Is there going to be an option for electronic contacts on the Daguerreotype Achromat?
No, we have not designed the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens to work with electronic contacts. Rather than focus our attention on making it functional with electronic contacts, we have instead focused on perfecting all of the other amazing features of the Daguerreotype Achromat. We actually love the feeling of shooting with a manual lens. It changes the whole experience of photography and slows you down. This system gives you a full understanding of how apertures work and drastically alter your shooting results. This is something our testers have remarked, and you can find more info about what they said on this page. There is a really special feeling to manually changing Waterhouse aperture stops. Our motivation was not to produce a lens which simply looks like a vintage lens, we wanted to recreate the magical experience of photography that people shooting in the 19th century had.
We cannot take any responsibility if backers modify their Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens and damage their camera.
