- Lomography’s Brass Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art 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!
