The people we meet and the places we go to are essential ingredients to making our most treasured memories.

People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.
They may look a little unassuming, but you should never underestimate the power of camera lens filters for they can greatly affect the appearance of your photographs. The Color Filter Set includes blue, green, orange, red, and yellow filters which you can use to get the right monochromatic shades when photographing in black and white. Meanwhile, the Super Filter Set also includes the same filters as the abovementioned set, plus the UV, CPL, and ND4 filters which you can use when shooting in full color. These are all 58mm filters – perfect for your Petzval Art Lens too!

Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect.

Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
