SAMPLE PHOTOS

DESCRIPTION

A family of Soviet lens «Helios» was very popular in the USSR. Despite the fact that the auto focus had not been invented yet, and that lens was manual (with manual focus), lens Helios is still popular among amateur and even professional photographers.
One of the most popular models of this manufacturer was lens Helios-44-2. They were produced at the Belarusian Optical-Mechanical Association and the Krasnogorsk mechanical plant. According to preliminary calculations, there were about three million pieces produced in Soviet Union.
Soviet engineers decided not to reinvent the wheel and based their lens on the famous German Carl Zeiss Jena «Biotar 2/58″. The optical design was modified and supplied as a staff completing for plastic Soviet camera «Zenit-ET», «Zenit-10″.

SHARPNESS OF PHOTOS

The lens demonstrates excellent sharpness in the center of the frame especially at apertures of f/2.0 and f/4.

DISTORTION

Barrel distortions are not observed. In general, the same optical design of this lens is of high quality.

BOKEH

One of the most important characteristics of this model is bokeh. The lens takes pictures with a stunning twisted bokeh, which for artistic expression can easily compete with the overpriced modern optics of  venerable manufacturers, and in some aspects may be even better.

AUREOLE AND LENS FLARE

Lens flare should theoretically be suppressed due to the special multi enlightenment on the lenses. However, lens glare appears while shooting in the sun.

CHROMATIC ABERRATION

Chromatic aberration is slightly visible in the pictures

Having Helios 44-2 , you may  get  vibrant and sharp images. Lovely, unique bokeh makes your shoots stunning and amazing. It  looks  like paint strokes in the pictures of artists.  Absolutely ideal for portraits and street photography.
The  best purchase for those photographers who appreciate quality and affordable price.

It forces you to be creative!
