    Kickstarter Exclusive: The New Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens

    Finally, we reveal our latest Kickstarter project – the reinvention of the Petzval Lens, which was originally invented in 1840! This legendary lens made an impact during the 19th century; with your help and support we can bring it back for 21st century photographers and filmmakers.

    What makes the Petzval Lens so special?

    Well, it’s one of the very first and greatest lenses of all time. It emits a distinct look – sharp focus areas and a wonderful swirly bokeh effect in the background. The new Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens is re-engineered to work with Canon EF and Nikon F mount cameras, so it doesn’t matter if you shoot film or digital. It’s slso multi-coated, so you can expect excellent colors in your photos. You can even shoot films using your DSLR and enjoy the impressive benefits of this Russian lens.

    Artful vignettes, beautiful swirly bokeh background, strong color saturation, and extreme sharp focus areas. What’s not to love?

    Support us on Kickstarter and let’s work on bringing back this exquisite lens!
