You can pledge as conservative as $15 in support of making the Lomography Petzval (D)SLR ARt Lens a reality for 21st century photographers and filmmakers!

Because of the all out support we’ve been receiving, we have slots for only the following pledges left:

  • $15+ – Get a Lomography Keychain, a set of Lomography Shutter Buttons and a selection of small Petzval prints as a token of our appreciation.
  • $50+ – For this pledge, we will gladly send you a 60cm x 40cm photo poster preint of a gorgeous photo taken with the Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens.

  • $500+ – Pledge $500 or more and get your very own black engraved Petzval lens with engraving for a very special price. Yup, you get to have a name engraved on the lens, and it will have a serial number engraved on it too!
  • $2000+ – A set of rewards for the photographic elite! Not only will you get one of the first 5 produced units of the Petzval lens with engraving, you’ll also be treated like a King (or Queen) with a Petzval-themed trip to Vienna and Slovakia, and a special edition Lomo LC-A+ 20th Anniversary Edition camera!

Sounds exciting, right? To give you guys a bit of a boost, we’re happy to inform you that aside from the awesome perks that will already come with the respective pledges; we’ll be adding more goodies since we’ve gone over the $100,000 mark and hit certain stretch goals!

  • $200,000 – We will send every backer a set of small commemorative Petzval photo prints.
  • $300,000 – We will send every backer a specially made cleaning cloth, designed to keep your Petzval lens in pristine condition.
  • $400,000 – We will send every backer a unique cotton bag to store your Petzval lens and other goodies in whilst on-the-go.
  • $500,000 – We will send every backer an exclusively crafted leather pouch to safely house your Petzval lens.

Aren’t you excited to get your own Petzval lens and the goodies that come with it?

*For those who pledged on the lower tier rewards without the Petzval lens, unfortunately we cannot send out the bonus stretch goal rewards tagged $300,000 onwards.

The new Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens is a reinvention of the legendary portrait glass lens that first appeared in the 19th century. Our version is a high-quality glass optic that makes it possible for Canon and Nikon analogue and digital SLR mount cameras to yield the famous Petzval look – sharp focus areas with unique bokeh effects, strong color saturation, and artful vignettes. It’s a distinct look that goes far beyond using photo editing software and filters.

Fund this project on Kickstarter and help us bring back this extraordinary lens for 21st century photographers and filmmakers!

    Hands-on Experience with the Lomo'Instant

    What I got is the Lomo'Instant Black Edition. Its texture and finish is quite simple, and could work as creative space for someone who's into DIY and decorations. In terms of form, it is very handy and acceptable in size. I also love the camera strap that makes it easy to carry.
