  • Lensbaby Velvet 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Nikon F

    A unique short telephoto with distinct classic appeal, the Nikon F-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 FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, however it can also be used with DX models where it provides a 127.5mm 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 Nikon F (Black)

    Reminiscent of classic 20th century lenses, the Nikon F 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 FX 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 FX format sensors as well as DX format sensors, where it will provide an 84mm 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 Nikon F

    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 Nikon F 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 Nikon F is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good lens This is the first time that I buy a LensBaby and I am not disappointed. I'm used to autofocus so it has taken me some time to get used to manual focus. At very wide apertures the glowy effect is very pretty and at smaller apertures the images look very sharp. I've used it successfully for macro images. And it allows me to get pretty close to my subject. The lens is slightly big, but not too big or heavy. It has a barrel shape and the focus and aperture are controlled using the lens not the camera body. I'm very pleased with this lens and I see myself buying in the future more LensBaby lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too much fun! My wife and I camped in Joshua Tree National Park this past weekend and I took along my new Velvet 85mm lens.� We stopped at the Cholla Cactus Garden to take some photos.�� As I was taking the standard picture of the cholla cacti (maybe the same photo that thousands of visitors take each year) I thought to myself “how boring”.� �I took off my wide angle lens and mounted the Velvet 85.� I started taking macro shots of the cacti and of the many dried flowers in the area as the sun was setting.� �The light was fantastic!� I lost track of the time as I was having more fun taking pictures than I have experienced in decades.� As noted in other reviews, at f/1.8 the depth of field is extremely shallow, even more so when the lens is extended for macro shots.� As everyone knows, shutting down the aperture increases the depth of field, so I had perfect control over the composition.�� If you only shoot in program mode and rely heavily on auto-focus, this is not the lens for you.� If you love the art of photography and like having total control over the image, you have got to pick one of these up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lensbaby Velvet for Soft Focus Lensbaby does as advertised. You get a soft focus with outstanding bokeh backgrounds. Not an easy lens to focus but with some time should come as second nature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenging but fun lens I am still getting the feel for balance of what aperture I want to use vs the overall effect of the lens. So far I have been very pleased with the results, especially in the range of f4 to f5.6 for the types of things I like to shoot.
