Lensbaby Launches the Edge 80

Lensbaby-edge80.jpgThe folks over at Lensbaby have released their latest optic for the Optic Swap system. The Edge 80 is, as the name implies, an 80mm lens that's compatible the Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout and Control Freak systems.

Pointed straight ahead, the Edge 80 is sharp from edge to edge. The fun comes when you start tilting the lens to create horizontal, vertical or diagonal focal slices. Changing the aperture controls the amount of blur you'll get on your photo - a simple adjustment that can be made on the fly.

"Like a great lens mounted on a view camera bellows, you can make spectacular 'straight' photos with the Edge 80 pointed straight ahead," says Lensbaby president and co-founder Mark Strong. "Then, when you want a different look altogether, fluidly tilt the lens to create a razor sharp slice of selective focus through your image."
