As our initial “thank you” for your interest in the product, here’s the Petzval video in HD so you can see the full glory of this swirly bokeh-lens wonder! (Make sure to right-click and “Turn HD” on)

Watch out for more reward offers, stretch goal perks and campaign updates in the coming days!

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!
