  • Excerpt: As a photographer, I am constantly looking for fun new gadgets to spark more creativity in my photography. I’m sure I’m not the only one who sometimes falls into a comfortable pattern of shooting that—while effective—can get a bit monotonous. To avoid these patterns, I constantly try to keep my mind thinking creatively and looking for ways of sparking that inspiration to try something new.

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. It appears to be aimed at the youthful and adventurous photographer, so epz oldie, Peter Bargh, takes a look to see if he can be rejuvenated by the lens.
  • 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.
