With retro photo filters like Hipstamatic and old tech cameras all the rage, here's something a bit more authentic. A technical collaboration between the latest in digital camera technology with a lens likely older than your grandparents, photographer Timor Civan had a 1908 Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat lens attached to his Canon DSLR. The video above showcases an unaltered view of what the setup produced [warning, video contains NSFW elements].

Here's the odd couple setup that produced the dreamy imagery. And check out some of the still photos Timur Civan and the lens-camera combination produced here. Sure beats those retro plastic cameras and iPhone apps, if you ask us.
