Kickstart This Shizz: Lomography Petzval Lens
Sure it looks utilitarian, but this EF and F mount compatible lens from Lomography pulls in some amazing images. The subject stays sharply in focus when in the center of the composition, but trippy bokeh and swirls fill up the sides and background. Lomography are taking this nearly 200-year-old design and are updating it to be compatible with today’s digital and analog SLR cameras. A lot of the pledges that get you the lens at a discounted price are already taken up, and the Kickstarter project has already surpassed its goals tenfold, but the lens should be available for $500 when it’s publicly released in the Spring of 2014.
