In Review


"No two images will be exactly alike with this lens. The options to place your focal point with selective blur and add another layer of texture using the blades, makes me want to explore even further."

Gerri Jones

 

"Getting creative with lens effects gets you to revaluate how you create moving images. The limitations of the fixed aperture created space to experiment. "

Matt Carter

 

"I feel free to look at things differently when shooting with the Sol and throw our any preconceived notion of the "rules". I just experiment, shoot, and enjoy the process of creation."

Jim Nix

 

Tilt. Focus. Shoot!

    happy with the sol 22

    i used the different lensbaby optics for years now : the sweet 50 & edge 50 , sol 45 and lately the sol 22 , on my Fujifilm camera and PEN-F. But now i want to switch to just one brand : Sony A-serie. So my question is : do you plan a SOL 22 for Sony A camera's? Thank you

    Love something different? Very COOL lens! Goes everywhere on my travels...

    I always love to shoot something different. This light and portable lens goes everywhere on my travels to capture those unique shots. Generates lots of inspiration on other days around town. Love the tilt shifting and moving focus effect of this lens. Very simple to manually focus with the focus peaking turned on in my Panasonic G9. Looking forward to trying other lensbaby lenses.

    Lord Have Mercy!

    I thought I couldn't be anymore in love with a lensbaby than I was with my Trio but this lens rocks my world! It gives me the control that i wnated and needed with my photography. I love having the ability to pinpoint focus on something! Keep up the good work Lensbaby!
