I had one of these with Sankyo camera. You can put diaframes in it to ... frame the picture. Like goggles, hearts etc or put filters in it.

As Gabriel was saying, this device ? as you probably know, Chris ? allows to copy-film anything,
mostly transparent slided, by putting this device on the front of the lens, clipping it there so that if covers the front lens element.

This is particularly useful with lenses with a macro option in which the entire lens group is moved rather than limiting the macro range to the wide-angle where lenses are often featuring the worst abberations. Only four leading lenses have this feature: the Macro-Neovaron 1:1,2 / 7-45mm and Macro-Neovaron 1:1,2 / 6-51mm as found on Bauer cameras (like the Bauer C 700 XLM or Bauer S 709 XL microcomputer), the Nikon Cine-Nikkor 1:1,4 / 7-70mm on the Nikon R10, and finally the Angénieux f/1,2 | T/1,4-2,1 / 6-80mm (C-Mount), plus of course the Schneider 11x6m found on the Beaulieu 4008 ZM II and Leitz Leicina Special.

As you can see, the item at hand was an accessory for the R10. A macro-banc accessory was available from Beaulieu, and Leitz robbed you of every Deutsche Mark as well through cashing in on accessorising their gear like that. Bauer, however, supplied their C high-numbered triple-digit models with a basic but effective accessory free out of the box which was a combination of a Beaulieu macro banc and this device for the R10.

It is very helpful if you want to do in-camera visual effects and titling (which can look much much better than diletantic CGI) and should be part of the accessory case of every filmmaker who understands what Super 8 as a format is all about.

BTW, you can also use it as a filter holder for gelatine or special-order square-glass filters by not using the macro function when having it attached up front.
