Lensbaby LBT60C overview

  • 1Description

Draw attention to your subject by creating a smooth subtle swirl to your edges with the Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic with Straight Body available here with a Canon EF mount. This optic is compatible with the Optic Swap System and performs best when used with the included straight body.This full-frame 60mm f/2.5 lens features an internal 12-blade diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas. You can manually change the aperture from f/2.5 to f/22 utilizing the dial on the front of the lens and you can manually focus on subjects as close as 18".

When shooting at a wider aperture, the Twist 60's swirled effect places more emphasis on your centered subject in full focus. As you stop down, the center area gets larger allowing you to bring more of your image into exact focus. The Twist 60 offers 46mm front threads for any filters you would like to use to further enhance your image.

The Twist 60 works best and is recommended for use with full frame cameras. Much of the swirled blur gets lost when using the optic with an APS-C sensor.

    Lensbaby LBT60C reviews

    Twist 60 Optic with Straight Body for Canon EF is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this lens! Love this lens! It takes a bit of practice to find the sweet spot of focus vs swirley bokeh, but the results are stunning. This is a new favorite lens. Yes, manual focus can be challenging ( I do street photography) but I'm learning to focus through the viewfinder and trust my eye. Of course you can also focus with live view and see the results. This lens gives wonderful, sharp subject focus, nice separation of background, and vivid color. It's also light, gorgeous design too. Anyone interested in this lens should also google Perzval who originally invented the design. This lens is great for portraits, especially with a backdrop of light and color. It also makes great nature and still life shots. shot some landscapes with it too, they were very painterly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another nice product from Lensbaby. I have most of the Lensbaby products and on first impression this new one will be another good product from them. Right out of the box I was taking pictures that matched their examples. The focusing was clear through the viewfinder. I found that backgrounds of foliage was turning out better for me but the instructions say you need to adjust the aperture for varying effects. This will just be something that will take practice. So far I am very happy with the purchase and am looking forward to using it a lot more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful effect lens The Twist 60 produces a nice blur swirl around the center of the frame. The effect really looks great with foliage in the background, but not so great elsewhere. A full frame sensor is a must along with wide open shooting. The lens is very sharp when manually focused accurately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great specialty portrait lens I was looking for that swirly Bokeh characteristic of the Petzval lens when I saw that the folks at Lensbaby had brought-out this beauty. It's a sharp-focusing, flat-field lens that is easy to manual focus and provides accurate metering when used in the AV mode on my Canon DSLR. The swirly Bokeh effect can best be achieved against a sparkly background with a wide open aperture at f2.5, with a very shallow depth of field. Even though I already own a Composer Pro lens body, I decided to get the fixed lens body to keep orientation straight, and not tilty. The Lensbaby products I own are all manual, simple lenses with no electronics, which is great for when I want to be creative and take my time making photographs. Because of their simplicity, they are much less expensive than if they had all of that technology added-in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does one job, but it does it beautifully I've only had this lens a few days, but it's going to become a new favorite. The thing one has to understand is there is a sweet spot for focus and you have to find it. When the brass colored element is extended and the aperture is wide open to 2.5, I zoom with my feet or make tiny focus adjustments on the black focus ring. After a bit of practice, one gets to know how to find that sweet spot quickly. It makes gorgeous images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Effect Great for close up shots; Like it also for video; The manual focus only is a minor issue since it's not that difficult to focus manually; It's not for rush moments but is definitely amazing when you have time to create.
