... a blast from the past !


We started this project in order to explore the potential of vintage lenses mounted on digital cameras. Unlike many modern lenses, vintage lenses generally have distinctive optical features – we like to think of them as flavors or spices, so in the end it's all about choosing the right aroma in terms of creative expression. We also love the fact that they express simple values and can perform beautifully after decades of use. It comes as a pleasant surprise, considering that nowadays the quality of lenses is becoming more a matter of price than of value. Most legacy lenses are well built and some of them are beautifully crafted, so if used and kept well, they will continue to work for a very long time. We hope that our quest will inspire you to find more creative ways of expression than the established alternatives. We encourage you to share your own experiences with vintage lenses, both in film and photography.
