If you have a a mate with a 3D printer, you may be able to get him to print off an adaptor if you give him the ID and OD dimensions.

Why do people buy vinyl, collect stamps, old radios, drive old cars, it would be a boring world if we were all the same like sheep

Practica has M42x1 thread (pentax, Zenit etc), and the adapters you have are M42x0.75 (T-mount).
Try with this one:

or this one:
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/T2-T-Tel...gAAOSwj0NUd0lL


They will bot screw into Practica (M42x1) and your eyepiece adapter will fit into female M412x0.75.


In the meantime I wouldn't have problem to use 3d-printed part.

I have one of those m42 Pentax screw mount adapters for T2. Came with the old c8, and the inner T2 parts are often exchangeable with other adapters if you have some other adapter parts for m42 lense mounts . The m42 adapter can easily take other internally threaded bayonet adapters.

One of the ways film can exceed sensors is in colour depth, and in medium format, resolution. I read a discussion of the difference between digital backs and colour film on medium format and it would seem that colour depth and resolution on film can be greater in medium format than most digital cameras if you can afford the film.

Till next year anyway.

Interested to see BW scans from the film shots. I have thought that BW images through LRBG filters, scanned and combined would be an interesting and low cost way to use film . Any one have a spare 645/ Tak adapter ?
