Thought this looked strange. Isn't the lens supposed to be attached to the mount below?

Doesn't look like the lens is doing a whole lot where it is.


thanks-

NPRs, like the Bolex and others have a turret mount, so multiple lenses on one camera.
I don't see anything particularly odd about this; aside from storing the lens on the camera itself.

Remember that the NPR is a handheld camera from when documentaries were still done on film. The turret allowed you to have a zoom and a fast prime (there is an f/0.7 1mm switar, for example) on the camera at once and be able to change in an instant.

I will admit that for scripted work, it's kind of pointless since your lenses will probably be all in one mount or the other.
