Velvet may no longer be the sartorial fabric of choice for anyone besides Walt Clyde Frazier, but it’s an esthetic you can still channel optically with Lensbaby’s newest lens. Shoot the Velvet 85mm at f/4 and wider (all the way to its widest setting of f/1.8) and you’ll get a “velvety glow” in the areas of the frame that are out of focus, according to the company. Stop down the lens’ 12 aperture blades and the effect will disappear, leaving you with a film-like look. You can focus on objects as close as 9.5-inches from the front of the lens. The full frame, manual focus lens is available for Canon, Nikon, Sony A and E, Pentax K, Micro Four Thirds and Fuji X mounts. It ships with a metal front cap and accepts 67mm filters.
