Portland, OR –September 22, 2011 – Lensbaby announces today the newest addition to the Lensbaby Creative Effects camera products line-up, the Lensbaby Movie Maker’s Kit featuring the brand-new Composer Pro PL with Sweet 35 Optic, for use on PL mount cameras.
“The more creative tools filmmakers have at their disposal, the more creative their footage,” Says Craig Strong, Lensbaby Co-Founder and President. “The new Composer Pro PL comes loaded with the freedom and versatility of the Lensbaby Optic Swap system and puts a huge range of creative options at the fingertips of filmmakers. We can’t wait to see the unique and powerful footage created by motion picture artists around the world.”
The Lensbaby Movie Maker’s Kit is a complete creative solution for filmmakers looking to add unique effects to their footage, in camera. Conveniently packaged into a rugged Pelican case, the kit contains two Lensbaby lenses for use on PL mount cameras (Muse PL with Double Glass and Composer Pro PL with Sweet 35), as well as one Composer Pro with a Canon mount for use on Canon’s line of DSLRs that shoot video.
This kit also includes a wide range of interchangeable optics and accessories designed to provide the filmmaker limitless aesthetic and creative options at a variety of focal lengths. Now, with the addition of the Composer Pro with Sweet 35 to the Lensbaby PL line-up, filmmakers will have access to the improved metal swivel ball design and refined focus mechanism of the Composer Pro, delivering ultra-smooth focus and tilt control.
Filmmakers can achieve a wide range of effects in-camera with the Movie Maker’s Kit. The Sweet 35, Double Glass, Plastic, and Single Glass optics can be used to create different quality selective focus effects, where one area of the image at a given depth of field is in focus, and other areas at the same depth of field fall away into a beautiful blur. The Fisheye, Soft Focus, and Pinhole/Zone plate Optics allow further in-camera creativity. Visit the Movie Lens page for more information on the complete kit, and to watch sample footage and see a list of award-winning movies and TV shows containing scenes shot with Lensbaby lenses.
