What is the difference between Composer Pro and Composer Pro II?

The differences between the three generations of Composers are incremental improvements – more metal parts, smoother tilt and focus, as well as slightly less tilt in the Composer Pro II (which prevents accidentally tilting so far that nothing is in focus, making it a good thing to have less tilt.)

What is Lensbaby Composer?

The Lensbaby Composer is basically a ball and socket with a lens set installed in the front (ball) portion of the assembly. To move the sharp-focused area around in the frame, the lens elements are pivoted on the ball. Friction on the ball is controlled by the rear black-ribbed ring that fine-click-stops into place.

What does a Lensbaby Spark do?

Lensbaby has announced the Spark 2.0 lens and its design draws inspiration from the original Lensbaby launched in 2004. The new lens allows you to adjust the ‘sweet spot’ of focus by physically bending the lens across a wide range of angles. You can adjust where the spot of focus is across the entire frame.

Which unusual effects are possible with the Lensbaby lens?

The unique features with a Lensbaby lens is essentially this: it has a spot in the middle that is in focus and an intense outward blur from there. In some instances it behaves much like a tilt-shift lens, especially when you are photographing architecture.

What does a tilt lens do?

What Is a Tilt-Shift Lens? A tilt-shift lens (also called a perspective control lens) changes the position of a lens in relation to a camera’s image sensor. When the lens tilts so that it is no longer parallel to the camera’s image sensor, it shifts the plane of focus and alters the depth of field.

Is tilt-shift good?

A tilt-shift lens is useful for photographers who shoot architecture, landscapes, or who wish to have greater control over their camera’s depth of field.

Is 35mm or 50mm better for portraits?

Which prime lens is better 35mm or 50mm? The 35mm lens focal length is more versatile when shooting indoors for its wide field of view and capturing more scenery when traveling than the 50mm lens which is more zoomed-in making it difficult to use indoors but ideal for traditional, headshots and portraits.

What should be your first prime lens?

In other words, if you want to achieve close to a 35mm look but you’re shooting on a crop sensor body, you should probably opt for a 24mm prime lens. Because of the crop factor, a 24mm prime lens will capture images with closer to a 38mm focal length.
