For those of you who use lens balls, what size do you have. It looks like something that would be fun to try


Also try crystal prisms and cubes and other shapes...I have a few on my Amazon shopping list but never bought yet.

The novelty might wear out after a while of overuse.

I found these on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/COCOScent-Crystal-Photography-Wedding-Decoration/dp/B07H9SLSKG/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1546517018&sr=8-10&keywords=Crystal%2BSphere%2BBall&th=1
I used one once, an interesting thing to shoot through, but not enough interest to buy one. Gary

I have one. For Christmas I treated myself to a triangular one.

Lens balls appear to be readily available, not that expensive, come in various sizes, with or without stands and fabric bags. Putting them on my fun but not really necessary list of photo accessories.

What sizes do you have and which one would you start with

I have 2 different sizes. Love to shoot different images with them. Order the holder with it, means you can shoot without worry it will roll off the surface.

I agree, get the holder! On top of Old Smokey, I lost my glass ball when somebody clicked.

Like everything else, prices are across the board. Have a friend whose husband got her one but bought it off a Facebook ad and way overpaid...

A friend did that years ago when Dungeons and Dragons were just startingi believe it was in the late 1960's. He was a wizard.

Some photos came out well and it was fairly easy to do.

*Remember the comment above about the sun burning your hands. He sure did! LoL
