  • Excerpt: Lensbaby Spark lets your camera color outside the lines. It mounts directly on your Canon or Nikon and focuses manually when you squeeze it toward the rear while watching the sharp, sweet spot move around in the viewfinder.

  • Excerpt: The Lensbaby Spark is pretty much totally fun to play around with if you are into mid to advanced level photography. The Lensbaby Spark is a DSLR lens that focuses in the center, but then blurs at the edges to create an artistic effect. At $80 I was interested in seeing what the Spark could do.

Lensbaby Spark Review

ePHOTOzine
12 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Spark is the latest creative optical lens from Lensbaby. Like other Lensbabies, it has a flexible bendy tube that you push and pull (they say squeeze) to distort the focus points in your photo and create whacky results.
  • Pros: Easy to adjust, No locking so quick and resposive, Threaded to accept accessories, Circular bokeh
  • Cons: Harder to get good photos than a normal lens, Plastic filter thread could easily be cross theaded

  • Conclusion: Откровенно: Искорка не понравилась, не разгорается пламя. Можно долго спорить на тему ценообразования в общем и применительно к продукции Lensbaby в частности, но явный посыл «Жалуетесь на цену, так нате вам!» не привлекает совершенно.
