Oh say can you see, by this lens' soft blurry light . . . .
 Lens Characteristics
Americana belongs in the family of variable-focus lenses. It requires the OS5 operating system or later.
Unlike its sister lens Loftus, the tilt-shift effect is diagonal in nature, meaning the soft focus areas are on opposing sides of the image, either in the corners or along the edges. Which edges (left/right, top/bottom) or which corners seem to be selected randomly.
Americana also comes with a turquoise color cast.
It has been observed to have a slightly longer processing time at higher resolutions.
The selected film frame is excluded from the tilt-shift effect.
 Suggested Combinations and Uses
The tilt-shift effect is best complimented with any color frame-only film or monochrome.
The turquoise color cast can be compounded with the Cadet Blue Gel flash.
It has been observed the Pop Rox flash may negate the tilt-shift and color casting effects.
The gauzy border effects lend themselves to framing mid-range and close up subjects, ideal for stylized portraiture.
This lens was created for New York Fashion Week 2012 in conjunction with fashion photographer Chiun-Kai Shih, the namesake for the Chunky lens.
