Lensbaby’s New Fisheye Lens Now Available

Lensbaby has been very busy. Two weeks ago I blogged about their new Tilt Transformer lens, and now they have come out with a really fun Fisheye lens. If you have never played with a fisheye lens before, you are in for a treat. The angle of view is so wide, you can see up, down, and all around you, taking in much more of what is in front of you that your eyes can normally see.

“The Fisheye Optic’s ultra-wide 12mm focal length and 160 degree field of view captures eye-popping fisheye views from infinity all the way down to 1/2 an inch from the front of your lens. It is designed for use with the Composer and Scout, and can also be used with the Muse and Control Freak* with the purchase of a special adapter available in our webstore.”

I highly recommend Lensbaby products. I have had several exhibitions of my photography using their optics and lenses, including a solo exhibit at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Beginning on November 4th, 2010, three images from my Tunnel series will be on exhibit at Notion Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA, all shot with a Lensbaby.

Take a look at the Lensbaby website and check out their products. If you decide to purchase something, contact me at ginagenisworkshops@gmail.com first for a discount coupon code.

Enjoy seeing in a whole new way.
