    Lomography Naiad 15mm f/3.8 Neptune System Announcement

      News

    Lomography has surprised us once again. This time it has presented an ultra wide-angle lens based on the Neptune System.

    In the middle of 2017, Lomography presented the Neptune system, which is based on the almost 200 year-old project of a French optician, Charles Chevalier. The basis of the whole construction is the module with aperture, focus ring, and mount with 3 lenses, to which we can connect various front optical elements. Thanks to this solution, the system is more convenient and compact.

    1). Lomography Naiad 15mm f/3.8

     

    Lomography Naiad 15mm f/3.8 consists of 9 elements, placed in 7 groups. As the producer assures, the lenses have been made of high quality optical glass and they are supposed to ensure the sharpness of image and faithful color reproduction. In addition, the lens is equipped with f/3.8 aperture, which can be closed up to f/22. The minimum focus distance is merely 1cm.

    The latest lens is, of course, manual and it is not equipped with any contacts. It has been designed having in mind full-frame reflex cameras of Canon, Nikon and Pentax, but it, of course, works with APS-C sensors.

    An interesting solution used in the lens is a sun shield, which is at the same time a holder of filters with the width of 100mm and the thickness of 2 mm. (the producers of wide-angle lenses should take a note of it!)

      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.
       

      1). Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art
       
      The construction of the lens is very simple. It consists of two elements placed in only one group.
       
      Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art has the focal length of 64mm and the light f/2.9. The aperture is the ring Watehouse system, which is rarely used nowadays.
       

      2). Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art
       
      Of course, the lens doesn't have autofocus. Its minimum focus distance is 0.5m. The lens makes it possible to mount filters with the diameter of 40.5mm.
       

      3). Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art
       
      Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens is already available on sale, with Nikon F and Canon EF mounts. The lens costs $499.

      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.
       

      1). Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan
       
      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).
       

      2). Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan
       
      The camera is already available on pre-sale for around $190.
