Tilt-shift photography, where you can straighten perspectives, make objects appear closer, blur elements, or make them look like little toys, looks pretty interesting. But many have not given it a go, due to the rather high prices of tilt-shift lenses, with a proper one costing more than a few thousand dollars.
But Lensbaby's new Edge 80 Optic brings tilt-shift photography to the masses. As long as you own any compatible Lensbaby lens, the Edge 80 Optic will transform your lens into tilt-shift versions of themselves. Compatible with Lensbaby's Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout and Control Freak, the Edge 80 features a 12-blade aperture with an aperture range of f/2.8 to f/22 and a focal length of 80mm. The Edge 80 can also be used as standard lens, so it's use is not limited to tilt-shift photography alone.
