Scout gives photographers a versatile, fun and affordable option for Fisheye photography. The first Lensbaby lens that does not bend, Scout is ideally suited for Fisheye photography because your image will always be perfectly centered. The Fisheye Optic offers two special features - creative lens flare when pointed toward a bright light source, and extreme close focus for a truly unique view of the world around you. Scout is also compatible with all other Lensbaby optics, giving full access to the wide range of creative photography effects offered within the Lensbaby Optic Swap? System. Scout is easy to use - simply compose your image, rotate to focus, and shoot! The Fisheye Optic features a creative lens flare effect that causes the edge areas that would ordinarily be black, to glow with color whenever there are bright light sources in the image. This lens flare effect is particularly apparent when shooting with a full frame camera though it is also noticeable when shooting with APS-sized sensors. To explore this fun, unique effect, point your Scout with Fisheye Optic toward different kinds and colors of light sources. The ability to focus one half inch in front of the lens provides an extraordinary way to explore macro photography.
