Lensbaby Obscura

OBSCURA 50

Lensbaby Obscura envelopes photographer and lens in an elegant dance between light and dark while bringing unique flare and image artifacts that aren’t possible to achieve in-camera with any standard camera lens.

Lensbaby Obscura

OBSCURA 16

Photographers and creators who connect most with using an Obscura are those who embrace working with fewer choices and are willing to challenge themselves to redefine what it means to create photographic art.

Lensbaby Obscura

OBSCURA OPTIC

The Lensbaby Obscura comes in two versions. A 50mm Pinhole/Zone Plate/Pinhole Sieve optic - for our Optic Swap System and a standalone 16mm Pinhole/Zone Plate/Pinhole Sieve pancake lens for mirrorless cameras.

The Obscura Experience

The Lensbaby Obscura is unlike those other pinhole 'lenses' you may have seen. Technically, it doesn't have a hole but many layers of chrome deposited on glass. This keeps your sensor clean and protected unlike a standard pinhole lets in.
