CANON LAOWA 24 MM F / 14 2X MACRO PROBE
Described as "weird but cool," the Canon Laowa 24mm f / 14 EF-mount probe from Venus Optics is a truly unique lens designed for close-up shots. Distinguished by its long and slim lens barrel, this macro lens provides a maximum magnification of 2: 1 with a minimum focus distance of 1.5 'and a close minimum working distance of 0.8 ". Even at such a close working distance, The lens is 1.3 'long, placing it at a comfortable distance for shooting close subjects. Additionally, as a wide-angle lens, it offers a greater depth of field compared to traditional telephoto macro lenses, allowing for greater detail in the background with less isolation of the subject.
The optical design includes extra-low dispersion and refractive index elements, which help suppress spherical and chromatic aberrations for a high degree of clarity, color accuracy and sharpness. Manual focus control allows focusing from 1.5 'to infinity, and the front of the lens has a built-in LED light ring to help focus at short distances. The slim 0.2 "diameter of the front of the lens barrel also offers greater opportunities to illuminate subjects from the front. Additionally, the front of the lens is waterproof and allows you to work with subjects just below the surface of the water or in other dusty or dusty locations. dusty test environments.
Prime Wide Angle is designed for full-frame EF mount Canon cameras, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 38.4mm equivalent focal length.
The unique macro lens design offers a maximum magnification of 2: 1 larger than actual size along with a minimum focusing distance of 1.5 'and a working distance of just 0.8 ".
The long, tubular lens tube contributes to a distinct insect-eye perspective, and despite the short working distance, the length of the lens tube places the camera at a comfortable shooting distance.
The 24mm wide-angle focal length offers a greater depth of field and more surrounding detail than traditional telephoto macro designs, which tend to isolate the subject with shallow depth of field.
The optical design includes two extra low dispersion elements that control color fringes and chromatic aberrations to produce greater clarity and color accuracy. Also included is an additional refractive index element, which reduces spherical aberrations and distortion to improve sharpness and accurate rendering.
The slim 0.8 "front diameter enables unique" sliding "shots and offers a greater variety of close-up and discrete shooting opportunities. The smaller front diameter also makes it easier to illuminate close-up subjects from the front.
The front of the lens is also waterproof, allowing you to work comfortably below the surface of water or in dusty environments.
The front of the lens also has a built-in LED light ring, which is powered via a micro-USB port on the barrel, to provide some illumination on close subjects for easier focusing.
Designed to be used as a macro lens for close-ups, the manual focus operation also allows you to focus to infinity.
The seven-blade diaphragm contributes to pleasant bokeh quality.
