Richmond-based photographer Cameron Texter has invented a new selective-focus lens for Canon and Nikon SLR cameras, called the Lynny. “The way it works is you push and pull the lens to and from the camera, and tilt the lens around to control where the blur is in the photo,” Texter says. “The Lynny is made from just an extension tube, macro filters, and gaffers tape, or electrical tape, and also 2 pipe clamps for having something to grip when pushing and pulling the lens to and from the camera.” The inventor has set up an IndieGoGo page to raise funds for the commercialisation of the Lynny. Interested readers are encouraged to check out the project’s website via the link below.

Just why do you publish this???? And why YOUR text implying it is a new product??? For correctness consider to remove from your webpage.

Such a tilt shift is nothing new and can be made by anyone and much simpler than the person behing the so called Lynny writes. He is also begging for money for funding for him to make one which is absurd if not stupid.

Thus what you have published is not legitimate, and certainly not news in photographic equipment.

Could someone please tell Mr. Texter his so-called invention has already been invented? It's called 'bellows-type lens'. It's been around for quite a while now and it's a far less tacky solution than that proposed by him!
