Lensbaby Composer; Tilt shift photography made easy

Intrepid reporter Cali Lewis from GeekBrief tv interviews Craig Strong, Lensbaby's president and co-founder who introduces a Lens Baby attachment for any contemporary wide body SLR.

Lensbaby is a lens that swivels on a ball and socket connection

" ...that delivers smooth selective focus photography with unparalleled ease. The Composer retains its position after being bent and is easy to use even with one hand. The Composer stays in the desired bent position without requiring a locking mechanism and features a new Lensbaby Optic Swap System. The Composer features a unique manual focus design which requires more rotation to move the optic as you approach infminity. This makes it easier to focus on objects at intermediate and distant depths than regular manual focus lenses."

Towards the end of the video Cali Lewis's Canon5D HD is used to demonstrate how easy the Lensbaby is attached to any compatible SLR.
