Digital Camera

Roughly looking at state explanation only seems to have made a bid,that? Something stocky? I noticed it was during payment.

Lens information

Helios 44-2 F2.0 58mm M42 BelOMO(MMZ)

When Helios was mass-produced, Russia was a Soviet Union, so it should have made the same lens at a factory with various names as communism.
Nevertheless, when Helios was made this time it was about to go to the end of the Soviet Union, I think that each factory was already made by each.

Helios 44M ~~, Helios 44 ~~, There are many things with numbers behind. on the eBay.


One of those, Helios 44-2 this time, although the appearance is different, the inside is almost same, it has become somewhat simplified and easy to handle.
I repair, so I understand well.

Is that the same as before as well?

Today’s agenda

– Popular Russian lens Helios 44-2, probably exploring the power of the final version.

Bokeh, color, etc


As Helios’ late version Very sharp like Helios 44M.
I think swirly bokeh feels weaker than general Helios 44-2 because of its sharp feeling.


However, looking at the swirly bokeh condition of round bokeh, I think that it is not different from the older version of Helios.


Although the coating is somewhat better, the saturation feel like Russian lens does not change.


To take flowers from directly above, I’m getting choosing to try swirly bokeh.


Bokeh is staggering to the back and it is rich and it feels nice.
 

I shoot in open squeeze shade with difference in brightness.
This is also a depiction that Helios seems like plenty of Russian white.


It is swirly bokeh with a blurry bokeh that behind is burning.
The sense of two-wire bokeh of the wire fence is also amazing. Whether the content has not changed at all.


Although Sharp seems to be a bit high, I think that it is easy to use.

Sharp, resolution


It is very delicate.
The charm of Russian lenses is still this soft expression.


Minimum distance 50cm I got to the limit.
It seems that the feather stops even if the shutter speed is 1/1000. It’s amazing speed.


The feeling of sharpness is somewhat reduced by the mirror itself of the motorcycle, but it is my favorite contrast feeling.


Sharp definitely comes out from the former type.
Whether it saturates if Helios 44 – 2 of the old type.


The feeling of a humid wall with the relatively favorite taking.
Is it difficult to get sharpness in the shade?


I also feel close to Sharpness seen in Industar 61.
As this part of technology is shared as a state-owned enterprise of the Soviet Union, will it resemble even if the lenses are different?


After all, Helios seems to be excellent in all versions.
So I think there are many markets.

Purchase

Helios 44-2 F2.0/58mm MMZ later

M42, Minimum distance 50cm, Blade 8, 4 group 6 lenes
Filter diameter is larger than the previous 49 mm, so I think that it is probably 52 mm.


This Helios 44-2 latter term version. The number is small, but if you look closely it is also on the market a little.

eBay price,
It is around $50 to $100 yen with postage included.

About Mount

I use a mount similar to this.

Walking around

“Sangubashi” degree★★★☆☆=3


Float around the nearby air for some time.


There is nothing special in the vicinity of Yoyogi Park in particular, but whether it is quiet and easy to take in areas where there is a downtown atmosphere and light becomes gentle.


It is a bicycle in a state not at all gentle lol.


After passing quiet lively bustle of Sangubashi station,


Pass through the treasures of Yoyogi Park where the hills are beautiful,


I arrived at the Meiji Shrine on the Yoyogi side that has a big Torii.


I like the atmosphere where there are small shops near Yoyogi Station.
And a late lunch at a hamburger shop in a side street beside the building.
If it is the shortest photographing distance of Helios, it is impossible to make a stroke.


I walked to Shinjuku as it is, recently I came back to Nitori of rumors.
