Lensbaby just Got A Whole Lot Better – The Composer System

Sure you know about Lensbaby: the tilt/shift lens that fits onto your camera body. Looked kinda like a medical contraption that you would wear like a leg brace with series of pins, rods, a tube and discs.
It works great, don’t get me wrong.
And the Lensbaby folks made the special unit that was used in sequences of the Oscar nominated movie “The Diving Bell and The Butterfly”. You should check that one out.
Smart people here.
And they just made the popular Lensbaby system even better and easier to use. The new system is called “The Composer”, and joins the rest of the line. Take a look:

What excites us here is the addition of that pinhole attachment. Crazy right?
“Let’s put an antiquated lens option onto an expensive DSLR”. Well , we are looking forward to doing just that.

Visit their site to see some examples of the possibilities.

Yes, you do have a choice of implementing selective focus in post via Photoshop. But isn’t it a good thing to make a decision at the time of shooting?
