-Auto device with a triplet, so I liked everything about it ...

      • Ivan

        Triplet triplet discord. This lens is from a slide projector, and there were still for cameras, there the aperture began at 4.

        Trioplan 2,8 / 100 also has a triplet scheme, but its cost is 150 bucks. Apparently there is something to pay for, plus there is an iris diaphragm.

  • anonym

    In my childhood I had a scale camera "Orion EE". It was equipped with a fixed Triplet lens, albeit with a different focal length, 40 mm. And something in this article tells me why I didn't manage to “make friends” with my camera down, everything was indistinct and blurred in the pictures :-)
    Although, of course, it's not a fact that that lens was the same, um, unusual ...

  • Ivan

    I researched the topic of Triplets on the network, and I can’t resist not to quote one comment that explains a lot:

    “Actually, the triplet entered the world of photography as“ Cook's portrait lens ”. And the triplets cost just fantastic money before the First World War. And rightly so. The point is that the triplet has very few correction parameters. Therefore, the unfortunate choice of one of them cannot be compensated for by the selection of the other. hence. it must be designed with the utmost care, and for the same reason it must be assembled just as carefully. It is hard to imagine how conscientiously old German triplets were made - for example, each lens was provided with a separate eccentric frame, allowing this lens to be centered independently of the others ... A well-designed and carefully assembled triplet is a first-class lens. ”

    From this it can be understood that the quality of the design and assembly of such a circuit has a critical role.

  • nukemall

    The review is simply incorrect, because the lens is technically defective. He has a misalignment of the lenses, and they are located, it seems, in the wrong order or the spacers are confused.
    You see in circles that are in the bokeh, lighter squiggles? This is a sign of strong bias and / or tilt of the lenses.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      In the review, I added information that the lens is most likely damaged. If you have the opportunity to provide the same well-working instance, please do so.

  • Senya

    I liked the review, I even wanted myself such a lens

  • Paul

    Interesting bokeh))

  • Egor

    And why no one guesses what is in the picture with the caption “Lens drawing. Guess which objects are out of focus ”? Will I make my guess that these are luminous garlands, or white flowers on the ground?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      No. This is asphalt, but what's on the asphalt?

      • Nikita

        Are those pigeons on the pavement?

        • Arkady Shapoval

          no

  • Alexey

    Maybe dew drops?

  • nestor50

    A simple diaphragm would have greatly helped this Triplet. Few lenses at 2,8 show good sharpness. So I would use the adapter EOS-NEX with a diaphragm which. Or cut rings with holes 4, 5,6 8 and attach to the back of the Triplet.

    • Eugene

      On my Viliya, diaphragms 8 and 11 did not greatly improve the situation.

    • Stalker

      It is screwed in instead of the filter (by pre-cutting the lens body and cutting the thread into 52) into the Helios 44M or 44M-4 body gutted from the lenses using the Helius diaphragm. Set to infinity. Everything works great!

  • nestor50

    Maybe Nukemall will take this Triplet apart, blacken the ends of the lenses and align the troches. Then it would be to look at what the lens is capable of. Is it really much worse than the T-43 and T-22?

  • Eugene

    Yes, apparently, such an image is the calling card of the Triplets. My scaled camera "Viliya" with a "Triplet" lens takes about the same thing :)

  • слава

    It would be interesting to know about a fellow triplet 5 2.8 \ 100. I have such a one and I suppose to turn it into a monocle.

  • Damir

    If the lens is initially not damaged, then it works like a normal "normal" without special effects)) minimum distance 70cm. Here's everything except the lens itself, shot with a 78 triplet. http://yadi.sk/d/zlGRpSODJQ3me

  • Yuri Gomel

    The lens is clearly incorrectly assembled ..! Perhaps one of the lenses inside is upside down. Plus violation of the optical axis of the entire system after assembly by someone else's curved handles. (This is not about you, Arkady ...) This is clearly confirmed by the last two pictures ...
    Here are normal photos from a normal Triplet
    http://proofbook.livejournal.com/198853.html

  • Stalker

    The lens is definitely faulty .. I planted exactly the same on the body of Helios 44M. I cut a thread on the body before cutting it off .. It is screwed in instead of a filter. Perfectly tuned to infinity. You can shoot both landscape and portraits. Aperture is used from Helius. Good sharpness and good bokeh ( for an amateur of course). In the same way, I remade Triplet 5 2,8 100 and I constantly use them, although in bulk and other lenses ...

  • anonym

    I have the impression that the rear component is reversed. During my time I had a Zeiss Ikon 9x12 with interchangeable native optics, there is a 160 mm triplet in Compura. So when I had a desire to build something interesting with a portrait (at that time - the end of the 60s), I just turned its rear component over and got exactly this type of drawing. True, then I returned everything back to the tags :)

  • anonym

    I observed the same effect when I put the middle (negative) lens on the wrong side.

  • anonym

    The first test photo is the most typical, textbook example of one of the lenses being installed incorrectly, turned upside down. Most often it is either front or back.

  • Amara

    Triplets 69-3 4/40 from “Viliya” and from “Viliya-Auto” on Sony NEX
    show good results.

  • Amara

    Here are some of my photos on Avito and Angara.net -

    On Nexes, lenses are mounted through a makeshift adapter
    glued from a bayonet cap and a cap from shoe polish.

  • Amara

    Yes, I forgot to sign - the flange of the T-69 = 28,8 mm.

    • Arthur

      How did you measure the working distance? After all, it is not removable, there is no bayonet mount. 28,8mm from the lens in the infinity position, or from the end of the shot lens?
