Il Chul Photo Technic(www.ilchul.co.kr), the official importer of Lensbaby, showcased Lensbaby Velvet 56, the special-effect photography lens that can also be used as a general DSLR lens, at The 25th Seoul International Photo & Imaging Industry Show(P&I 2015), which runs Apr. 16-19.
Velvet 56 is a lens that is specially designed to give the classic look when taking portraits. Its velvety, ethereal feel with a smooth finish provides the effect of a mid-20th century portrait. With the widest aperture of f/1.6, it gives a great outfocusing effect. When the aperture is closed to more than f/4, it can take pictures like other normal focal length lenses, which gives the versatility.
This lens had already received rave reviews from the U.S. market. Korea is the first country in Asia to launch this product.
