Lomography Daguerreotype overview

  • 1Description

Based on the first lens designed specifically for photography, the Nikon F-mount Daguerreotype Achromat 64mm f/2.9 Art Lens from Lomography is a modern interpretation of the classic Chevalier-designed optic from 1835, which was popularized by Daguerre. Using a simple doublet optical design, this lens can produce either characteristic soft focus imagery when shot wide open, or strikingly sharp, well-defined imagery at smaller aperture settings. It uses a Waterhouse aperture system and includes six discs for full-stop adjustments between f/2.9 to f/16, and a series of six creative Lumiere and Aquarelle aperture plates are also included to render either dreamy, glowing images or pictures with a more painterly quality. Manual focus control is possible using the built-in helicoid for working with subjects as close as 1.6' away, and the lens features a classic-looking black housing.

Based on the achromatic lens developed by Chevalier, and used by Daguerre, in 1835, this updated lens retains a similar image quality and allows you to alternate between producing soft-focus, ethereal pictures and sharp-focus, well-defined imagery.
A slightly longer-than-normal-length lens, this Nikon F-mount version is compatible with FX sensors and 35mm film, as well as DX sensors where it will provide a 96mm equivalent focal length.
Simple doublet optical design produces an aesthetic image quality reminiscent of the nearly 200-year-old lens.
Six drop-in style Waterhouse stops, ranging from f/2.9 to f/16, are included for aperture and depth of field control, and are inserted into the middle of the lens prior to making an exposure.
A set of three Lumiere and three Aquarelle aperture plates are also included to produce softer, more painterly effects than the traditional circular plates. The Lumiere plates produce a soft glowing quality with a delicate grainy background while the Aquarelle plates offer a rich, textured, and painterly effect.
Manual focusing helicoid permits working with subjects as close as 1.6' away.
Black exterior finish blends both a classic and contemporary aesthetic.
