Get close & stand out! Sol 45 is a versatile tilt lens with a spot of focus effect that’s great for all kinds of photography – and an awesome tool for macro! Add a set of macro filters and you’ve got yourself a creative tool that allows you to get close and most importantly – stand out!
It’s as simple as Tilt. Focus. Shoot! Sol 45 is a 45mm fixed f/3.5 selective focus lens that creates a tack-sharp circular area of focus surrounded by smooth blur and bold bokeh. Simply choose what you want to emphasize in the frame, bend the lens toward it, rotate the front-most ring to bring your subject into focus, and shoot.
Sol’s tilt mechanism is designed to always keep the area of focus within the frame, whether you are shooting on full frame or APS-C sensor cameras, making it even easier to capture more keepers. Sol 45 also features a center-locking ability. Twisting the lens into the lock position lets you know when your spot of focus is in the center of the frame.
For those looking for more in-camera creative control, Sol 45 features two bokeh blades. These hinged blades add subtle lines and texture to the bokeh – ensuring that no two images will look the same. Simply bring the blades into the lens’s field of view and then rotate them in any direction – horizontal, vertical or diagonal.
Lightweight and compact, Sol is designed to be your go-to creative companion, no matter where your journey takes you.
