Lensbaby Lens Sets overview

  • 1Description

A trio of lenses to pique your creative interests, this Lensbaby Twist of Velvet Pro Lens Kit from B&H includes the Velvet 85mm f/1.8 lens, Velvet 56mm f/1.6 lens, and the Twist 60 Optic with Straight Body, all for Canon EF-mount DSLR cameras.

  • Lensbaby Velvet 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Canon EF

    A unique short telephoto with distinct classic appeal, the Canon EF-mount Velvet 85mm f/1.8 from Lensbaby produces a mid-20th century-inspired image quality that is well-suited to portraiture. Characterized by a smooth, glowing aesthetic, this lens's softness can be controlled by stopping down in order to produce a range of effects from soft and dreamy to sharper and crunchier at smaller apertures. A 12-blade diaphragm also contributes to the lens's aesthetic, and helps to produce a smooth bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field imagery. Additionally, the manual focus design affords a working distance of 9.5" with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:2 to benefit working with close-up subjects.

    Short telephoto portrait-length lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 136mm equivalent focal length.
    Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture affords greater control over depth of field for working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
    Inspired by classic portrait lenses from the mid-20th century, this lens is designed to produce an ethereal glowing quality with soft, smooth tonality that is well-suited to portraiture.
    Softness can be controlled by stopping-down the lens: when stopped-down to f/16, the image exhibits a smooth quality with greater central sharpness.
    A working distance of 9.5" along with a 1:2 reproduction ratio suits working with close-up subjects.
    Manual focus design with a smooth, dampened focusing movement is complemented by engraved focus distance indicators.
    A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality that is ideal for selective focus imagery.

  • Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f/1.6 Lens for Canon EF (Black)

    Reminiscent of classic 20th century lenses, the Canon EF mount Velvet 56mm f/1.6 Lens from Lensbaby produces a uniquely soft, glowing image quality that is well-suited to making expressive and ethereal portraits. The overall softness can be controlled by stopping down the lens while still retaining the smooth tonality of a soft focus lens. Compatible with full-frame image sensors, this slightly longer-than-normal focal length pairs with the fast f/1.6 maximum aperture to excel in difficult lighting and achieve a shallow depth of field with controllable sharpness. Additionally, for increased creative versatility, the lens also offers a 1:2 maximum magnification and a minimum working distance of 5" for macro shooting. Housed within a black metal barrel, this lens also features smooth, dampened manual focus control to further benefit creative flexibility. Consistent with Lensbaby's aim of purveying selective focus capabilities and a unique velvety image quality, the Velvet 56mm f/1.6 is a versatile tool that marries classical looks with contemporary control.

    Portrait-length 56mm focal length is compatible with full-frame format sensors as well as APS-C format sensors, where it will provide an 89.6mm equivalent focal length.
    Fast f/1.6 maximum aperture offers extensive control over selective focus and shallow depth of field, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
    The unique singlet-doublet-singlet lens design renders imagery with a soft, smooth, and glowing image quality reminiscent of mid-20th century portrait lenses.
    Softness can be controlled by stopping-down the lens: when stopped-down to f/16, the image exhibits a smooth quality with greater central sharpness.
    A 1:2 maximum magnification ratio and 5" minimum working distance enable working with close-up subjects.
    Black all-metal lens barrel with engraved aperture and focus markings.
    Manual focus design with a smooth, dampened focusing movement is complemented by engraved focus distance indicators.
    Manual exposure control requires stop-down metering and manual setting of the aperture.

  • Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic with Straight Body for Canon EF

    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 Lens Sets reviews

Velvet 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Canon EF is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped For. The images that come out of this lens are dreamy, beautiful, ethereal. The mechanics are smooth, it feels sturdy in my hand. I'm really pleased. It hasn't left my camera since it arrived.
Date published: 2017-09-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from F Stop Mechanism Not Working Properly! I love this lens, but it will NOT open up to either f2 or f1.8. ALSO, when shooting at f16 in the shade and on a cloudy day, there is STILL so much glow that I find it distracting. In reviewing online photos taken at f5.6 to f16, I don't see the excessive glow I'm getting at these stops. White flowers on a bush look like they've been outlined by a pale green marker. This seems to be a defective lens, and I'm hoping to return it.
