Lensball is a hardened clear crystal sphere used for photography purposes. Because of its spherical effect it shows you a 180° degree view of your surroundings creating a mind-blowing visual effect.
Lensball is made from K9 crystal: A lens-grade, optically clear crystal mostly used in optics and lenses, giving you the sharpest possible image.
The 60mm Lensball weighs 250g (0.55lbs) and the 80mm Lensball weighs 650g (1.45lbs).
The 60mm Lensball pocket makes for a great travel companion. The 80mm Lensball Pro allows you to capture your entire surrounding in full sharpness and the added size makes it easier to get a perfect focus.
Good that you asked, yes! Lensball has a strong magnifying effect, when left exposed to direct sunlight Lensball can start a fire within seconds - always make sure to cover yours with the protective microfiber pouch that comes with in every box.
If you want the entire Lensball to be in focus, you will have to go a bit higher in aperture (f5-9), this takes some getting used to. Additionally, stand closer to your subject than you would normally, everything in the Lensball appears to be much further away than it is in real life because of the super wide angle. Keep in mind that, depending on the look you are after, you might want to switch up your focal length and depth-of-field. Avoid reflections by keeping the Lensball fingerprint-free and optionally use a polarising filter to avoid any glaring. Last, make sure to keep your Lensball away from direct sunlight and avoid bringing the Lensball close to your eyes. For inspiration, check out our Instagram!
Stand close to your subjects. Everything in the Lensball appears to be much further away than it actually is in real life. If your smartphone has a second telephoto lens, use it to create a blurred background, it looks great! Practice by going out there and play around with compositions, you’d be surprised at how amazing quite ordinary sights can appear through the Lensball. Keep your Lensball fingerprint-free using your microfibre pouch, keep your Lensball away from direct sunlight and avoid bringing the Lensball close to your eyes.
