Sol 45 is available for Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E, Sony A, Fuji X, and Pentax K cameras.
Sol’s 45mm is the full frame focal length. Please consider your camera’s crop factor (often 1.5 or 1.6) in calculating the equivalent field of view on your camera. At a 1.5x crop factor Sol 45 has a 67mm field of view and a 1.6x crop factor it has a 72mm field of view.
Sol 22 is available for Micro 4/3rds cameras which include Olympus and Panasonic. These cameras have a 2x crop factor. Sol 22 will have an effective focal length of 44mm on these cameras.
Below are images taken of the same scene using Sol 45 and 22 with the cameras in the same position.
Tilt Sol to move your focus around the frame. Tilt in the direction you want to focus.
Sol lenses have a secondary creative feature called Bokeh Blades. These blades sit out of the way of the lens. Simply move them in front of the lens to create texture in your bokeh. The textured bokeh effect will be most noticeable when you have bright points of light in the out of focus areas in your image.
Images below are taken with the Bokeh Blades engaged. The effects range from subtle and simple to powerful and pronounced depending upon the distance between your subject and background, as well as how much detail there is in the background to take on the texture from the Bokeh Blades.
