19th Century Lomography Petzval Portrait Lens

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Tech

The team at Lomography have tapped our nostalgia with the release of this incredible Lomography Pezval lens, replicating the brass cylinder design from the very same lens invented by Jospeh Petzval in 1840.

The lens looks as though it was born in the 19th century, but it has been completely updated to ensure it will work with 21st century Canon and Nikon cameras.  Seeing that the original Petzval lens was known for its beautiful portrait shots, Lomography made sure that this lens kept the same strong color saturation, narrow depth of field, and other important attributes that were loved so much from the original lens. As a marketing tactic, the team at Lomography decided to raise awareness for the product through Kickstarter, and to the surprise of none, the brand crushed their $100,000 goal with ease.
