Lensbaby 0.42x Super Wide Lens

Lensbaby 0.42x Super Wide Lens

Designed for all Lensbaby lenses

Las Vegas, NV (March 2, 2009) PMA Booth #M230 – Lensbaby announces today a new 0.42x Super Wide Lens for use with their new line of selective focus lenses – The Composer™, The Muse™, The Control Freak™ and their companion Lensbaby Optic Swap System™ consisting of Double Glass, Single Glass, Plastic, and Pinhole/Zone plate interchangeable optics.

Like the current line of Lensbaby accessory lenses (which includes a 1.6x telephoto, 0.6x wide angle, and +4 and +10 macro filters), the 0.42x Super Wide Lens simply screws onto the front of any Lensbaby lens via its standard 37mm screw thread. The 0.42x Super Wide Lens converts Lensbaby optics from a 50mm focal length to an ultra-wide 21mm focal length.

Lensbaby President and Co-Founder, Craig Strong, stated, “Many Lensbaby users are shooting with cropped-sensor digital cameras, and are looking for a wider angle of view. With this new 0.42x Super Wide Lens, we are offering the widest angle-of-view yet for selective focus lenses in one of the lightest, most compact 0.42x conversion lenses available. The 0.42x Super Wide Lens can be used with any Lensbaby lens and optic combination. My favorite use of this accessory lens is to combine the 0.42x with the Lensbaby Pinhole/Zone Plate optic to provide expansive views and the widest pinhole and zone plate photography currently possible with an SLR camera.”

Product Pricing and Specs:
Converts Lensbaby optics from a 50mm to a 21mm focal length
• Compatible exclusively with all Lensbaby lenses using the Double Glass, Single Glass, Plastic, and Pinhole/Zone Plate optics as well as Lensbaby 3G, Lensbaby 2.0, and the Original Lensbaby
• Attaches via 37mm screw thread onto the front of any Lensbaby for ease of use
• In contrast with the Lensbaby 0.6x wide angle lens, the Sweet Spot of focus shrinks in size and becomes very small and precise with enhanced blurring and prismatic color shifts on the edges of the photo
• Measures 2” W x 1.75” H (5.1cm x 4.4cm)
• Weighs 2.4oz (68g)
• Lighter and more compact than industry-standard 0.42 wide angle accessory lenses
• Will vignette when not pointed straight ahead on a full frame camera

All Lensbaby lenses provide photographers with a new way to control depth of field by bringing one area of a photo into sharpest focus with that Sweet Spot™ surrounded by gradually increasing blur. By bending the Lensbaby lens, the photographer moves the sharp area around the photo for customized creative effects.

Lensbaby Introduces New Lenses

Three Unique Selective Focus Lenses


Lensbaby announced today the release of The Composer™, The Muse™ and The Control Freak™. The new Muse and Control Freak replace the current Lensbaby 2.0 and Lensbaby 3G lenses. However, the Composer, is their latest concoction, which is basically a new selective lens system that is based on a ball and socket configuration, which is said to deliver a smoother selective focus.

When using the Composer, it can retain its position after being bent and it can be easily used with one hand. You do not have to squeeze the lens to focus, but just tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a barrel focusing ring. The Composer stays in the desired bent position without requiring a locking mechanism and features the new Lensbaby Optic Swap System. The Composer's barrel focusing ring has a unique design that becomes more sensitive (requiring greater rotation to move the optic in and out) as you approach infinity, making it easer to focus on subjects from 10 feet to infinity.

Lensbaby Muse PL Mount Lens

Lensbaby Announces Muse PL Mount Lens

New Selective Focus Lens for Movie and Video Cameras

lensbabyLos Angeles, CA Cine Gear Expo Booth #T7 – Lensbaby announces today the new PL mount version of its selective focus (SLR) lens, the Muse. The new Muse PL features the Lensbaby Optic Swap System™ and is specially designed for use with PL mount motion image capture cameras. The new Muse PL will compliment Lensbaby’s existing motion picture camera lens, Lensbaby 3GPL, which will remain in Lensbaby’s product line.

The Muse PL allows for highly creative focusing effects on any 16mm or 35mm PL mount movie camera, as well as several PL to video camera adapters such as the P+S Technik, Redrockmicro M2, Brevis35, Letus35, and SGpro.

Like its still camera counterparts, the Muse PL allows filmmakers to bring one part of their frame into sharp focus; a ‘Sweet Spot’ surrounded by gradually increasing blur. Photographers can move the sweet spot of sharp focus anywhere in the photo by bending and compressing the flexible body of the Muse PL. The Muse PL creates the sweet spot of focus by using optics that feature a curved field of focus, giving cinematographers a unique way to control depth of field that is different from what is possible with existing tilt-shift lenses. Cinematographers can control the width and depth of field by changing the aperture disk installed in the lens.

“With the Muse PL, a cinematographer is able to control depth of field in novel ways, moving a circular area of sharp focus around the image with a spontaneous and very creative ‘focus-and-tilt-on-the-fly’ technique,” said Craig Strong, Lensbaby president and co-founder.

The Muse PL features the Lensbaby interchangeable Optic Swap System, and ships with the tack sharp Double Glass optic installed. For even greater creative freedom, additional optics are available as optional accessories. When a photographer or videographer wants to change the optic in their Lensbaby Muse, they simply pop the optic out and drop in a different optic using an Optic Swap Tool supplied with the new optic. Each optic has different features and image qualities, allowing photographers to choose the look that fits their creative style.

Lensbaby Muse PL sample clips that demonstrate the different optical effects of the Optic Swap System optics are available now at .

“With the new Muse PL mount lens and the Lensbaby Optic Swap System, photographers and videographers are now able to choose a specific optic that expresses their individual artistic vision and create truly unique imagery,” said Strong.
