    Petzval lens looks spot-on! And does it point to Large-format too ? hmm....

    Petzval lens seems about right given the picture in the first article.

    Wiki Petzval looks spot on. But which camera will it be for?

  11. bokiopaki

    I'd say a tilt-shift camera.

    Or a tilt-shift lens.

    Definitely a petzval lens, but I don't know what camera it would be for, or if it's a stand alone accessory for SLRs.

    Petzval lens judging from the look of the photo in the email I got. Wonder which camera it'll be for?

  19. isophotographic

    A Petzval-formula lens with a rack and pinion focus! Since the Konstructor is your only SLR, it must be designed for that camera. Any rangefinder wouldn't be able to make use of the focus adjustment you are showing here. I'm really looking forward to this!

    Focusing knob?

    Looks awfully metallic to be a konstuktor lens... Though the actual product might not actually be metal of course.

    Macro cam?

    Based on the clues so far (the cross-section diagram and the focusing knob picture), it does indicate a Petzval lens (old lens design achieving f/3.7) as said by @wilper but I'm not sure what the "new-ness" part of it is. Hmmm...

    Too big for a Konstruktor lens. Besides I don't see the Konstruktor with a brass barrel lens!
    It looks like a part from an old wet plate camera... but I know this is going to be wrong!

    Heh, You don't say it will be a projector for a LomoKino. That's something I'd buy for sure, haha. :)

    hmmmm......the first clue looked a bit "lensey", but this...
    some kind of film advancer screw.

    Fine focusing for macro...or perhaps a tilt/shift lens?

    Looks like focus rack for Petzval lens... Are we going large format, maybe... Petzval f3.7 lens and Packard shutter???? giant box camera????

  30. annunaki

    Medium format film camera with a Petzval lens would be my best guess.

    I gues it'll be a petzval lens for konstruktor or belair camera. But I don't really think it'll be made from metal.

  37. deepfried_goodness
    deepfried_goodness ·

    I think it's going to be the new Belair lens (if it really is metal). If it's for the Konstructor, it will likely be plastic. It would also be cool if it was an M42 mount for the various Zenit SLR cameras.

    Its a telephotolens i think
