New MovieMaker Kit is a Suitcase Full of Magic!
At Cinegear 2012, we stopped to talk to the good folks at Lensbaby. Kirsten Hunter was able to tell us about one of Lensbaby's most exciting products: The Lensbaby Movie Maker's Kit.
Combining many of Lensbaby's lenses and optics into one pack, this kit gives you a massive amount of options when it comes to customizing the look of your shot.
The Lensbaby Movie Maker's Kit is a complete creative solution for professional filmmakers looking to add unique effects to their film, in-camera. Conveniently packaged in a rugged Pelican case, this kit contains two of Lensbaby's flagship lenses with native PL mounts for use on professional motion picture cameras - including the brand new ultra-smooth and refinedComposer Pro PL with Sweet 35 Optic, as well as one Canon EF mount lens for use with Canon's line of HD DSLRs.
The Movie Maker's Kit also includes a wide range of interchangeable optics and accessories designed to provide filmmakers with limitless aesthetic and creative options at a variety of focal lengths.

I recently contributed a chapter about Lensbaby lenses for which I was paid, however I was not paid for this article.
