Check out what happened when digital movie expert Uwe Mimoun was armed with the Petzval Lens, a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera and some dizzy Lomography HQ staff ...
We wanted to see how the Petzval lens handled the latest digital technology so we invited Uwe Mimoun to Lomography HQ to try out the Petzval on the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera!
Not only did we have a lot of fun, this video is a good example of how diverse our legendary lens is. We usually shoot with f 2.2 or f2.8 to get the swirly bokeh effect – But in this video we shot using f 5.6, demonstrating how you can achieve really sharp footage across the whole field with the Petzval Lens.
The dizzying heights the Petzval reaches never cease to amaze! Pre-order yours now for June delivery or find out more here.

What happens when you take one crazy film guy, some new and interesting Lomography film, and see what it can do? Magic is what happens, and that is why you need to try some of these techniques when shooting the LomoChrome Turquoise yourself!
Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.
Have you ever wondered what would happen when a Petzval is paired with a close up lens? Wonder no longer — a match made in heaven! We got up close and personal with the Petzval and think the results speak for themselves — but get in there and have a look for yourself!
Christopher Logan has covered New York Fashion Week extensively with Lomography. He's had individual publication and drawn in crowds to our NYC Gallery Store. When he took the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens to the first weekend Men's exhibition of New York Fashion Week shows, the results were astounding. His photos had their own takeover on the @AmericanPhotoMag Instagram feed and he was given a feature in GQ Brazil. Read on to get a glimpse of what he and the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens can create.

The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
