New Lomography Naiad 15mm Lens

Simon Skinner - 5 years ago

It was just a year ago that Lomography launched its Kickstarter campaign for the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System. Just nine months on and Lomography has announced an all-new addition to the system, the Naiad 3.8/15mm Art Lens

This hand-crafted Art Lens System from Lomography has three interchangeable front lenses [35mm 50mm & 80mm] and two aperture mechanisms. The newly announced ultra-wide lens has a 135° field of view, producing sharp, saturated colours and allowing shooting as close as 1cm from any subject.

The Naiad’s lens hood also doubles up as a filter holder, making it possible to balance shading and stop stray light from entering shots.

Compatibility

The Naiad will only work when it’s attached to the Lens Base of the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System. The Neptune Convertible Art Lens System is four prime lenses in one. Shoot with a fixed focal length of 15mm, 35mm, 50mm or 80mm and experiment with a wide range of f/stops and special aperture plates to achieve countless creative styles. It’s available in Canon EF, Nikon F and Pentax K mount, and compatible with a range of other cameras using adapters.
