    Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens Announcement

      News

    The design and construction of Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art bears references to the lens designed in the 19th century by Charles Chevalier, which was used to capture one of the first photographs showing a man, taken by Louis Jacques Daguerre.

     

    The lens has already been available in the company's offer for some time, in gold and black color versions. Now, the company is presenting a chrome version.

      Lomography, which is famous for its strange and interesting products, has just introduced Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan camera to its offer – the camera which is to take instant photography to a new, sharp dimension that up to this moment has not been available in this type of photography.
       
      Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan is equipped with a wide-angle 21mm lens and a f/4.5 aperture. The lens consists of 6 elements placed in 4 groups. The lenses are covered with special coatings, which are to improve work in contrasting lighting.

      A few interesting solutions were used in the camera: removable lens hood, which is at the same time a remote control, or LED indicators, which inform us about a number of available photos. Additionally, the camera is covered with eco leather, which makes it look interesting.
      Lomo’Instant is compatible with Fujifilm Instax Mini inputs, which are available for $13 (for 20 exposures).

      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art is yet another Sigma lens presented today. This lens is certainly the most awaited one from the whole series presented today.
       
      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art has chances of becoming the most popular lens from Art series on the market for full-frame sensors. It is so because the focal range of 24-70mm works perfectly in almost every kind of reportage. What is more, this lens will also have an attractive price compared to the Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens.
       

      1). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      New Sigma 24-70mm has an optical system built on the basis of 19 lenses placed in 14 groups, where 4 elements are aspherical lenses, and three are made of low-dispersion glass, which is, according to the producer, going to positively influence image quality.
      The front lens is covered with a special protective layer, which is to make cleaning easier and ensure that dust, water, and dirt will not easily rest on the lens. The lens will also have a stabilization system.
       

      2). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      The new lens is also equipped with a quiet, ultrasonic HSM autofocus motor, which is to be 30% faster than its predecessor. The lens will also be compatible with the USB Dock personalizing device.
       

      3). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      Apart from that, the lens has a compact construction in comparison to its systemic equivalents (88x107.6mm). It also has basic weather sealings.
       

      4). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art with Sigma SD Quadro H
       
      Unfortunately, the price and the date of appearing on the market, as in the case of other lenses having their premiere today, is not known yet.
