About our project
We started this project in order to explore the potential of vintage lenses. 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. 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.
