Turn your Lensbaby Composer into a fisheye lens with the Fisheye Optic, part of the Lensbaby Optic Swap System. The Fisheye Optic's ultra-wide 12mm focal length captures an eye-popping fisheye view from infinity all the way down to one inch away.
The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic features a system of interchangeable aperture disks, with possible aperture settings ranging from f/4 to f/22. At f/4 the edges of Lensbaby Fisheye images will be soft. Stopping down to smaller apertures will increase edge sharpness. At f/22 the entire image will be quite sharp.
Due to the extremely wide angle of view, full-frame shooters will generally see a black circle around almost the entire image, and APS-sized sensor shooters will see black at the corners of their images. This black edge is typical for standard fisheye lenses.
However, the Lensbaby Fisheye Optic features a unique lens flare effect that causes the edge areas that would ordinarily be black to glow with color whenever there are bright light sources in the image. This lens flare effect is particularly apparent when shooting with a full-frame camera.
The Fisheye Optic has a much flatter field of focus than previous Lensbaby Optics. The images created by the Fisheye Optic are sharp throughout the image at darker apertures.
The Lensbaby Fisheye Optic has an ultra-wide 12mm focal length and 160° field of view that captures eye-popping views from infinity all the way down to 1" from the front of your lens. The Fisheye Optic is designed for use with the Composer Pro as a part of the Optic Swap System.
The Fisheye Optic gives you a very wide view of the world with its 12mm focal length, plus circular distortion unique to fisheye lenses. You can also get really close to your subject as the Fisheye focuses at 1/2".
The Fisheye does not come with an aperture disk inserted. Without a disk the aperture is f4. This optic comes with 5 aperture disks designed specifically for the Fisheye Optic ranging from f5.6 to f22.
