Bellows Lens head Schneider Kreuznach Pyrite 4.5/90mm


For the Universal Bellows BAL-F, NOVOFLEX offers the special lens head - Pyrite 4.5/90 (formerly known as Apo-Componon 4.5/90) - by Schneider Kreuznach. The lens head is apochromatic and digitally corrected, and it comes with a fixed mount (pre-installed) for easy attachment to the BAL-F bellows system. The package also includes the NOVOFLEX SON37 lens hood to prevent stray light.

With the BAL-F bellows, focusing from 1:1 to infinity is possible with any camera.

The Schneider Kreuznach Pyrite 4.5/90 lens offers impressive flexibility when used with cameras of different sensor sizes, ranging from Micro Four Thirds (MFT) to APS-C and full-frame sensors, as well as for use with the BAL-F Universal Bellows System.

Whether you are duplicating slides or engaging in reprography, this lens delivers remarkably sharp and detailed images in any shooting situation. It is particularly suitable for reproducing flat originals as it exhibits no loss of sharpness or field curvature. The aperture setting is stepless but can be locked in any position.
