Story

Introducing the Neptune Convertible Lens Base in silver for a sleek, sophisticated finish.

With three prime lenses and two aperture mechanisms in one seamless lens system – the Neptune Art Lens System is inspired by the world’s first convertible lens created by Charles Chevalier in the late 1830s and reimagined for modern-day analogue and digital SLRs. This Neptune Convertible Lens Base allows you to connect the aforementioned versatile Neptune Art Lens System to your camera body of choice!

The Best of Two Centuries Combined

The Neptune Convertible Art Lens System pays homage to one of the fathers of photography – inventor of the first ever photographic optic lens, Charles Chevalier. A leading Parisian optician, Chevalier began designing lenses when he was little more than a teenager. In 1835, he designed a lens for Louis Daguerre’s Daguerreotype camera, and the two gave the world practical photography.

Ever the innovator, in the late 1830s Chevalier handcrafted the world’s first convertible photographic optic lens. Drawing inspiration from an 1834 telescope design, the Lunette à Verres Combinés, Chevalier aimed for the stars and invented a photographic lens system that could be taken apart and reassembled to create different focal lengths. Voilà – the convertible lens was born. As photography evolved his concept endured, with more convertible lenses being released throughout the 20th century.

Inspired by the compelling history of the convertible lens, we’ve upgraded and re-defined this classic concept with a host of new creative features to create a comprehensive lens system for a wide range of modern-day analogue and digital cameras.
