    looks like some part of a La Sardina Metal edition ? Some metal edition of an existing camera ?

    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.

  10. djramsay

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

  11. bokiopaki
    bokiopaki ·

    I'd say a tilt-shift camera.

  12. bokiopaki
    bokiopaki ·

    Or a tilt-shift lens.

  13. forgoodnessjakes
    forgoodnessjakes ·

    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.

  14. djramsay

    Konstruktor is the only SLA readilly availible here

  15. cabreb

    Shure it is a Petzval lens.

    Petzval lens for sure!

    now i feel like i have to buy a konstruktor.

  18. photobarbie

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

  19. isophotographic
    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!

  20. mellz
    mellz ·

    Focusing knob?

  21. stratski
    stratski ·

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

  22. upstart_thunder
    upstart_thunder ·

    Macro cam?

  23. muhamad_haiz_shamsudin
    muhamad_haiz_shamsudin ·

    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...

  24. francois
    francois ·

    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!

  25. ardiningrumws
    ardiningrumws ·

    Something that rotate maybe???

  26. yerzmyey
    yerzmyey ·

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

  27. susanann
    susanann ·

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

  28. lborba
    lborba ·

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

  29. herbert-4
    herbert-4 ·

    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
    annunaki ·

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

  31. stonerfairy

    seems like a button for pinhole camera

  32. stonerfairy

  33. freakoftheweek

    For sure it's a petzval lens:

  34. stratski
    stratski ·

    Another one for the belair perhaps?

  35. bamvansan
    bamvansan ·

    lens for lubitel 166+

  36. leos_
    leos_ ·

    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.

  38. mcjoli
    mcjoli ·

    Its a telephotolens i think

  39. b-rampelt

    adjustable focus knob for a detachable lens? maybe a new addition to the Konstruktor

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

    As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
