OMNI Deluxe Collection

Lensbaby’s OMNI Deluxe Collection allows you to add colorful flare, subtle reflections and bright stretches of light to your images by shooting through crystals, films and other objects, all while keeping your hands free. This unique and professional system offers control and repeatability when shooting through Lensbaby’s OMNI Effect Wands. Drawing on its extensive experience with in-camera effects, Lensbaby has engineered these Effect Wands to create compelling imagery with your existing prime and zoom lenses.

The Effect Wands magnetically attach to the Filter Ring, for quick and easy positioning anywhere around the front of the lens. The two different sized arms allow you the flexibility to place the Effect Wands wherever you want in front of your lens.

The OMNI Color, Crystal, and Flare expansion packs included in this bundle, combine with the OMNI Creative Filter System to help you introduce color & mood to your imagery organically, while you shoot.

How do I find my filter thread size?

Your filter thread size should be marked on your lens by a ø symbol. For example, if you see a ø62, then your lens has a filter thread size of 62mm. If you can’t find it you can always use a ruler to measure the diameter of the filter thread to determine the size you need (this guideshows you how). Or, try googling, for example: “Canon 85mm f/1.8 thread size”.


Do you sell Filter Rings or Step Up/Down Rings separately?

Yes. You can purchase those here


Can I buy the large size and use other step-down rings to fit smaller filter thread sizes?

Yes, you can if you have step-down rings that go from 77mm (the native size of the Large ring) to whatever your smaller lens filter thread size is.


What lenses does OMNI work with?

OMNI can be used on most prime and zoom lenses with both auto and manual focus, as well as full frame and crop sensor cameras.


Does OMNI work on Lensbaby lenses?

OMNI is compatible with Velvet 56, Velvet 85 and Burnside 35 only.


Will the magnets in OMNI damage my camera gear?

We can confidently say that the magnets used in the OMNI Creative Filter System will not damage any of your camera gear. Most newer cameras, SD cards, phones, and computers have solid state hard drives which magnets do not affect. Our magnets, while strong enough to support the OMNI system, are not nearly the strongest magnetic camera accessory on the market. Magmod, makers of magnetic camera accessories, sharedthis great article and video demonstrating how and why magnetic accessories won’t harm your gear.

Please note that there are some older devices (unrelated to camera gear) that can be affected by magnets, including credit cards, pacemakers, older TVs, older hard drives, and speakers. However, OMNI’s thick felt pouch should shield anything else in your bag (credit cards, etc) from these adverse effects.


What do I do if a Step Up/Down Ring gets stuck to the Filter Ring or my lens?

The OMNI Creative Filter System contains a filter wrench to help you remove if this occurs.

    omni deluxe collection

    this is a fun extension to my photography tool kit. an idea to make the kit even better, put one strip of loop and one strip of hook ( velcro ) on each pouch so they can all be mixed and matched, rather than two strips loop on basic and two strips of hook on all extra pouches. also include both size lens magnetic rings with step up/down filters , just for the deluxe kit. minor tweaks really

    Creative Fun

    I'm really enjoying the Omni System. The multiple prisms and color filters give you endless possibilities to create fun and eye-catching images. The bracket also helps hold the filters in just the right position so you can focus on the aspects of your camera focus. I will add that the prisms and filters work best using back lighting. I look forward to practicing more and creating unique images with this system.

    This will change my photography

    I’ve only been able to use it for one session and I’m hooked. Every slight tweak and different lighting gives such amazing and sometimes unexpected results. Even if you’re just a hobbyist I’d highly recommend. And though it’s a simple concept, the build is very well thought out and simple to use even in the most rushed photo sessions.
