What to Shoot with the New Russar+ Lens

As the mother of all modern wide-angle lenses, the New Russar+ Lens shoots sharp wide-angle photos bursting with character. The solid yet compact ultra-wide 20mm lens can be used to photograph practically anything, and is compatible with a variety of film and digital cameras. Certainly this is a lens that delivers, but like anything, you can reap its full potential by choosing ideal subjects and shooting from a creative perspective.


A mountain range, the beach, or an open field would unquestionably look spectacular when photographed using the New Russar+. Imagine the immeasurable expanse of scenery it can capture.


The Russar+ takes exceptional architectural shots because of its capacity to exaggerate the sense of scale lines and make the lines appear bolder. Shooting from different levels makes these beautiful distortions appear.


When shooting portraits with the Russar+, bear in mind since it is a wide angle lens, it can attract more attention to your subject by drawing the viewers’ eyes from different corners of the frame. Try taking a picture in enclosed spaced and you’ll see what I mean.

Street Photography

The Russar+ is ideal for street photography for two obvious reasons: because it’s compact and because of its wide focal length. You can bring it anywhere, and take in so much of the action. And with street photography, you’re not limited to people or places; you can photograph otherwise ordinary everyday scenes and make them appear extra special.

Night Shots

The New Russar+ Lens is a great for taking pictures at night as it is for daytime shots. Lighted streets and neon lights look amazing.

The New Russar+ is a stunning brass-bodied wide-angle lens. It is a pioneering update on the 1958 Russar. Thanks to its modified lens tube construction, the New Russar+ is compatible with L39 and M mount analogue cameras, digital mirrorless cameras and loads of other cameras using adaptor mounts.
