Now, we’re taking more pictures every two minutes than people made in the 19th century. Lomography wants to keep #fotomagic alive, thereby launching a modern lens inspired by the world’s first photographic lens in 1839.
The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens is a beauty! In brass or black finish, it gives total control of depth of field to the photographer, creating silky-smooth images or razor-sharp pics. For those who are in love with the dreamy vibes the first photographs gave, this is a must-have. The lens has a focal length of 64 mm, apertures ranging from f/2.9 to f/16, available in Canon EF or Nikon F SLR mounts, and compatible with multitudes of other cameras using adapter mounts, such as the Sony Alpha series, Fuji X-Pro 1 and Micro 4/3 Cameras.
For $500, you can purchase it from Kickstarter, where it registered huge success, early birds ending quickly. With a bit of luck, you’ll be able to play with bokeh effects and bring your dreams to life in fall, this year, if you order quickly.
