Lensbaby Trio 28

My good friends at Lensbaby recently sent me a Lensbaby Trio 28 to try out on my Fuji X-T2.

The Lensbaby Trio 28 is a neat little lens with a revolving front element featuring a selection of three lenses which give the effects of some classic lensbaby optics, Sweet, Velvet and Twist.

Lensbaby Composer

I’ve had a selection of Lensbaby optics over the years and have enjoyed the creative incentive that they give.

Not every subject benefits from the optical qualities of Lensbaby but its fun to try different subjects to see the effects that can be achieved.

The Lensbaby Composer range of lenses was capable of some quite strong effects especially when the moveable front element was tilted to the more extreme angles.

The Lensbaby Trio 28 is light and compact, almost like a pancake lens. It probably won’t win any design awards as it’s looks are a little reminiscent of a Lomo type camera. The quality and the sharpness of the results tell a different story.

The lens is focused manually using the large marked focus ring. I suggest setting up the Fuji with a focus selection assist such as focus highlight to aid focus especially when using the ‘Sweet’ lens setting where critical focus is more important.

While the Trio 28 replicates the looks of Lensbaby optics of the past the effects are more subtle than the original lenses. The Sweet Mode is the easiest to jump straight into and the Bokeh is quite pleasing
