Photography specialists Lomography have taken to Kickstarter once again this week to launch their new Lomogon 2.5/32 Art Lens. A handcrafted lens designed to “electrify your street adventures”. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Lomogon’s dial-styled aperture mechanism works with Lomography’s signature click-and-stop feeling.
Lomography explain more about the new lens which is launched via Kickstarter this week and is now available to back with earlybird pledges available from $299 or roughly £229 the black aluminium edition. Worldwide shipping is expected to take place during November 2019.
“We’ve created a lens to refresh street and travel photography. Introducing the Lomogon – with a 32 mm focal length to widen your world. But the Lomogon isn’t your standard wide-angle lens. In the age of black plastic equipment, hyper-communication, and digital saturation, we wanted this tool to put the adventure back into your everyday stories. We inspired ourselves from vintage optics for a retro design that sparks wanderlust from the outside, while producing timeless character from the inside.”
Features of the new Lomogon 2.5/32 Art Lens include :
– Enhanced Colors, High Contrast & Unique Bokeh: Built to deliver unmistakable pictures by enhancing colors and contrast, the Lomogon is similar to the character of the Lomo LC-A+. Its perfectly round apertures produce one-of-a-kind, circular bokeh – different from any modern-day lens.
– Travel and Street Photography Optimized: With a 32 mm focal length and a minimum focusing distance of only 0.4 m, the Lomogon allows you to get dramatically close or wonderfully wide. Designed for speed, the dial-styled aperture mechanism goes from f/2.5 to f/11 in a split second – you won’t ever miss a moment again.
– A Carefully Crafted, Beautifully Designed Object: Assembled entirely by hand, the Lomogon brings to mind the timeless qualities of traditional craftsmanship. It’s compatible with analogue and digital SLRs, as well as mirrorless cameras.
– Shaped by Round-The-World Adventures: Tested by photographers and videographers from all corners of the world, the Lomogon was born into a life of wanderlust and travel – and it’s ready for more.
