What do you get when you buy a Lensbaby Creative Mobile Kit 

The Lensbaby Deluxe Creative Mobile kit will just cost you $99.95 and trust me you will get pictures which money can't buy.
You will get the following items :

  • Lensbaby LM-10 lens (The cylindrical lense)
  • Lensbaby LM-20 lens ( Lens on the left )
  • Lensbaby LM-30 lens ( Lens on the right)
  • A Mobile stand ( Yellow stick)
  • Few magnetic rings to hold the lensbaby

The lensbaby attaches to the mobile using magnets. You will get small metal rings which gets pasted on the mobile phone on the camera and the lensbaby have magnets at the end through which it attaches to the camera body. If your smartphone have a glass or super smooth body you will have a hard time attaching the rings, so the best way is to get a plastic cover for the mobile and attach the rings on it.The magnet is very strong and secure your Lensbaby perfectly.
Only word of caution since the Lensbaby attaches using magnet , if your mobile phone has Optical Image Stabilization then it can interfere with the magnets and make the optical image stabilization go crazy.

The Lensbaby lens might look like a tiny bit of glass but its built like a tank.The lens is completely made out of metal and the way the lens covers are designed will not make you lose the covers ever.It is cleverly made in such a way that the covers on the both sides stay together held with an elastic when you take it off the cover from the Lensbaby.
