    That may be why it never brought him anything but fame.
    Well, there is a patent paper to prove it, and it's not uncommon for people to patent what others have invented. The point was not that he invented it, the point was, he patented it!

    Yeah, if he'd claimed he'd invented it, that would have been patently false!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    No, no. Read the patent. He didn't.
    He patented something you could do with it. More in particular, a method to do something you could do with it.

    OK, I'll take another look at it.

    In other words, front tilt; just so there is no confusion that a Lens Baby's effect is anything but this combined with a cheap lens. So, use a Lens Baby if you want images that look technically flawed, and use other tilt methods (such as a view camera) if you want more technically sound pix. This is not a judgment against Lens Babies; it is just a description of them compared to other tilt methods.
