This week on DigiDIRECT TV we take a look at the quirky, but surprisingly stimulating Lensbaby Composer pro, with the Sweet 35 & Double Glass optics.
“The refined and enhanced Composer Pro gives you ultra-smooth focus and tilt control and will retain its position after being bent, which makes it easy to use even with one hand. Simply tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a traditional barrel focusing ring. No electronic communication is possible between the camera and the lens. All operation is strictly manual. Automatic light metering is possible by shooting in aperture priority mode for almost all digital and film SLR camera bodies.
The Sweet 35 Optic is a 35mm optic with a 12-blade diaphragm and adjustable aperture (f2.5-f/22) that gives you unprecedented precision control over your selective focus photos–just rotate the dial on the front of the optic to quickly change the size of your in-focus “sweet spot”. This is the widest focal length of any Lensbaby selective focus optics–the Sweet 35 also has close-focus capabilities. The lens can be bent off-center in any direction for different results.
The Double Glass Optic is a hybrid between a bellows camera and a tilt-shift camera. It allows for selective focusing with DSLR cameras. It will bring one area of a photo into sharp focus, surrounded by gradually increasing blur. Effects like blurring, glowing highlights, and subtle, prismatic colour distortions can all be achieved without software manipulations. The lens can be bent off-center in any direction for different results.”
These and the full range of Lensbaby lenses, optics and accessories are of course available at Digidirect.com.au
