A Very Weird Lens
My tech friend Tim Bray, an inventor of XML who works for Amazon but lives in Vancouver just bought this wonderfully weird lens:
The Daguerreotype Achromat is directly inspired by the world's first photographic optic lens - a 19th century invention…microsites.lomography.com
Even those who have digital cameras can used this device. My Fuji X-E1 has a cheap available adapter for my Nikon lenses (the film cameras).
Generally as a magazine photographer since 1975 I have been slow to use new stuff. But in 1977 when my competitors were shooting with 35s I bought a Mamiya RB-67 Pro S with a revolving back. The 6x7cm format became a favourite of the many magazine art directors I worked with. They liked both the horizontal and vertical capabilities of the revolving back. This meant that my pictures could be used a full vertical bleed or two-page spreads. I am now 74 and I am awfully curious.
Perhaps I am just curious about that Aquarelle Waterhouse Aperture.
