These days, camera lenses are available in every shape and size and to fit every budget. From the most basic kit zooms to exotic professional primes, it takes a little practice and technique to get the best results possible.

Lensbaby just announced its Composer lens and Tilt Transformer adapter for Micro Four Thirds and Sony Alpha NEX digital cameras. The adapter doesn’t work with Micro Four Thirds/NEX lenses, though; instead, the Tilt Transformer allows the use of Nikon mount lenses on the smaller cameras, while the Composer is its own dedicated lens for use with the Tilt Transformer. The device is designed for tilt-shift focus, creating small areas of focus in a picture while filling the rest of the frame with bokeh.
