All of the Tilt Transformer Specs and Features, plus the following:
specifications
Ships with the Double Glass Optic and optical adapter installed which includes: f/1.8, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/13, f/22 aperture disks (f/1.6 with no disk installed).
specifications
Supports the Lensbaby Optic Swap System, allowing photographers to swap out the Double Glass Optic and swap in Single Glass, Plastic, Pinhole/Zone Plate or Soft Focus
specifications
Optical adapter reduces actual focal length of above lenses to ~40mm (~80mm effective focal length)
specifications
Focus Type: Manual
specifications
Aperture Type: Interchangeable levitating aperture disks
specifications
Minimum Focus: approximately 12” (30 cm) / Maximum Focus: Infinity (and beyond)
specifications
When used with a Nikon mount lens, produces a slice of focus through the image
specifications
Width of focus slice is dependent upon aperture – f/1.4 will produce a very thin slice of focus with abundant blur, while f/22 will produce a very wide slice of focus with just a tiny bit of blur. Extreme tilt at a very bright aperture will make that slice appear even thinner.
specifications
Tilts up to twice as far as standard tilt-shift lenses making it possible to achieve more extreme blur falling off of a very thin slice of selective focus, as compared to the usual slice of focus width and focus fall-off of a typical tilt-shift lens
specifications
Built-in mechanism allows Nikon G lenses to function properly at all apertures. Nikon G lenses do not have an aperture ring on the lens itself. This mechanism allows the aperture to open and close by manually rotating the lens itself.
specifications
High quality metal swivel ball for smooth, fluid tilt
specifications

Available now for Panasonic Lumix G Micro Series, Olympus PEN cameras and Sony α NEX cameras
specifications
The award winning Composer with Tilt Transformer is the newest addition to the Lensbaby Creative Effects camera products line-up, available now for Panasonic Lumix™ G Micro System, Olympus PEN Digital cameras and Sony α NEX cameras. Two products in one, the Composer with Tilt Transformer allows photographers to mount any Nikon® mount lens to their Micro Four Thirds or Sony α NEX camera and tilt up to twice as far as with standard tilt-shift lenses, delivering photos that have a slice of focus through the image, bordered by a soft blur. The Tilt Transformer provides the foundation for the Composer Focus Front. When used together, they become the Composer with Tilt Transformer, for use on Micro Four Thirds or Sony α NEX cameras. This provides photographers with access to the limitless creativity offered by the Lensbaby Optic Swap™ System. The Lensbaby Composer is a manual focus lens based on a ball and socket configuration that delivers smooth selective focus and other creative photography looks with unparalleled ease. Photographers can simply tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a manual focusing ring. The Composer stays in the desired bent position without requiring a locking mechanism. The Composer with Tilt Transformer is compatible with the Lensbaby Optic Swap System* and ships with a Double Glass Optic installed. Additional optics can be swapped in and out, providing photographers with a wide range of creative effects including: Single Glass, Plastic, Pinhole/Zone Plate, and Soft Focus. *Includes the Composer Focus Front Optic Adapter that allows Lensbaby Double Glass, Single Glass, Plastic, Soft Focus and Pinhole/Zone Plate optics to focus to infinity when used with the Composer with Tilt Transformer. As Micro Four Thirds and Sony α NEX cameras do not have an internal mirror, the lens is closer to the sensor than with SLR cameras, requiring this adapter. The Fisheye optic is not compatible with the Composer with Tilt Transformer.
