Excerpt: It isn't the most sophisticated piece of equipment, but it does exactly what it says its going to. Having to depress the lens to get your selected focus is difficult to get use to, and keeping it steady to hit the shutter is something you need to practice with.
Excerpt: I bought the Lensbaby Spark for Canon EF when it was featured in the B&H DealZone a few weeks ago. I probably wouldn't have made the purchase if I was paying full price, but the deal was so good I couldn't pass it up.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Years back I had a bellows camera that allowed some excellent effects. and now the Lensbaby Spark lets me get the same effects with my DSLR. While this is an intro level lens, it nonetheless lets you explore Bokeh and off-center focus plus it is fun to play with.
Excerpt: This is an easy to use tool for creating tilt/shift perspectives or intentional distortions. To focus you pull back on the accordion-style lenses and to create tilts you bias the tilt in any desired direction. Fairly intuitive to use and creates fun, reasonably medium quality effects.
Excerpt: After seeing an online workshop using lensbaby len's with flowers. I really wanted to try it out. Now they have higher end lensbabylens but I wanted to see If it was as cool as it seemed. This was affordable, fairly easy to use but didn't get as close to the flower as she did.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, For The Inner Artist, Lightweight
Excerpt: Fun lense to use, press to control the focus plane. The bokeh can be improved by using an extension tube (12mm).I would have liked a wider aperture: F/5.6 is a bit dark and does not help for a nice bokeh.See my review on[@]here: http:...
