Blackwing 7 Primes

Blackwing 7 lenses from Tribe7 represent an entirely new range of tuned optics for large format cameras. Blackwing7 optics exhibit unique imaging properties which arise from the introduction of controlled distortion during the development and manufacturing processes. This lens tuning allows parameters such as sharpness, contrast, roll-off, spherical aberration, field curvature, edge halation and flare to be modified to provide sets of curated optics. Many of the design cues for these primes originate in optics manufactured during the 1930 - 1960s.
 
Our set of Blackwing 7 Primes are all tuned T - Transient. These lenses, the middle tuning of the three options, have a profile which further softens the roll-off to the edge of the frame and provides increased edge detail halation. T lenses are  designed to capture a slightly softer, artistic image, with a higher degree of light reactivity and flaring characteristics are harder and more prominent.
