There are no Leaf shutter Lensbabies unless you want to make one yourself.

Lensbabys are for focal plane SLR cameras .....because there are so many and not too many folks want to hack their expensive leaf shutter lenses into an optic that is aberrated, but it can be done......:O

As to getting bigger image sizes in your posts, post your images at 600X800 pixels and the Lensbaby Forum software does it for for you .

i saw this post Nikon D700 with a Custom Tilt-Shift Rig on PetaPixel about someone who used a bellows with an old Kodak lens on his Nikon. Maybe it works with a (modified) Hasselblad AutoBellows. It wil take some work but if it works, its a lot cheaper than the original Flexbody.

All you need to make your Bender work with a Hasselblad is a leaf shutter that connects to the camera .

The problem is that no one wants to destroy a Hassey lens to make a Bender .

For medium format film Bending I use a Pentax 67 body that uses a focal plane shutter . The shutter is in the body not the lens like the Hassey 500 camera.

Lensbaby made a lens for Pentax 67's too, but times have changed and digital cameras have rendered film and most medium format cameras to the back of the pack .

Anyone interested in this topic can use search the LB forum archives to see my old posts on Medium format Bending and DIY Bending lenses.

Mamiya focal plane medium format cameras are easy to make Bender lenses for too and the new ones have digital backs in 645 available......

I like using my tiny Nikon D40 and all my Lensbaby toys to Bend with so I stopped making custom Benders.....but it was fun making one off stuff + I've either bought or adapted every optic I own to my Nikon digital bodies to play with !

Too many toys......not enough time.......nothing's impossible if you put your heaRt and mind into the idea :)
