Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f1.6

$50 per day
  • Manual focus design with a smooth, dampened focusing movement is complemented by engraved focus distance indicators.
  • A 1:2 maximum magnification ratio and 5″ minimum working distance enable working with close-up subjects.
  • The unique singlet-doublet-singlet lens design renders imagery with a soft, smooth, and glowing image quality reminiscent of mid-20th century portrait lenses.
  • Portrait-length 56mm focal length is compatible with full-frame format sensors as well as APS-C format sensors, where it will provide an 89.6mm equivalent focal length.
  • Fast f/1.6 maximum aperture offers extensive control over selective focus and shallow depth of field, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
  • Softness can be controlled by stopping-down the lens: when stopped-down to f/16, the image exhibits a smooth quality with greater central sharpness.
  • Black all-metal lens barrel with engraved aperture and focus markings.
  • Manual exposure control requires stop-down metering and manual setting of the aperture.
