DIY: How to Create SuperMacro Lens

This fairly amazing 8 min timelapse video from 2010 shows a Russian photographer and an avid DIYer taking a simple lens and turning it (with a lot of hard and very delicate work) into a working super macro lens.

Although probably only very few people will have the time, patience and technical skills to pull this off – it is really enjoyable to watch for anybody who appreciates DIY.
