New Lensbaby lenses and optics were released today! The new Obscura is an extraordinary experience crafted in the origins of photography. Photographers and creators who connect most with using an Obscura are those who embrace working with fewer choices and are willing to challenge themselves to redefine what it means to create photographic art. Lensbaby Obscura envelopes photographer and lens in an elegant dance between light and dark while bringing unique flare and image artifacts that arenít possible to achieve in-camera with any standard camera lens.
The Lensbaby Obscura comes in three versions. A 50mm Pinhole/Zone Plate/Pinhole Sieve optic - for our Optic Swap System, a standalone 50mm Pinhole/Zone Plate/ Pinhole Sieve, and a standalone 16mm Pinhole/Zone Plate/Pinhole Sieve pancake lens for mirrorless cameras.
The Lensbaby Obscura is unlike those other pinhole 'lenses' you may have seen. Technically, it doesn't have a hole but many layers of chrome deposited on glass. This keeps your sensor clean and protected unlike a standard pinhole lets in.
The Obscura has 3 effect settings: Zone Plate, Pinhole Sieve, and Pinhole. For the 50mm version, the Zone Plate has an aperture of f/32. The Pinhole Sieve has an aperture of f/64. And the Pinhole has an aperture of f/161. And for the 16 mm version the Zone Plate has an aperture of f/22. The Pinhole Sieve has an aperture of f/45. And the Pinhole has an aperture of f/90. The 50mm optic sells for $179.95 USD. The 50mm standalone lens sells for $279.95 USD. And the 16mm lens for mirrorless sells for $249.95 USD. For more information, visit

What is a Lensbaby?

A Lensbaby is an SLR camera lens. With a Lensbaby lens, you can select one area of your photo to be in sharp focus with a gradual blur surrounding the focal point. You select the focal area by bending the lens.
