    Sol45 Rocks

    Tried two times and it is a really creative lens that I can tell I would not be able to replicate with a normal lens. I am wanting find other pictures where I honk this lens will shine.

    Improved since its original iteration

    Having used the original lens baby, I came back to lens baby now with its wide range of special effects lenses (which I love), to find that I really want to use the Sol 45 as it embodied the original lens baby in that the focal plane was adjustable freely in a 360 manner. It did not disappoint as it offered much improved controls and ergonomic usage, with fine tuning of the focus after shifting the focal plane. All in a great buy and great experience!

    Totally Fun!

    I have only been able to shoot with this a few times as I just bought it, but the images that it has captured so far have been quite dreamy and totally fun!
