First Lens Kit in the World that Allows You to Take Real, Optical Multiple Exposure Snapshots Using Digital Cameras

For those with an insatiable appetite to try something new on their cameras, Lomography just stepped up to the plate again. Targeted at the creative Micro Four Thirds system users, Lomography has come-up with a set of three lenses. Aimed at the artistic urges and marketed as the Experimental Lens Kit, the bundle offers three options for capturing images.

First, a 160-degree fisheye lens, second a 12mm wide-angle lens and finally a 24mm standard lens. The units are said to have the capability to shoot multiple optical exposures with a digital camera. They can also take color inserts for additional effects. The color filters allow one to change hues by putting in color gels. E

ach lens also comes armed with a mechanical shutter for taking the multiple exposures being touted about. All one needs do is leave the shutter on the camera open. Open/close the lens and you get several images in the same frame.

Lomography is quick to point out that this is “the first lens kit in the world which allows you to take real, optical multiple exposure snapshots using digital cameras.”

Specifications for each lens are as follows:

I am a freelance photographer who is no stranger to smudged lenses, long hours in front of the computer, heavy camera bags (and the back aches that ensued) and missing lens caps. If you know what I'm talking about, you probably have as much love and passion for photography as I do.
