Sure, the Muse looks and acts like the Original Lensbaby. But, like the Composer and the Control Freak, this little baby comes with Lensbaby’s new Optic Swap System—offering artists an almost unlimited variety of looks and styles to capture their unique visions.
All Lensbaby lenses bring one area of a photo into sharpest focus with that Sweet Spot surrounded by gradually increasing blur. Photographers focus the Muse by compressing the lens and move the sweet spot by bending the flexible lens tubing.
The Plastic optic blurs and diffuses in a dreamy way that Holga™ and Diana™ camera lovers will especially appreciate. The Muse uses the new Optic Swap System - four interchangeable optics for different effects:
Double Glass: sharp and crisp
Single Glass: vintage camera feel
Zone plate: real trippy!
