Bring your stories to life using three distinctive bokeh effects: alluring soft-focus, classic diffused backdrops or powerful soap bubbles.
Level 1, soft: achieve an enchanting soft focus across the entire frame, with softened light and a slight swirl to create sublime scenes.
Dedicated spherical aberration control knob to seamlessly adjust between aberration effects.
The spherical aberration brings a magical and mysterious feeling I usually like to portray in my photographs. Playing with both the soft focus and the soap bubble effect was a very fun experience.
A dual aperture system lets you use both standard iris-style apertures and special-shaped rear drop-in aperture plates to produce rich and patterned backgrounds at every f/stop.
Level 2, classic: achieve a charming, diffused backdrop that highlights your subject, creating a soft halo around the edges without compromising crispness and clarity.
Create powerful portraits using the combination of aberration control, aperture effects and wide aperture range for unparalleled versatility.
What’s interesting about this lens is it gives you the ability to have contrast of sharp and soft and sharp and bokeh, there’s a whole different layer and dimension that can be applied and used in an artistic way.
Six special shaped aperture plates help to enhance artistic expression and bring extra depth to portraits, transforming them into personalized art pieces.
Level 3, bubble: achieve unparalleled sharpness of the subject set against a breathtaking background blur, illustrated with a distinctive soap bubble texture.
Maximum aperture of f/2.0 for a beautifully shallow depth of field and excellent low-light performance.
A Fully manual lens compatible with all the major mirrorless systems. Use it with your Sony E, Nikon Z and Canon RF mounts to create characteristic imagery.
Multi-coated glass optics allow vibrant colors and light vignetting toward the edge of the frame, helping draw the viewer’s attention to the crisp and focused area of the photograph.
The soft focus just sets this lens apart from any modern lens. Although it is obviously a lens for mirrorless cameras, it brings the analogue vibe to your photos that modern lenses just don’t really have. They feel overly sharp and lack character and intrigue that older analogue lenses had.
Greatly inspired by history our lens references both the ancient knowledge of Ibn al-Haytham and the Cooke Triplet lens design. Constructed using five elements in three groups, more optical aberrations can be corrected than with single elements for a greater variety of effects.
What I liked the most about it was being able to create really unique images. I’ve never found a similar lens, it creates a “glow“ effect in the lights that is almost impossible to achieve when shooting in natural conditions.
The 64 mm focal length hits a sweet spot between the conventional 50 mm and 80 mm portrait lenses, granting photographers the flexibility to capture stunning images in various scenarios.
Modern helicoid focusing mechanism for quick operation and easy integration with filmmaking gear.
Cast an irresistible spell of dazzling light and bring your stories to life with the world’s first full-frame mirrorless lens fully dedicated to spherical aberration control. Paying homage to the enthralling history of a fascinating scientist, Ibn al-Haytham, who lived around 1021 in Cairo, Egypt, our lens offers a visual experience that breaks free from the constraints of standard modern lenses. Optimized for creative photography and videography, the Nour Triplet V 2.0/64 Bokeh Control Art Lens empowers photographers and videographers to capture three distinct image styles in one lens: alluring soft-focus, classic diffused backdrops or powerful soap bubbles.
Nour, (also spelled Noor, Nor, or Nur, Arabic: نور: Nūr IPA: [nuːr]) is a common Arabic unisex name signifying “light“ and “knowledge“.
A Modern Lens for a Historic Mind
You have probably never heard the extraordinary tale of Ibn al-Haytham, a remarkable scientist from an often-overlooked era of progress. Hidden within the sands of time, his remarkable journey through the realms of mathematics, astronomy and physics is a thrilling saga that captivates the imagination. With a fiery passion, he delved into the mysteries of the universe, daring to unravel its secrets. It was his daily observations of the sun’s movement across the rooftops as he traced the intricate curves and angles that held the potential to shape how we perceive the world, that exemplified his deep fascination with the enigmas of light. This fascination eventually led him to the groundbreaking discovery of spherical aberration. Just as al-Haytham was the first to note the existence of spherical aberrations, you will be the first to put spherical aberration control to the test with this creative lens.
Explore Three Levels of Spherical Aberration Control
Unlike most modern lenses prioritizing technical perfection over artistic expression, our lens is designed to take you on a creative journey. You no longer have to limit yourself to a single style. Using a dedicated spherical aberration control knob, users can seamlessly alternate between three levels of aberrations: soft, classic and bubble. Spherical aberration (SA) occurs when the light passing through the edges of a lens focuses closer to the lens than light passing through its center. One of the few aberrations that affect the entire frame, SA causes a gorgeous diffused haze and soft focus effect that causes the frame to ’glow’ when under-corrected. When corrected, it offers a sharp subject against a diffused backdrop, while over-correction results in an extremely sharp subject against a distinctive bubble bokeh backdrop.
Dive into Powerful Portraiture
An incredibly versatile tool, the 64 mm focal length grants flexibility to capture stunning images in various scenarios. Particularly powerful for unique portraits, at every aberration level and f-stop, skin textures are enhanced while maintaining a natural appearance with intricate details. Featuring an iris-style aperture mechanism and six signature special-shaped Lomography drop-in aperture plates for varied bokeh effects, photographers can achieve stand-out shots from as close as 0.6 m and switch between f/2.0 to f/16 in seconds. The unique spherical aberration control lets subjects shine with dramatic separation between the subject and backdrop.
Tell Your Own Story Through Impressive Cinematic Videography
The perfect addition to any filmmaker’s toolkit, the lens offers complete creative control over every scene. Using the aberration control knob, videographers can create powerful transitions, alternating between a soft-focus glow and a sharp three-dimensional effect featuring beautiful soap bubble bokeh. With silent stopless focus and aperture rings, as well as the option to add follow-focus gear rings, it gives total control over any shot to capture the essence of every moment, convey emotions and challenge the viewer with unexpected and stunning cinematographic effects created directly in-camera.
