How to get that lense effect?
show user profile  Stephen R.

Is there any way to duplicate this with shaders, or would it have to be done in post? Been looking around and cant really find any tutorials on this kind of thing.

Have a look at chromatic aberration, at least I think that's what you mean.

is that what the actual color shifting on the lense itself is called, or the resulting shifting of color in the images it takes?

Chromatic abberation is on the actual photo. To get this sort of effect thats on the lens.......hmmmmmmmmm
maybe some sort of falloff with gradients in the refraction slot ?

the colour shifting on the image is chromatic aberration indeed. the lens is just reflecting something cool. try M skyportals with a blackbody shader on them. look up see jeff pattons (or was it zap anderson?) posts on his blog about this.

chromatic aberration on the image via post or using the Mr bokeh shader with a red green blue image, i couldn't find the shader myself so instead i downloaded photo studio free plugin and worked a charm (render times suck though)

As for the lens itself, a nice environment map would be what is creating most of that, but also maybe some light dispersion between the lenses is also being seen. Google for custom mr glass shaders that support light dispersion, might also help
