Product Highlights
  • Part of Optic Swap System
  • Includes: Plastic Optic
  • Pinhole/Zone Plate Optic
  • Single Glass Optic

This Lensbaby Optic Kit is part of the Lensbaby Optic Swap System, and includes the Plastic, Pinhole/Zone Plate, and Single Glass optics.

Lensbaby has developed a line of different "optics" that can be interchanged with the Muse, Composer, and Control Freak lenses. This system provides artists with an almost unlimited variety of looks and styles to capture their unique visions.

The Plastic Optic provides the softest, dreamiest look in the line-up of optics. It results in photos that have a very ethereal look, with abundant chromatic aberration.

The Pinhole/Zone Plate Optic lets you shift easily back and forth from the pinhole mode to the zone plate mode by simply sliding a toggle inside the optic. In either pinhole or zone plate mode, this optic insert achieves soft focus, dreamy images that are equally sharp from edge to edge.

The Single Glass Optic features a single uncoated optical glass element. It is ideal for fine art, portraiture, black and white images, or any shot requiring a subtle, soft, dreamy effect.

        Comments about Optic Kit for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

        I use the Lens Baby line of products primarily for video applications.

        These versatile little guys adds so much style to my game.

        Most of the effects could be accomplished in post production. However, I find I'm more creative and the end result is more organic feeling when using the Lens Baby line of Products.

        • Creative Photography

        Comments about Optic Kit for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

        This kit includes three "fun" optics for the lensbaby and gives you some very creative results. The plastic optic will give you images that are similar to a Diana or Holga toy camera, the pinhole optic gives you that look of your old shoebox camera that you made in art class, and the single glass optic gives you a slightly softer look than the double glass lensbaby optic. The price is great since you get three optics for just a little more than the price of two. Excellent value for a great product.

          Comments about Optic Kit for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

          I use these lenses with my Lensbaby Composer to extend the creative possibilities of the LB itself. I get out the Lensbaby when I need to explore subjects differently. The lens exchange system is very simple to use with each lens coming in its own container. The tool required to swap the optics is built into the lid of each container, no additional tool required.

            These optics are a BARGAIN and a BLAST

              Comments about Optic Kit for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

              If you own a Lensbaby composer lens I think you will definitely want to buy these other optics. I have been very, very pleasantly surprised by the images I can get from these little add-ons -- and they are barely $33 each. That's just amazing.The single-glass lenshas been great for people shots and black and white, the plastic lens has a fantastic "dream effect," and the zone plate/pinhole is great for long-exposure photos (a tripod an absolute must). I am having a blast with these optics. Long-term it might get tiresome carrying them around in their little jars and using the tool/lid to swap them in an out, and using the magnet tool to change apertures, but so far even that part is fun. This is definitely mad-scientist photography stuff, and I for one think the entire Lensbaby line is genius.

              Comments about Optic Kit for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

              It is a great tool to express your creative side. I am a hobbyist and do not use them too often, these are lenses for very specific subjects and compositions. In my opinion they excel in providing this moody feel to fall pictures. Overall - nice thing to have if you like experimenting. In my opinion plastic optic a little to soft.
