The Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens focuses from 2:1 macro to infinity and encompasses a compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ perspective. The wide angle design means much greater depth of field at close distances than possible with conventional telephoto macro lens, so more background details can now be seen. The front barrel of the lens is waterproof and an LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens. It can cover both standard 35mm full frame & Super35 image sensors and is super lightweight to carry!
2:1 Macro to Infinity Focus
With the Laowa Macro Probe lens, you can now take advantage of the 2:1 maximum magnification to shoot really small bugs and reveal details that cannot be seen with the naked eye. It is particularly useful for videographers since both finer details and environmental backgrounds can be captured in one shot.
Deep Depth of Field
The wide angle design also means much greater depth of field at close distances (compared to the telephoto macro lens) so that more background details can now be seen. Being able to focus so close but still have deep epth of field is a BIG advantage for both studio and wildlife photography.
Long and Tubular Lens Barrel
Thanks to the 40 cm (15.7 in.) long barrel, you can focus really close to the subject but still keep yourself and your camera a reasonable distance away. This feature is super useful and makes your macro shooting so much easier. Imagine how convenient it will be to shoot a frog hiding in the bushes using our Probe lens, compared to getting your typical 100mm macro lens super close to it to avoid leaves blocking your subject.
Tiny Waterproof Lens Tip
Features a waterproof 20mm diameter lens tip which makes it super easy to get sufficient illumination. This unlocks the possibility to get really close to your subject (OR very low to the ground level) to capture a “delicious” perspective never seen before and maximizes the visual impact .
Full Frame Coverage
The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe can cover both the standard 35mm full frame & Super35 image sensor.
