  1. What was the external recorder you had attached to your camera?

  2. Always glad to see a new video! Question: I just got myself a sony a7iii and only have budget of $1100usd for a lens, I shoot more wedding/corporate/car events. I heard good reviews on the tamron 28-75mmf2.8 do you have any opinion on this lens ? Or do you recommend something else?

    Thanks in advance 😁

  3. itsKEVO it is a great lens but for pro wedding photographer , I think you should think twice .
    I got one and eventually sold it because it is just not right . 28mm is not that wide …. I still have to use my 16-35mm if I need a wide shoot .

  4. @Panha Veng I was concerned about the 28mm as well. I know the 17-28mm f2.8 tamron is also coming out. Any opinion on that one ?

  5. I do love lensbaby they make some epic lenses, I’m really excited to try this set.

  6. Cool effects and as always we love your videos. The system is a bit expensive for something you can do for cheap with a little ingenuity or completely free in post.

  7. Wasn’t Dan tempted to film the intro and outro with the filters on his lens? πŸ˜„

  8. great video as always! πŸ™‚ i’m thinking about getting this but have seen on the website that they have the lensbaby omni for small and for large systems. which one did you use?

  9. I would love to see more male photography videos, the ones you did previously were awesome!

  10. itsKEVO I would personally wait and get the GM24/70 f2.8 man, I guarantee it’s absolutely worth it!! I rented the tamron 28-75, it’s not bad or anything but i miss that 24mm focal length

  11. @Faded.Visuals thank you so much! I’ll wait as well. I also heard sigma coming out with a 24-70 soon

  12. Oooooh I might get some of these filters myself! I wonder what the effects would look like in a studio light setting?

  13. OH MY GOSH! I fall in love with this filtres, it’s amazing, oh god I wanna all of them!

  14. Not a big fan of these effects, as they mostly degrade the sharpness and color of the photos. Many of these effects can be applied in post via software and with much greater control. I notice you don’t usually use these types of modifiers in your photo shoots, probably for the same reason.

  15. Hey great video! love the style of the filter effect!! I was also wondering how do record the screen of the camera while using it.

  16. It’s a wireless transmitter, I’m not too happy with the quality of it though (it’s usually super choppy and pixelated) so I’m still looking for a better one and will recommend when I find something good πŸ™‚

  17. I would guess it would look pretty cool in a studio setting as well, I might try it in the future if I ever get myself back in a studio πŸ˜€

  18. For me sharpness isn’t everything and the whole point is to do something fun with the colours of your photos πŸ˜€ You can definitely apply some of these effects in post if you want but I do personally believe doing it in camera on the day usually looks much better/realistic and blends into the photo more. And I agree I don’t normally use filters like this usually because they’re mostly inefficient, this system is much easier to use so I have intentions of using it more often here and there during photoshoots – I guess time will tell!

  19. Thank you! I chose the large ring version for 77mm, it also comes with step up and down rings so you can attach it to a few different lenses. If you’re stuck on deciding, I would choose which lens I would use it with the most (for me I thought 85mm would look best with these effects and also wanted it to work with my 35 since it’s the focal length I use the most) and went with that choice πŸ™‚

  20. Julia Trotti you need to do a bts using the composer pro with the edge and sweet optics x

  21. Thank you!! I would love to make another video about that – going to work on it!

  22. Hi! Love your content! What external recorder are you using and how did you mount it on the bottom?

  23. I NEED this, my birthday is in a few days. Beautiful video btw, I am fascinated with all the creative concepts I can come up with using this kit. Will this work with a SonyA6000?

  24. Are there some presets or actions for photoshop or lightroom to mimic these effects.

  25. I am getting the Omni creative filter system for Christmas, so excited! I actually discovered Lensbaby through this video and I am obsessed. Please do more Lensbaby reviews!

  26. Your behind the scenes photoshoot are my favorite! It gives me more idea what to do and how to interact with the model <3
