An interesting lens has recently joined Lensbaby family: Burnside 35 is a f/2.8 wide-angle adaptation of the Petzval lens design, with an effect slider that operates as a second internal iris. DIYP spoke to Craig Strong from Lensbaby about this creative lens that lets you change the swirl in the bokeh, as well as adjust the vignette and center brightness.
Lensbaby has announced a new creative lens today: Burnside 35. It’s a 35mm f/2.8 wide angle adaptation of the Petzval lens design. Burnside 35 adds swirling bokeh and vignette around your subject, with an effect slider that operates as a second internal iris. This slider lets you can change the shape and amount of swirl in the bokeh; all while adding or removing vignette and center brightness. Something like Instagram filters in real life.
