    Petzval lens?

    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....

    looks like nice cratsmanship! something made from wood?

    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
    bokiopaki ·

    I'd say a tilt-shift camera.

  12. bokiopaki

    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.

    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.

    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!

  20. mellz

    Focusing knob?

  21. stratski

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

  22. 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

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

  27. 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

    For sure it's a petzval lens:

  34. 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

    Estonian Intersections of Sight and Sound

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
