Product description

Style:Twist 60 Optics

Free your subjects from their background with the 60mm f/2.5 Twist 60 Optic. A new addition to the Optic Swap System, Twist 60 Optic will help you discover the essence of your subject - adding magic and emotion to your portraits, still life images and more. Twist 60 Optic helps you draw extra attention to your subjects by separating them from their background with delicious twisty, swirly blur. True to an 1840 design by Joseph Petzval, this lens reveals striking separation between subjects and their background, a quality that modern lens designs lack. Shooting at bright apertures maximizes the effect and produces a subtle vignette that calls further attention to anything you place within the large central area of focus, for a timeless, vintage look. As you stop down the area of focus gets larger while still creating subtle swirling at the edges. Twist 60 Optic is recommended for use on full frame cameras only and for best results when used in a tilting lens body, keep the lens pointed straight ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more useful than I thought it would be!
By Forrest Whitesides on October 4, 2016
Against my better judgement, I bought this quirky little lens optic to use with a recently purchased Lensbaby Scout lens base (which is perfectly straight and does not do the whole pseudo-tilt/shift thing that the Composer models do). A lot of Lensbaby gear has a reputation of being so oddball and soft-focus as to be rarely useful for all but the most hipster of purposes. I am glad to say that this is not the case with the Twist 60 Optic.

The swirly background effects that make this lens really cool are most apparent with the aperture at maximum (f/2.5). This effect, which looks a lot like a selective "radial motion blur" in Photoshop, drops off rather quickly as the lens is stopped down from wide open. By about f/5.6, it's almost gone, in fact. Shooting this lens at f/8 or greater produces surprisingly sharp (in the center) images; much sharper than I was expecting. So the Twist 60 can serve as something approaching a standard short telephoto if there is enough light to stop it down. Bonus!

To get the maximum radial blur effect, you really have to set up your shot. Patterned and/or complex backgrounds that cover nearly the entire frame behind the subject produce the most obvious and pronounced results. As with most things, experimentation is the key to getting good results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for vintage looking photos.
By Astanax Tahlmarine on January 5, 2018
I learned of the Petzval Lens on Amazon for around $600 that had drop in aperture blades. The only problem, was one photographer complained the drop in aperture blades fell out and could easily be lost. This Lensbaby Twist 60 popped up as a recommended alternative at half the price on Amazon. It didn't need the drop in aperture blades. For a small town event that happens once a month, I decided to try Wild West photos, complete with a faux box camera. The gold ring matches the brass accents nicely, and the swirl effect in the photos really helps with the vintage feel. The sepia tone came straight from the Canon that I have. One photographer friend of mine said that the Lensbaby isn't necessarily sharp, which lends itself to what I am trying to accomplish with Wild West costume and fake revolver shown here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tolles Objektiv für außergewöhnliche Bilder
Reviewed in Germany on November 12, 2018
Ich habe das Objektiv erst neu und bin aber jetzt schon ganz begeistert. Ich habe einen Composer und die Linseneinsätze haben durch die ungewöhnliche Konstruktion meistens Spiel und wackeln etwas. Aber das beeinträchtigt die Fotos nicht, meiner Meinung nach jedenfalls. Wichtig ist, dass man mit einer großen Blende fotografiert, damit der Effekt stark hervortritt. Ich denke, dass es wichtig ist, Abstand vom Hauptmotiv zum Hintergrund zu schaffen. Bei zu geringer Distanz bleibt der Effekt auf der Strecke. Mein Beispielfoto zeigt einen schönen starken Effekt am Rand. Ich habe es mit einer Vollformatkamera gemacht.

5.0 out of 5 stars ich liebe es
Reviewed in Germany on October 8, 2017
Ich habe lange mir gehadert ob ich es mir zulegen soll aber keinen einzigen Moment bereut nach dem Kauf. Ich benutze das Objektiv an der Sony A 7II und durch Focus Peaking ist es sehr leicht damit den richtigen Schärfepunkt zu finden. Besonders bei Blende 2.5 / 2.8 bekommt man diesen wunderbaren Twist Effekt. Für aussermittige Portraits nicht so richtig geeignet, da sich der Effekt ja dann schon bemerkbar macht. Aber wie man im Foto sehen kann ist es perfekt für Mittige, zentral fokusierte Objekte geeignet. Was soll ich sagen - für mich ist es perfekt und am Vollformat immer wieder einen Kauf wert.
