Trioplan – Video


A legend in focus:

We are bringing back the legendary Meyer Optik Trioplan lens, known for its fabulous 'soap bubble' bokeh after almost a century. In today's times of ultra-sharp lenses and pixel battles, we want to enable photographers all over the world to experience the true essence of photography and bring the charm of the last century to today's images and videos. The soap bubble bokeh brings the photographer - and viewer - on an adventure that photo editing simply cannot recreate.


Get close up to the updated Trioplan f2.8/100 lens

The original Trioplan was created by Hugo Meyer in 1916. It was based on the Cooke-Triplet, designed by Harold Dennis Taylor in 1893. The Trioplan was one of the first affordable lens constructions that allowed a relatively high optical correction, an extraordinary sharp center, and a high maximum aperture. When used wide-open at f2.8, especially when exposed to backlight, the Trioplan shows its famous character, its bokeh, known as the soap bubble bokeh.

Why the Trioplan’s images are so beautiful?

Modern lenses are typically excellent in terms of reproducing reality but the Trioplan is something completely different. Think of it as a special brush used by a painter, as it is a lens that creates art. The Trioplan is brilliant for many uses: nature, portrait and macro shots. Beside its wonderful and unique soap bubble bokeh, which appears in backlight situations, when it is used wide open at f.2.8 it achieves a balanced sharpness with a wonderful soft texture in out-of-focus areas.
