Presenting a new video and more photos created with the new Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens.

A Night Out with the Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens

We stepped out for a fun night-out at the Prater Amusement Park in Vienna – armed with a camera and the first Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens sample. See how this lens turns the night into artistic and cinematic delights!

New Petzval Photos

We’ve been taking the Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens around town the past few days and have new photos from our first working prototype. In the next few days, we will be showing you exclusive shots taken from new prototypes which we will receive this week so stay tuned. Check out more photos in our Microsite.

Updated Petzval Pledge Caps

We are now now limiting the $400 brass to a maximum of 1000 pledges and the $500 black lens pledges to 200. This is because we want to ensure all backers that we can produce enough lenses in the time period we promised.

The Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens Mounted on Digital SLRS

For those of you who are curious as to how the Petzval Lens would look like on your Digital SLR’s, here’s an exclusive first look. Aren’t they a thing of beauty?

Read more on the Petzval Lens.

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!
