This is another low cost toy. Mine is the very basic Lensbaby Muse – the ultimate manual model. Everything is manual.
I took some time to learn how to control it – squeezing the tube to focus far objects and pull it to take marco photos. The images from it is quite different from merely large aperture lenses.

Tilting the focus to the left corner.
Frankly, it is quite difficult to get a sharp focus. The lens does not have any feedback signals to the camera. The only focusing kit is my eye. There are sometimes surprises when I don’t know what to expect.
Thanks for reading.
