The Original captures images with glowing highlights, subtle prismatic color shifts and the trademark Lensbaby graduated blur. The Original Lensbaby, with its raw and imperfect or soft and ethereal images, shines for portrait, black and white, and artistic photography.
The Original Lensbaby features a single, uncoated optical glass element which is quite sharp at f/5.6 and f/8 but becomes softer and slightly diffused at f/4 and more diffused and impressionistic at f/2.8.
Focus your Original Lensbaby by compressing the focusing collar with your fingertips. Move the sweet spot of sharp focus around the picture by bending the lens. Most photographers are getting rewarding shots after a short practice period.
The Original Lensbaby features a single, uncoated f/2.8 optical glass element and can achieve aperture settings of f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, and f/8. Aperture disks are held in place with a rubber gasket which is easy to remove with the aperture removal tool that comes with your lens.
