A New Star in the System: Meet the Naiad 3.8/15 Art Lens

6

After the success of the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System on Kickstarter just nine months ago, we got to work on an ultra-wide 15mm front lens: Naiad. Daring you to shoot every last dramatic detail, Naiad expands your field of view to a whopping 135° and comes with a closest focusing distance of 1 cm. It’s super lightweight and portable, just like the rest of the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System. All you have to do is attach Naiad to the Lens Base and you’re ready to jump lens-first into a world of sensational, sweeping vistas!

Capture Ultra-Wide Shots Steeped in Saturated Colors and Punchy Contrasts

Naiad pushes you to shoot fuller frames steeped in the saturated colors and punchy color contrasts that define the legendary Lomo look. Exemplifying the very best of mind-bending modern optics, Naiad's panoramic capability lets light enter and curve, making it ideal for all urban explorations.

Super Sharp Shots from as Close as 1 cm

Get outstandingly near to your subject using Naiad's impressive closest focusing distance of 1 cm. Take a step closer towards your subject, blur the background and plunge into the foreground. Play around and magnify portraits, exaggerate tiny features and shoot pronounced personalities. Watch the foreground dilate and the background contract as you amplify and inflate the world around you.

Fine-tune Your Shots with a Range of Fantastic Filters

Naiad's integrated lens hood doubles as a filter holder so that you can master the shading in your shot. Compatible with rectilinear filters with a maximum thickness of 2mm, Naiad's lens hood rotates a full 360° to give you complete creative freedom. Control the amount of light that falls onto your raw images with a Neutral Density Filter, bring out the subtleties in skies with a Neutral Density Graduated Filter, and use orange and blue Temperature Filters Set to give shots a light, sunny glow or a cool, cinematic feel.

    I'm impressed with the new filter types and attachments! Wish lomography would make this system work with other lenses so I don't need to buy a million filters for every different size lens I own (hint hint lomography). lens looks great too.

    @vicuna Dommage que le Minolta ne soit pas compatible... Je vais attendre un peu avant d'acheter encore un nouvel appareil. Lequel je pourrai acheter ?

    @gheinz tu peux trouver un Nikon FE pour un très bon prix, et c'est des appareils excellents! Et compatibles avec un très grand choix d'objectifs de monture F (qui existe depuis 1959)
