400 for something you can do in Photoshop. I wish I had more money than sense.

Lensbaby started off as cheap fun optics but the price is not really doing it for me anymore.

Don't let the Woolybills hear you say that. They love their LBs. Smile

Personally, I hate the effect anyway. I thought they were supposed to be a cheap alternative to tilt/shift lenses, but I haven't yet seen one used as such.
