Simple and Creative

FMPhotography, B&H Photo
24 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Want to make your own creative bokeh kit for the lensbaby instead of buying the one they sell, then this is it. Simple blank disks. Very easy to cut with shaped hole punches. Also easy to cut with exacto knife if you dont have those. Works just like the originals.
  • Pros: Cheaper Than The Kit, Easy To Use, Get More Than The Kit

  • Summary: I thought when i ordered these that I would need special tools to cut the disks but I was wrong. These can be cut with a simple x-acto knife or a swiss army knife (what I used).

Add's to the fun

  • Summary: I saw this demo'ed at the local camera store and can't wait to give it a try myself. I have made several patterns for my other lenses with cardboard and a filter holder, but this gives me a chance with the lensbaby to do the same thing.

Good in concept, not so good in reality

  • Summary: The idea of creating your own aperture rings is quite good in theory. However, it is quite difficult to actually cut the shape you want. You have to be really skilled in crafts and arts if you want something that looks at least semi-decent.

Cheaper's not always the way to go...

W. Brzozowski, Amazon
27 May 2011
  • Summary: Unless you intend to make your own custom cutouts by hand, it's actually cheaper to go ahead and buy the Creative Aperture Kit #2 which has nine ready-to-use custom disks. Though there are paper punch tools you can buy to cut custom shapes from the blank disks, the ones I priced at the local...

Very Cool!

Neon Mike, B&H Photo
21 July 2010
  • Excerpt: A little tricky to get used to but you'll have a blast when you do! Very cool effects and being able to create your own design is awesome. These discs can be punched with paper punches to create unique shapes in hightlights in photos.

Scrapbooking your second hobby?

East of North, B&H Photo
8 February 2009
  • Excerpt: These blanks are meant for you to create your own aperture shapes (rather than the standard Lensbaby circles -- not so standard for most lenses!). These shapes create interesting 'bokeh' style effects, especially in nighttime shots where there are sharp variations or small points of light.
  • Pros: Creative, Easy to use, Good Value
  • Cons: Easily Scratched, No container, Not durable
