View Full Version : Vintage Soft Focus Lenses

13-Apr-2000, 02:46
In the March/April issue of ViewCamera Magazine there was a brief article by Jay Allen about using Vintage Pictorial and Soft-Focus Lenses such as Portarit Ekta rs, Vitax/Veritos, Imagons etc...

In the Article there was a reference to a book titled Pictorial, Soft Focus and Portrait lenses from the Past. I looked everywhere including amazon.com and cann ot find it. Any tips on finding this book? I believe the author of the article a lso wrote the book.

Thanks! Steve

I think you have to order it from him. He has a website at www.escape.to/jays where you should be able to get in touch with him to order it. DJ

There's a very interesting website that explores the use of old box camera and other lenses for soft focus. It's fairly lavishly illustrated, and well worth a look.
