    • An Expandable System to Grow With Your Creativity -- The latest front lens to be added to the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System, Naiad is now available in the Lomography Online Shop and Gallery Stores worldwide. Pick up up yours with a Lens Base for as little as $699 USD.

    A Brand New, Ultra-Wide 15mm Front Lens

    The Neptune Convertible Art Lens System offers unlimited stylistic possibilities to a whole new generation of photographers. Lomography is proud to present a new star in the system: Naiad. Built for ultra-wide eyed explorers, this brand new 15mm lens will jolt you on a journey of extraordinary angles. Simply attach it onto the Lens Base and you're ready to jump into a world of sensational, sweeping vistas. Designed for full frame shots but suitable for crop sensor cameras too, Naiad works with Canon EF and Nikon F mount and is available now in the Lomography Online Shop and Gallery Stores worldwide.

    With a 135° Field of View to Fill with Punchy, Saturated Colors

    Exemplifying the very best of mind-bending modern optics, Naiad's panoramic capability lets light enter and curve. Straight lines appear to bend, and the further away they are from the optical centre, the greater the barrel-like distortion---ideal for street scenes as well as pronounce portraits. Filling each and every frame with strong, saturated colors and punchy contrasts that define Lomography's signature look, Naiad will drive your shots to ever-more epic proportions.

    Shoot Super Sharp Shots from as Close as 1cm

    Using its impressive closest focusing distance of 0.01m, Naiad invites you to take a step closer towards your subject, blur the background and plunge into the foreground. Play around and magnify portraits, exaggerate tiny features and puff up personalities. Watch the foreground dilate and the background contract as you amplify the world around you.

    Finetune Your Shots with a Range of Fantastic Filters

    Naiad's integrated lens hood doubles as a filter holder so that you can master the shading in your shot. Compatible with rectilinear filters with a maximum thickness of 2mm, Naiad's lens hood rotates a full 360° to give you complete creative freedom. Control the amount of light that falls onto your raw images with a Neutral Density Filter, bring out the subtleties in skies with a Neutral Density Graduated Filter, and use orange and blue Temperature Filter Set to give shots a light, sunny glow or a cool, cinematic feel.

    An Expandable System to Grow With Your Creativity

    The Neptune Convertible Art Lens System is comprised of three interchangeable lenses, each of which can be attached to the Lens Base to shoot at a fixed focal length of 3.5/35mm for Thalassa, 2.8/50mm for Despina, or 4/80mm for Proteus. And now, Naiad promises to be yet another portal to an even more powerful wide-angle perspective with a fixed focal length of 3.8/15mm. Now available in the Lomography Online Shop and Gallery Stores worldwide.
