Could any of you use something like this for your production videos?
Although you cannot attach something like this to your drone, It could be a quick transition solution for some photography and videos. Just a added tool for effects on the go.

What are your thoughts?

Last time I tried to use one of these I was able to see into the future

Maybe the ones that still have, should use them to tell us what DJI is going to release this year. What did yours tell you?:D

I'm not a huge fan of this "ball" fad. I find them to be distracting, lacking in creativity and takes away from the natural beauty of a photo, much like the fake HDR did years ago. All that said, an innovative drone/ball shot or video might be fun.

Get a grip sunshine, it's just a glass testicle.

Thank for the tip, I'll take that into consideration... :D

And then you have to polish them as well....
This thread could descend rapidly :D
On a more serious note I think Lensballs, like starburst filters, are more of a novelty factor than anything else. Having said that even 'practical' filters like NDs and polarisers, while useful, can be 'old' if overdone. Me, I prefer to take my photos naked.

That was you on eBay wasn't it? The guy with the mirror for sale who always manages to "accidentally" get himself in shot in the reflection...:eek:

Yep, seen some of the 'for sales' with the accidentally-on-purpose photographer in the shot. Not me though, I meant 'naked' as in camera-only, no filters Thumbswayup
