it arrived!

I have been waiting months for my Kickstarter purchase to arrive. And after sitting in customs for a month, it is here! It is a Petzval Lens, made by Lomography.

“The Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens is a reinvention of the legendary Petzval Lens first conceived of in Vienna, Austria in 1840. The lens produces images with extreme sharpness, strong color saturation, artful vignetting and absolutely beautiful swirly bokeh backgrounds.”

Opening the box and seeing all the addons and features was so fun! It has a manual focus knob and you set the aperture by putting plates in the slot. Incredible combination of analog and digital. Can’t wait to see how the photos turn out.
