As Instagram has shown, people are drawn to vintage-style photography for its romantic and nostalgic effect on their otherwise basic images; the Lomography Petzval Portrait Lens takes it to the next level. Inspired by camera technology from the 1840s, this lens brings an instant vintage quality to photos without needing to digitally manipulate or enhance them. More than that, it fits onto both Nikon and Canon models for more professional results.

Thriving on imperfections that made analog photography full of character and uniqueness, the Lomography Petzval Portrait Lens brings back a bit of soul to the industry. What makes it stand out even more is its physical design. Its brass exterior makes it appear as though it were actually from the 19th century.
