Lensbaby is well known for the creative lenses that they manufacturer for a wide range of cameras. Just last month, they released their new Edge 80 Optic lens, which can offer high-quality straight lens shots or “tilt” lens slices.
Now Lensbaby has expanded their popular line of SLR creative effects camera lens, the Composer Pro, to add compatibility with Micro Four Thirds cameras (including the Panasonic Lumix G Micro System and Olympus PEN systems), Sony α NEX, and Samsung NX cameras.
The Composer Pro, which was originally launched last March 2011, uses a metal swivel ball design and a fine focus mechanism to provide the photographer with smooth focus and tilt control.
“We’re excited to give mirrorless camera shooters full access to the Lensbaby Creative Effects system. With so many photographers opting for these smaller cameras for on-the-go shooting situations, our one lens with so many creative effect options will make a great addition to their set-up.”
— Craig Strong, Lensbaby Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer
