Helios 44M with flipped Front Lens Test Roll

I found this Tutorial Video for a simple but powerful modification of the Zenit Helios Lenses. All you must do is flipping the front lens, and the crazyiness begins. After the modification, i mounted the Helios with an M42 adapter with focus confirm chip on my Canon EOS 50E. With this combination it's very easy to focussing when you see the drunken swirl through the viewfinder. Here is the Tutorial Video: youtu.be/_sEXubrUupA
