Lensbabies selective focus SLR camera lenses bring one area of your photo into sharp focus, with that sweet spot surrounded by graduated blur. You can move the sweet spot to any part of your photo by bending the flexible lens tubing.
The Lensbaby 3G SLR lens for Canon SLR Cameras combines an old-fashioned bellows camera with an up-tight tilt-shift lens, and the 3G allows photographers to lock the Lensbaby in a desired bent position simply by pressing a button. Then, using a traditional barrel focus mechanism, you can do fine focusing and precisely place the sweet spot of sharp focus before pressing the shutter release. Lensbaby selective focus SLR camera lenses take photos with one area in sharp focus, with that sweet spot surrounded by graduated blur. You can move the sweet spot of sharp focus anywhere in the photo by bending the flexible lens tubing.
The Lensbaby 3G features the same low dispersion, high refractive index, multi-coated optical glass doublet and the same flexible tubing as Lensbaby 2.0, but adds three focusing rails that emerge from the camera mount and pass through the focusing collar. A trigger button on the focusing collar releases three pins that engage the focusing rails and lock Lensbaby 3G in a bent position. Once Lensbaby 3G is locked into place, additional fine focus can be achieved by turning the barrel focusing ring, which moves the optic in and out like a normal manual focus lens. Also, in the locked position, you can make small adjustments to the placement of the sweet spot of focus by turning any combination of the three focusing rails.
While the Lensbaby 2.0 is a good choice for fluid, photojournalistic shots, the Lensbaby 3G plays well with pros who require precise focusing, complete control, and repeatability. Other features include:
- Focal length: About 50mm
- Minimum focus: 12 inches
- Apertures: f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22
- Aperture type: Interchangeable levitating aperture disks
- Automatic light metering is possible by shooting in aperture priority mode for almost all digital and film SLR camera bodies

This is the one I first learned on, sweet spot and blur. At first it was a learning curve, especially on how to hold it and push the shutter button. But as time went on it became easier, so easy that you can squeeze, tilt, and focus in a snap. Lock the lens if you so please, and use the adjusting rods for that fine focus, or just shoot on the fly.
If you like the bellows type lenses, this one comes with the Double Glass 50mm, which is a great all around lens. Though I have more of the Lensbaby collection in my camera bag, I am not sorry I own this lens. Shooting on the fly is fun. And for macro work you can fine tune with the adjustment rods. Of course, you have to have the macro lens kit.
Great product, lots of fun. What else, but 5 stars.
