Lomography 64mm f/2.9 Daguerreotype Achromat 


adaptable to all mirrorless cameras via the proper adapter

Who in their right mind would imagine to reintroduce the world's first photographic lens?

Well, the inventive folks at Lomography of course!

We currently have the Brass Nikon mount and Black Canon EOS mount lenses  

Have a GREAT time traveling back to the future!

-portrait by Joshua Roth with one of the star shaped waterhouse f stop plates included in with this lens

"The Daguerreotype Achromat is directly inspired by the world’s first photographic optic lens
– a 19th century invention created for the Daguerreotype camera by Charles Chevalier.

"Almost two centuries later, we’ve reworked it as a powerful tool for modern-day photographers and cinematographers.

Celebrating the great return of dreamy imagery, you can alternate between razor-sharp images, or drape your world in silky soft focus. The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens has a focal length of 64 mm and a classic Waterhouse Aperture system ranging from f/2.9 to f/16 and featuring specially designed plates to produce deep, textured backgrounds rarely achieved in photography. The optical construction has been redesigned from the original, so that you can enjoy ethereal soft focus from apertures below f/4, or razor-sharp definition with deep contrasts from f/5.6 onwards.

Experiment with a variety of bokeh effects with the Waterhouse Aperture System by simply inserting a plate into a shaft in front of the lens elements. For softer, more painterly effects, Lomography has also developed Lumière and Aquarelle Aperture plates. The Lumière aperture plates yield a soft glow and a delicate grained background, while the Aquarelle aperture plates produce a rich and textured effect, similar to watercolour masterpieces!"

The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens is another great addition to the Lomography line of unique art lens. The construction is very sturdy and finely constructed. What I found most excited about shooting with this lens was the pure creativity I felt as I explored the opitions the Achromat has.

-d800 Star Waterhouse f/stop

As I experimented with the waterhouse f/stops, I began to realize common objects like the mushrooms popping up through the grass on my morning walk could be seen through a new yet old ( very old at that) lens. My eye was intrigued so I stopped and geniunely played around with the Achromat to get a unique and dreamy image. 

-d800  f/2.9

I believe the strongest attribute the Achrmat lens has is with portraiture. Looking through the camera at the subject, I could see the soft yet enchanting image this lens would produce as I was taking this portrait. The bokeh has so much character with each change of the waterhouse f/stops that the possibilites seems endless for the creative mind. For those who are looking to add a unique element to their portfolio should absolutely consider getting an Daguerreotype Achrmat Art Lens. "
