According to the manufacturer, a manually assembled lens with a metal body is designed for many types of photo and video shooting, including shooting landscapes and street scenes. A characteristic feature of the Velvet 28 is the “variable shine effect” familiar to users of other Velvet lenses. The advantages of the new items also include the ability to shoot on a 1: 2 scale.

The Velvet 28 lens comes in Canon EF, Nikon F, Canon RF, Nikon Z, Sony E, Fujifilm X, and Micro Four Thirds mounts.
