We’ve featured Geoffrey Berliner in the Lomography Magazine as an avid collector of vintage Petzval Lenses. Curious to see what these vintage lenses look like? Here are a few picks from his collection!
Geoffrey Berliner is the executive director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York City, and a major fan of the Petzval – he has an astounding collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval Lenses! Take a look at some of these prized optics below.
The Petzval Lens was a defining optic in 19th century photography, and we are honored to have brought it back with the Lomography x Zenit Petzval Art Lens. It’s created for Canon EF and Nikon F mount analogue and digital cameras, and it’s about time you get one for yourself!
