This thing rocks!

S. Prokes, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: One of my complaints about the digital world (while I shot and enjoy it) is that it is predictable. This can lead to some pretty uncreative photography. I love how the Lensbaby puts creativity, experimentation, and the random back into photography. It is wonderful.

This puts the fun in photography!!

B. Thompson, Amazon
14 July 2009
  • Summary: I saw this at Photoshop World and was totally intrigued. It has a slight learning curve, but be patient and you'll be fully rewarded! Even tho you can be fancy schmancy with photo's, my little point and shoot ran out of juice this past week at Disney World, so I just switched out a few little bits...

Tricky but fun!

Mate Vasilj, Amazon
11 July 2009
  • Summary: This little guy is a tricky guy to work with but it is fun, I can't imagine a better invested money for something fun. I must add that the price should have included the sturdy case sold separate that I got as well.

The Lensbaby 3G is the coolest tool in your camera bag.

mauigir1, Amazon
18 May 2009
  • Summary: While it isn't for everyone, the Lensbaby 3G brings back a little of the soft and ethereal to digital photography. The selective focus sweet spot gets larger with smaller apertures, deliciously small with the wider ones.

Lensbaby for Nikon

Carol Schilansky "Nature Photographer", Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: This is more fun than technically useful. The fine tuning takes a lot of work to arrive at a commercially usable product. I had fun taking flower closeups and baby face closeups. It is an expensive toy, in my opinion.

Useful for your creative arsenal

Scott Valentine "Adobe Community Professional & Photoshop Author", Amazon
1 May 2009
  • Summary: The review above by C. Zimmerman covers most of what you need to know about the mechanics of this lens. Note that I am reviewing this particular lens, but the new version is called the "Control Freak", and has removable center optics.

My First Baby; Lensbaby

Susan, Amazon
16 April 2009
  • Summary: This was my first Lensbaby, the 3G. I had seen this on some video tutorials and thought this was the only one. I bought it used, like new, so I could save a few bucks. Then I discovered the family of Lensbaby's. As they say, the rest is history.

Cool effect, but cumbersome to use

Warren Harris, Amazon
16 April 2009
  • Summary: This is a really cool product for the effect it achieves. I don't use it a lot, as it's a unique effect that doesn't lend itself to every situation. It's a royal pain to setup and use, very time-consuming compared to any other lens, but when you want this exact effect, it's the only cost-effective...
