Seems like everytime I find something that is cool and clever, I look at the fine print and see that it’s from Portland, Oregon. Right now I’m too lazy to make a list, but I assure you that it’s true. Anyway, it was with no suprise that when I finally broke down and got the Lensbaby for my DSLR kit, I saw that it was invented in PDX.
Anyway, I’ve been jealously eyeing the ‘selective focus’ features of the lens for some time now, but have been waiting for the right version to come out. I finally got a Lensbaby Composer, which enables you to ‘lock’ your weird focus angle, making for much easier shooting. I’ve started shooting HD test video with some of the less blurry f-stops, and it’s looking great.
