    Lens Baby (or similar) on the AF100

    I am about to shoot a short which has some dream-sequence/flashbacks. I want the shots to be quite abstract and the characters in the shots are ideally meant to be unrecognisable.

    I was thinking of doing something in-camera and then the Lens Baby came to mind. I've never shot with it although I think it might be suitable.

    My camera-kit is in my signature. What would people recommend I use? Are there things I need to look out for?

    Heres a link to a video I made with a colleague who shot some of the footage (b cam ) with a Lens Baby on a 5D.

    No reason not to mount one to the AF102.

      I ended up buying a "LensBaby Composer with Tilt Transformer".

      It has a Micro 4/3rds mount and can be used on it's own or the lens fitting can be removed and Nikon lenses can be used instead. It's quite a neat bit of kit. Here's a video I made from the roof of my building.

        I was thinking of getting that same LensBaby Gary. How much did you pick it up for?

          It was 286. (I just used Google and found the cheapest reputable company - I got it from 'The Digital Camera Shop UK')

          Nicely packaged and presented and although it's partly made of plastic it's pretty sturdy.

            i purchased a TILT transformer from lensbaby and haven't really had a chance to use it yet. i wondered is there any difference in the "minuturizing effect" that the composer offers differently from the TILT? isn't it just additional accessories that can be added to the COMPOSER?

            thanks.

              I used a Lensbaby ControlFreak on the AF100 for a film back in Feburary...worked great.

                Cool look! I shot a couple music videos on the R1 with a Lens Baby. Unique look, and I like the way you used it.
