Lensbaby has introduced a new set of accessories that are designed to work with the Lensbaby OMNI filter system that was introduced earlier this year. The OMNI Color Expansion Pack gives you a range of crystals and gels that are designed to give psychedelic diffraction effects to your photos.

The original OMNI system provides a magnetic ring that attaches to the filter mount of your camera's lens. You then attach maneuverable 'wands' or arms, to which you then attach different gels and prisms. The basic OMNI set costs $99.95 / £89 - and is available in two sizes to suit different ranges of filter thread diameters.
