Lensbaby Omni Creative Filter System

Lensbaby are well known for their cool and quirky lenses but now the company has created a filter system that allows you to create in-camera effects which you'd usually need several different objects for. 

"Add individuality and artistic flair by shooting through prisms and other objects specifically engineered by Lensbaby to create compelling in-camera effects. This is a simple, unique, and elegant alternative to shooting through handheld objects," says Lensbaby. 

The OMNI system contains three magnetic Effect Wands that distort the light as it enters the lens - creating different looks/effects as a result. To use the system, simply screw the Filter Ring onto your lens and then attach one or more Effect Wands to the Magnetic Mounts, with or without an arm. To adjust, slide around a metal track on the Filter Ring. Move, twist and rotate the Effect Wand to change the way the light affects your image.

The Effect Wands include: 

  • Crystal Seahorse – Create flare, reflections and adjust the light's direction. 
  • Stretch Glass – The large surface area of the Stretch Glass allows you to create bright stretches and streaks of light across an image. 
  • Rainbow Film – The Rainbow Film is a diffraction film that creates beaming reflective rainbows across an image in any direction, offset from a bright light source.
