Old lenses database for video

Taken from a Kodak Folding camera from 1914, this meniscus lens (one element) is placed in a EOS cap with a bellows. The aperture limiter was removed to obtain the soft focus. The focal length is 115mm and the aperture about f/5.6.
I used an extraordinary Picture Style called FLAAT_2 made by Samuel Hurtado, free to download in his site.

The contrast is set at -4, the saturation at 0, and NO sharpness.

NO COLOR CORRECTION, straight from camera, no sharpness added.
Made with Magic Lantern. Thanks A1ex.
Transcoded with 5DtoRGB.
