Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens


Lomography, champions of retro photography, have reached all the way back to the beginning of the art form with the Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens. Inspired by the lens created by Charles Chevalier and Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre that took the first photo of a human in Paris in 1838, this handcrafted lens lets you capture images with a unique quality modern lenses can’t match. Using a achromat optic design, it creates a soft glow at large apertures and offers surprising precision as you stop down. It’s fixed at a 64mm, can use Lumière and Aquarelle Aperture Plates for added effects, and is available for both Canon EF and Nikon F mounts, with your choice of black or historically-inspired brass finish.
