The selective focus Lensbaby, which made a name in SLR photography, has a new brother, the Lensbaby 3GPL which is setting its focus on the movies.
Designed to capture motion pictures, the Lensbaby 3GPL is equipped with fixed or flexible â€œtilt and swingâ€ positioning for creative focusing effects on any 16mm or 35mm PL mount movie camera, as well as several PL to video camera adapters such as the P+S Technik.
Like its still camera predecessors, Lensbaby 3GPL allows filmmakers to bring one part of their frame into sharp focus; a â€˜sweet spotâ€™ surrounded by gradually increasing blur. Photographers can move the sweet spot of sharp focus anywhere in the photo by bending the flexible body of the Lensbaby. When not bent, the sweet spot remains in the center of the image with the blur equally distributed around the edge of the image.
