Lensbaby Pro Effects Kit Comes With Everything You Need

Lensbaby just introduced the Pro Effects Kit, a collection of Lensbaby products to get you started with Lensbaby photography. The kit contains the Composer Pro module, the Sweet 35 and Edge 80 optics, an 8mm and a 16mm macro converter, a microfiber lens cleaning cloth and a bag to tuck it all away. With two focal lengths that cover everything from moderate wide-angle to short telephoto, the tiltable Composer Pro module and the macro converters, this kit really contains everything you need. From landscapes to protraits, from flower details to product shots, or just for some creative experimenting — there isn’t much that can’t be done with this kit. However, it comes at a price. At US-$ 750, it is still better value for money than buying each product seperately, though.
