Lomo LC-A + Tunnel Vision Lens

14

Go into the tunnel of Lomographic love with the LC-A's Tunnel Vision Lens. It give your photos a painterly effect that cannot be duplicated.

I like the special mystic character, the Tunnel Vision Lens gives to my pics. The center of your view appears sharp, and things get further out view becomes a bit blurry and then a bit dark.

With a little magnetic skipper mount on the front of your camera (this shiny ring gives your camera also a very special design), and actively blow your images out into strikingly tunnel-bound and freakishly wide-angle shots.
But not just that, this lens could also be used for MACRO feature. If you mount the upper part of the lens, set the aperture at f/11 or f/16 (use a 400 ASA film), and get up to one inch (2,5 cm) from your subject. You can use this lens also for your Holga.

But don’t forget of to use the security strip, which comes together with the lens, especially when you turn the camera to the ground, may be the lens could be lost.
