For the first time ever, the classic Lomographic style is available on a digital platform with the latest offering from our luxurious Lomography Art Lens Family, the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens
From the ultra-compact pancake design and universal filter thread to the premium Russian optics and beyond, the features and specifications of the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens arrive nearly unparalleled on a broad field of rangefinder lenses.
The days of wasting precious seconds looking through the viewfinder and endlessly adjusting knobs and dials are over. With the quick flick of a switch, you let the Minitar-1 do that for you — just estimate the distance and presto! After a trip around the city, you’ll be fast friends with the Minitar-1 and zone focusing will be your second nature. Additionally, as a rangefinder coupled lens, the Minitar-1 utilizes the Leica M’s rangefinder focus — which means perfectly precise focusing when paired with rangefinder cameras!
The main reason the Minitar-1 yields its supernaturally saturated colors is the complex coating of the lens, which was specifically developed for the Minitar-1. Due to the exceptional construction and calculation of the lens, the Minitar-1 is able to produce its signature rich and supremely saturated colors.
Following the footsteps of the New Petzval and New Russar+ Art Lenses, the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 is the 3rd lens to join the ever-expanding and exciting Lomography Art Lens family. With the New Petzval Lens, we reinvented one of the most important and interesting portrait lenses of all time. Next on the scene was the New Russar+ Lens, which returned a lens of paramount importance to the development of super-wide-angle photography. Now, with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, we’re delivering the Lomographic style to a brand new level of photography— digital! Every new Lomography Art Lens brings a whole new variety of creative possibilities to a photographer’s camera bag. No Art Lens is alike — each one offers the opportunity to get truly unique shots with a special optical character you won’t find with regular photographic lenses. With every Lomography Art Lens, we continue our unwavering commitment to producing new tools for shooting creative and experimental photos.
