The Venus Optics Laowa 24mm Sony E Mount Lens is a borescope-like tool that allows you to capture imagery of areas inaccessible to normal lenses. Here are some of the unique features of the Laowa Probe Lens:
Laowa vs Standard Macro Lenses
The Laowa has a 2:1 magnification ratio while still encompassing a wide 84° angle of view. Being able to capture both your very small subject and its surroundings in one scene is a unique opportunity for nature and product shooters. The deep f/14-f/40 aperture range offers a much greater depth of field when compared to standard macro lenses. You're able to focus very closely to your subject while still getting most of the background in focus.
Unique Build Benefits
The long barrel is useful for documenting habitats and the insides of products for compelling results without having to be too close to the subject. For video, capture fun "slide in" shots in areas normally much too narrow for average lenses. What's more, the front barrel of this lens is completely waterproof so that you can capture fish between rocks or the inside of a glass as something is poured into it. The 20mm diameter lens tip is small enough to not completely overshadow a small subject, making lighting a tiny object much easier. The lens comes with a built-in LED ring light. Please note that to operate the built-in LED on this lens you will need to use an external USB power source.
Weird Lens, Normal Mount
Attach this lens to any E mount Sony camera. It is designed to cover up to a standard full frame 35mm sensor. Even though it is long (16"), this lens is very lightweight and portable. The optics feature the same clarity and color accuracy you'd find in most high-quality lenses.
The Venus Optics Laowa 24mm Sony E Mount Lens provides a new way to approach macro photography and filmmaking. It is ideal for nature documentaries, how-it's-made style commercial shooting, and all manner of creative and professional projects.
