LensbabiesLensbaby Fisheye optic : Lensbaby showcases at PMA 2010 a new addition to the Lensbaby Optic Swap System - the Fisheye Optic. The new Lensbaby Fisheye optic is available for use with the Lensbaby Composer and Muse. The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic allows photographers to turn their Lensbaby Composer or Muse into a fisheye lens by swapping out the installed optic and dropping the new Fisheye Optic into the lens. This optic’s six element multi-coated optical design features an ultra-wide 12mm focal length capable of capturing a 160 degree fisheye angle of view from infinity all the way down to one-inch from the front of the lens. The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic features a system of interchangeable aperture disks, with possible aperture settings ranging from f/4 to f/22.

To change the aperture, users unscrew the top element of the Fisheye Optic and replace the aperture disk using the included Aperture Tool. “With the introduction of the Lensbaby Fisheye optic, Lensbaby is moving beyond the realm of selective focus to offer photographers a Creative Effects SLR lens system, with 6 different optic options. The Lensbaby Fisheye optic, unlike earlier Lensbaby optics, does not feature a sweet spot of focus,” said Craig Strong, Lensbaby President and Co-Founder. “The Fisheye Optic transforms a Lensbaby Composer into a fun fisheye lens. The Lensbaby Optic Swap System now offers three selective focus optics and three optics that provide even more options for creative photography.”

Lensbaby Fisheye optic delivers extremely wide angle view
Due to the extremely wide angle field of view, photographers who use a full-frame camera will generally see a black circle around almost the entire image, and smaller APS-sized sensor shooters will see black at the corners of their images. This black edge is typical for standard fisheye lenses. However, the Lensbaby Fisheye Optic features a creative lens flare effect that causes the edge areas that would ordinarily be black to glow with color whenever there are bright light sources in the image. The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic lens flare effect is particularly apparent when shooting with a full frame camera.

Lensbaby Fisheye optic price & availability
The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic is different than previous Lensbaby optics, with a much flatter field of focus than the Double Glass, Single Glass, and Plastic Optics. The images created by the Fisheye Optic are sharp throughout the image at darker apertures. While the Lensbaby Fisheye Optic creates some edge blur at brighter apertures, it does not feature the Sweet Spot of sharp focus and dramatic blur that are trademarks of the Double Glass, Single Glass, and Plastic Optics. Instead of bending the lens, photographers typically will point their Lensbaby straight ahead to achieve a classic fisheye look. The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic is available for $149.95 (MSRP).

About the Lensbaby optic swap system
The Lensbaby Optic Swap System now features six interchangeable optics that can be swapped in and out of Lensbaby’s Creative Effects SLR Camera lenses, the Muse, the Composer, and the Control Freak. Each optic creates a different type of creative image, giving photographers unlimited freedom to achieve their unique artistic vision. The Double Glass, Single Glass, and Plastic Optics have a curved field of focus that allows the photographer to control depth of field in a unique way by creating a Sweet Spot of sharp focus that is surrounded by beautiful blur. The other 3 optic options, Fisheye, Soft Focus, and Pinhole/Zone plate all feature a flat field of focus and create distinctive looks.
