When Two Worlds Collide: Digital Delights Courtesy of the the New Petzval Lens

It's been a week since we launched the Kickstarter project for the Lomography Petzval (D)SLR lenses, and since we're pretty stoked about its progress, we would like to share more photos for your viewing pleasure! Check it out!

As you may have heard, the Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens is here to bring the old school aesthetic back to your favorite SLR camera — both in film and digital format.

Yes, you read that right: it can be used in your favorite Canon and Nikon DSLRs, too! And while that may seem a bit strange, you better believe that the beauty of the Petzval lenses transcends time and technology. That’s how classic it is. Why, just take a look at the photos below!

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!
