How to Use the Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens

Ever wondered how to use a reinvented 19th century lens with a modern DSLR camera? We’ve prepared a special video just to show you how!

Today is the last day of our Petzval Campaign on Kickstarter. This means that you have only a few more hours to pledge your support and be rewarded as one of the first proud owners of the Petzval Lens.

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!
