The Lomography Petzval Portrait Lens

I can’t believe they are going to produce the Petzval Portrait Lens; IT IS ON IN KICKSTARTER.. AWESOME

I just backed it for $400 bledge, and seriously can’t wait to use it!

Specifications:

The Waterhouse Aperture System

The new Lomography Petzval Lens works using a traditional Waterhouse aperture system. With this design, your lens comes with a set of stops (also known as diaphragms). Each diaphragm is drilled with a hole of a different size; these sizes correspond to the f-stop or aperture. So if you’d like to shoot with f/4 aperture, you select the f/4 diaphragm and insert it into the aperture slot of your lens; if you’d like to shoot with a f/11 aperture, you select the f/11 diaphragm and so on. Here are the aperture options for the Lomography Petzval lens:

  • f/2.2
  • f/4
  • f/5.6
  • f/8
  • f/11
  • f/16
