Portland, Ore. - Lensbaby introduced macro converters for its
Lensbaby lens bodies and optics.

The macro converters ($50 suggested retail) help Lensbaby
photographers create close-up, dreamy and artistic photos while blurring out
distracting elements, the company said.

"We've created a product that offers even more macro options
beyond our existing Lensbaby Macro Kit, and works with every lens body and
optic we make," stated Craig Strong, Lensbaby president and co-founder. "These
macro converters offer great close-up range, and when mixed and matched with
our existing Macro Kit, provide even more options for creative Lensbaby macro

The macro converters are available as a set containing one 8mm
converter and one 16mm converter, which can also be stacked together to make a
24mm converter.

The existing Lensbaby Macro Kit (which features a +4 and +10
macro filter) can also be used in conjunction with the macro converters with
the double glass, single glass, plastic and soft-focus optics for an even
closer capture, the company said.

The lenses are available now from the company's website and at photo specialty stores.
