Additional information:

Lensbaby Optics don't function separately, you need use lens "holder" (Control Freak, Composer, Muse, Scout) and put this optic element into the "holder".

Lensbaby  Pinhole / Zone plate optic is very interresting and creative - optic is without lens!

You can switch between Pinhole and Zone plate

Pinhole is very small hole with f/177(!) and Zone plate is f/19 hole with foil (transparent foil with small black rings) - see optical scheme.

Lensbaby is full manualy, crazy and very creative system - you can change focal length with shift/tilt efect. 

 

LENSBABY OPTIC SWAP SYSTEM - HOLDERs:

SCOUT - easy fixed holder (without shift/tilt efect or focal length change function)

COMPOSER - holder with manual shift/tilt efect

MUSE - holder with manual shift/tilt efect and focal length change function

CONTROL FREAK - holder with manual shift/tilt efect and focal length change function and lock mechanism

- All these "holders" are compatible with "Optic Swap System" (you can change optics inside)
