Lensbaby, maker of specialty lenses, optics and accessories for single lens reflex cameras, has announced the addition of new macro photography converters for its lens bodies and optics. These macro converters help Lensbaby photographers create close-up, dreamy and artistic photos while blurring out distracting elements.
Available as a set containing one 8mm converter and one 16mm converter, they can be stacked together to make a 24mm converter. Depending on the lens body and optic combination, they allow focusing anywhere from zero to 8.13-inches from the subject. The macro converters can be used in conjunction with the existing Lensbaby macro kit, which features a +4 and +10 macro filter. The new macro converters work with every lens body and optic Lensbaby makes.
Pricing and Availability
Lensbaby's new macro converters are priced at $50. Additional information about them can be found at the Lensbaby website.
