New Lensbaby OMNI filter system waves a wand over your images… literally

Lensbaby Omni

Forget your boring regular filters. Pack away those polarisers. Imaging innovator Lensbaby has a whole new concept in filter effects that makes all those Cokin special effects filters of the 1980’s (remember those?) look tame. 

The new Omni system comes with three effect ‘wands’ that clip magnetically to the filter adaptor, and can be moved around freely. You use them individually or in combination and shoot through them to produce all manner of prismatic light flare effects.
