Lensbaby Introduces Their New Macro Converters for Limitless Close-Focus Options

If you’re an avid photographer, you’ve probably heard of Lensbaby. Lensbaby is a company that specializes in custom lenses that deliver special creative effects due to their optics. That means that users of the Lensbaby family of lenses will be able to shoot with a variety of creative effects like tilt shifting, soft focus, pin-hole, and fisheye without the use of post production software editing. This allows for much more flexibility while shooting as you’ll be able to do this all in real time.

Today, Lensbaby announced the arrival of its new Macro Converters for their Lensbaby lenses. The macro converter will allow photographers to shoot close-up photographs with the added bonus of blurred edges. This, in combination with their other filters and lenses, can create a wide variety of different effects. The Macro Converter is available now from Lensbaby or any of their authorized retailers for $50. The kit includes a 8mm converter and a 16mm converter which can also be stacked to form a 24mm converter.
