Dulens Apo Mini Primes: Vintage Look in a Modern Lens

If you want to achieve a unique look for your next project, then the DULENS APO Mini Vintage Series Primes may be worth considering. Our set of lenses is available in 3 focal lengths: 43mm, 58mm, and 85mm.

One of the standout features of these lenses is their special coating that smooths out skin tones and adds a halation effect, which can create a softer-looking image compared to other lenses. It’s a noticeable vintage look that won’t be right for every project, but can really add that extra old school quality when needed. 


Additionally, shooting wide open with these lenses produces a rainbow flare that can add another unique touch to your footage or photographs. However, it's important to note that these lenses are not necessarily designed to produce a clean, sharp image when used wide open. Instead, they are more focused on creating a specific aesthetic.

The DULENS APO Mini Primes are also lightweight and compact, making them easy to use on a wide variety of setups. They weigh between 510-550g depending on the focal length and all feature a common 82mm front and the ability to use a 72mm filter. Additionally, the lenses come with user-interchangeable PL and EF mounts, which gives users the flexibility to switch between different camera systems.


It's worth noting that DULENS has plans to release these lenses in other mounts and focal lengths in the future, so keep an eye out if you're using a different camera system. Check out some of the visuals these lenses create in the example videos and keep them in mind for your next project that needs a little vintage flair.
