This thing looks wild, it’s an attachment from Lensbaby that is optimized for macro photography..

Lensbaby announces today the availability of its third Creative Effects SLR camera lens, the Control Freak. The Control Freak joins the Composer and the Muse in the Lensbaby lens line-up. The Control Freak is the new evolution of the Lensbaby 3G, and is optimized for macro photography with extensive focus control. The Control Freak is compatible with the Lensbaby Optic Swap system.

The Control Freak Specifications

  • Priced at U.S. $350
  • Provides film makers with the unique ability to shoot both free-hand and locked down
  • Allows for extremely close focus (zero inches in front of the lens) when used with the Fisheye Optic (a special adapter is required to use the Fisheye Optic with the Control Freak)
  • The Fisheye Optic when used with the Control Freak has limited functionality (when focusing from about 3 inches to infinity, the metal rod knobs will often be visible due to the Fisheye Optic’s 160 degree angle of view) and is therefore best suited for macro work. An adapter is required to use the Fisheye Optic with the Control Freak
  • Compatible with the Lensbaby Optic Swap System
  • Focus Type: Manual
  • Ships with the Double Glass Optic installed which includes the following apertures: f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16, f/22
  • Aperture Type: Interchangeable levitating aperture disks
  • Minimum Focus: approximately 9” (23 cm) / Maximum Focus: Infinity
  • Size/Weight: 3.41” (8.66cm) high x  3.49” (8.86) wide / 6.9 oz. (195.6 grams)
