Lynny have announced the creation of two new lenses, called the Lynny Rota and the Lynny Verta.
Cameron Texter, inventor of the Lynny lenses, has admitted that the days of the old Lynny lens are most likely over, but that the future looks promising for the company. "The focusing mechanism in these new lenses is one of a kind", he enthuses. "The lenses comprise of around 13 individual parts, which I designed from the ground up. They're not based on any other design."
The Lynny Rota tilts left and right, but doesn't use a shift mechanism. Instead, it uses just a tilting mechanism, which enables the lens to tilt side to side and is secured with two screws. The base of the lens has a rotating mechanism which allows it to rotate circularly, allowing you to move the effects around, all while not unscrewing the lens from the camera.
It features a unique focusing system, compromising of outer and inner focussing rings. The new lenses also allow you to use any two accessories at the same time, thanks to the 37mm inner and 58mm outer threads.
The Lynny Verta rotates, but does not tilt. Both lenses use the M42 system, which means the lenses can be used on almost any camera using interchangable mounts.
Texter has told ePHOTOzine that he also has ambitious plans for the future. "We're working on two new brands of lenses, called Leinx and Lenkir. Leinx will be an alternative to standard lenses for the likes of Nikon and Canon. Lenkir is already in the making, and what optics are available will depend on whether it becomes a creative effects lens or a sharp lens", he said.
The two new Lynny lenses and the Lenix lens should be available in summer 2013. For more information, take a look at the Lynny lens website
