I say we can never have enough lenses for our cameras and with that said, I’m always happy to see more and more companies hop aboard the mirrorless interchangeable lens system camera bandwagon. One such company is SLR Magic. SLR Magic is a name that has been coming up a lot lately mainly because they will be coming out with a brand new 50mm super fast f/0.95 lens that they are coming out with, but are also well known for their line of Â Toy Lenses.
SLR Magic has three new Toy Lenses for 3 different camera systems. First there is the Toy Lens Pinhole Lens which is available only for the Micro Four Thirds cameras. Next is the Toy Lens 11mm f/1.4 lens for Q mount cameras. Lastly is the Toy Lens 28mm Bokehmorphic lens which is madeÂ justÂ for NEX e-mountÂ cameras. Â These are lenses that will add a bit of fun to your shots as well as allow you to get these effects without any post-processing.
For more detail about each lens, check out the full press release below.
Hong Kong, China (March 5, 2012)Â – SLR Magic introduces three more Toy Lenses.
The SLR Magic x Toy Lens Pinhole lens is the first wide-angle pinhole lens that is compatible with all micro four third mount cameras. The field of view of this Pinhole Lens corresponds to a 24mm pinhole lens in 35mm format. It is the first pinhole lens to offer a protective glass to keep dust and moisture away from the digital sensor.
The SLR Magic x Toy Lens 11mm f/1.4 is a standard focal length lens that is compatible with all Q mount cameras. The field of view corresponds to a 60mm lens in 35mm format. The fast aperture combined with the close minimum focus distance of this lens allows for pleasing shallow depth of field effect and is a joy to use.
The SLR Magic x Toy Lens Bokehmorphic allows for creative bokeh effects. The lens is compatible with all E mount cameras. The field of view corresponds to a 42mm lens in 35mm format. It is great for creative bokeh or light painting for impressionistic photography.
All three Toy Lens models will be available from authorized SLR Magic dealers by April 2012.
