Just orderered a Lensbaby Control Freak - I have questions

13 years 8 months ago #687 by Joe Photo Daddy
First off, anyone have one of these? How easy are they to use? I was just thinking, will the camera still be able to make a metered recommendation? Or will I need to get a light meter? This is being mounted on Nikon D80

I have used one only, I think this is something I would like to pick up. Definitely fun, but will take some time to learn how to use.

I've seen some photos taken by one of these, very creative tool. I might need to add one of these on my hubby's Christmas list of stuff I want!

Now how do you change the aperture with those? They are suppose to be like a 50mm lens right?
