The Lensbaby Burnside 35 is an ambitious lens that gives users better control of in-camera vignette. Lensbaby has established a name for themselves thanks to its numerous products that create effects in optics, the Burnside 35 is no different, but it is truly unlike anything Lensbaby has done before. The Burnside 35 features the unique ability to mechanically control the amount of vignetting on a photo and can be controlled through the use of a dial on the lens. This innovative feature flies in the face of traditional lenses, as it gives users full control of an image feature that is usually handled through post production.
At its core, the Lensbaby Burnside 35 is a full-frame 35mm f/2.8 lens. The lens carries a similar look to the Velvet-series of lenses, with a solid metal housing, smooth-turning and long throw manual focus ring. Like all Lensbaby lenses, the Burnside 35 is compatible with a variety of camera systems and will work on most Canon, Nikon, Sony, Four Thirds, Fujifilm, Pentax and Samsung NXs.
