Hi,

I'm new here, I thought my new project, which involves designing new kind of lenses able to achieve interesting effects, might grab your interest.

Here is a link that explain briefly what it could do, and how it can be done.

And here are some examples :

(there is no post-processing apart from white balance and curves)

If you are interested in getting such a lense, please contact me : burmese.z [a] gmail [dot] com
If you know someone who might be interested, give them the .pdf and my email please :)
If you want that kind of effects to be widely used in the near future, help me and spread the .pdf :-)

Thank you very much, I see I'm not the only one thinking of that :-)

The static thing as in the first two examples in your link are known since, the beginning of 20th century. As I said in the PDF, medium format lenses using this could be found litterally 50 years ago. And the effect is a lot better than on the first video, where the customised diaphragm is misplaced in front of the lens, creates loads of flare, etc.

I started to think of that kind of things with a LCD screen few years ago (a little while before Sony Xperia Pureness first apparition on the web, ~2008 I think), I spent the whole time with this thought in mind.
And I think it is now mature enough, I've thought of basically everything, and I only need some fundings to be able to build a great quality prototype in no time. I've thought of a lot of various effects achievable with a dynamic aperture, too, and here is the real innovative thing.



Edit : Sadly I can't edit my initial message, but as you saw, the examples I show there are not innovative themselves, the innovative thing is the ability to dynamically change the aperture, and that's explained in the .pdf.
