Hello Darko,

Your Lensbaby should have shipped with a small plastic tool on a key chain along with two disks with holes in the middle. The plastic tool has a wedged shaped end, which you can slide underneath the rubber washer that you will see when you look into the front of your Lensbaby. Simply slip the narrow end of the tool underneath the inner edge of the rubber washer, and pry the washer out. Then you can tip over the lens to get the aperture disk to fall out. Drop your desired aperture in and put the rubber washer back into place on top of the aperture disk to hold the disk in place. You can use the rubber washer all by itself, without any of the aperture disks, to achieve a f2.8 aperture that will be diffused and almost impressionistic.

Your User Guide has an illustrated description of this process, as well as pictures of the different apertures and their effects. If you do not have this guide, or your Lensbaby shipped without the tool and additional apertures, or you have any further questions please send me an email at sam@lensbabies.com or call 503-516-5569.

Thanks for asking!

Sam

Thanks for prompt answer. It's OK now - I changed insert with your explenation, but I didn't receive any user guide. Do you have user guide online or can you e-mail me pdf file. Thanks in advance.

I also did not receive a User Guide when I received my lensbaby today. Where do I obtain it? Thanks.

Hello Don, We are sorry you did not get your User Guide. Apparently we left them out of a few boxes. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. We are happy to send a pdf version via email and a hard copy version via regular mail to anyone who is missing their User Guide. Please just send an email to Sam@lensbabies.com and I will take care of you.
