it's actually a little closer to shooting a 4x5 camera with its lens wide open. by changing the angular relationship between the film plane and the focusing plane you can control the orientation of depth of field within the picture.

that sounds way more complex than it actually is... so just go to http://www.lensbaby.co​m (external link) and look at the gallery of examples. :)

Lensbabies are not tilt shift lenses. They are closer to using a Diana than a TSE. A sort of special effects lens. I was going to add soft focus lens as well but they are not that either. They may have a few characteristics of a TSE and soft focus (as well as macro lens when it comes to it) but that does not mean they do those things in any sort of technically competent fashion.

I have 2 lensbabies, 3 TSEs, 1 soft focus lens and a macro lens so I do know what each of these devices do. I don't have a DIana.
