Lensbaby LM-10 Sweet Spot Lens for iPhone announced
For those of you out there who have not heard about Lensbaby before, they happen to be the ones behind creative effects camera lenses for DSLRs, mirrorless and motion picture cameras. This time around, they are back with another addition to their growing portfolio, which would be the release of the LM-10 Sweet Spot Lens for iPhone. This happens to be the company’s very first lens that was specially designed for mobile devices, and to see the iPhone receive it first compared to other smartphone makes does not surprise us the least bit. With the LM-10 Sweet Spot Lens for iPhone, iPhone shutterbugs will gain the ability to create Lensbaby’s signature depth-of-field look, the “sweet spot” of focus, surrounded by gradually increasing blur.
This is made possible thanks to the magnetically-attaching creative effects accessory lens that will be sold on an exclusive basis on popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter.com. Considering how photo sharing has become extremely popular in addition to photo filter apps really taking off big time, smartphone users tend to be on the lookout to figure out new ways to unleash their creativity. The Lensbaby Sweet Spot Lens for iPhones would be able to offer such an opportunity, being a fun and easy tool to make photos pop on social media channels.
The LM-10 Sweet Spot Lens for iPhone is a patent pending lens that will play nice with the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c, allowing photographers to focus on a single spot of sharp focus in their image surrounded by gradually increasing blur. This remains their most popular effect in their existing product range, and it is no surprise.
All that you need to do is adhere one of the Lensbaby-provided super-strong, adhesive-backed stainless steel rings around the phone’s lens, where the magnets located on the ends of the lens would then allow it to be attached as well as removed from your iPhone without breaking a sweat. Thanks to a magnet located on both sides of the lens, shutterbugs can use other magnetic mobile phone accessory lenses too, including wide angle, macro, telephoto, polarizing filters, the works, on their Sweet Spot Lens to alter their focal length.
