Petzval 80.5 f/1.9 MKII Bokeh Control Art Lens, The Bright Side Of Winter Lights


When looking out the window, it is hard to spot a bright sky between December and March. We can count the sunny days on our fingers during winter.

Yet even though it may seem like there is less time to shoot, we can use every situation we find ourselves in to our advantage. What makes our cities more colorful during the holiday season are the lights that adorn the stores.

There is no better piece of kit to take advantage of this particular source of light than our Petzval 80.5 f/1.9 MKII Bokeh Control Art Lens. This art lens is equipped with a controller, which lets you adjust the intensity of your bokeh. With this you can change the consistency of your shapes in your background to best suit the photo you want to create.

The characteristics of this lens are unique. When combined with so many light sources, such as the Christmas lights, with their many bulbs, its uniqueness shines through. Enjoy a wide open aperture at 1.9 ƒ that welcomes all the light coming in, even in low light conditions.

With seven different levels of bokeh to control that make your background different each time, the Petzval art lens gives us out-of-the-ordinary portraits that fill the frame with character and style. The bokeh control affects the focal point, so be sure to also check your focus after adjusting the bokeh ring.

During the day there are specific conditions where bokeh is visible in an image. This lens is designed and created to creatively accentuate aberrations. It will delight those who appreciate giddiness and distortions and want to create a distinctive style.

Let's not forget that there's more than just concentric bokeh. The round shapes are due to the concentric form of the lens circumference. Therefore, we can insert plates with various shapes and it will alter the background for even more diversity. Don't be afraid to experiment with offbeat figures. After all, limits exist only if we decide they do.
