Described as "weird but genius," the Canon EF-mount Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe from Venus Optics is a truly unique lens designed for close-up shooting. It allows you to capture imagery of areas inaccessible to normal lenses. Even though it is long (16"), this lens is very lightweight and portable. The Venus Optics Laowa 24mm EF Mount Probe Lens provides a new way to approach macro photography and filmmaking.

Optical design includes two extra-low dispersion elements that control color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy. One extra refractive index element is also featured, which reduces spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering. Seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Aperture & Focus
Unique macro lens design offers a greater-than-life-size 2:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 1.5' and a working distance of just 0.8". The deep, fixed f/14 aperture 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. Manual focus control permits focusing from 1.5' to infinity, and the front of the lens has a built-in LED ring light to aid in focusing at close distances.

Unique Build Benefits
The slim 0.2" diameter of the front of the lens barrel also offers greater opportunities for lighting subjects from the front. It 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. The front of the lens also has a built-in LED ring light, which is powered via a micro-USB port on the barrel, to provide some illumination on close-up subjects for easier focusing. The front of the lens is also waterproof, allowing you to comfortably work just under the surface of water or in dusty environments. The 20mm diameter lens tip is small enough to not completely overshadow a small subject, making lighting a tiny object much easier. The long, tubular lens barrel contributes to producing a distinct bug-eye perspective and, despite the short working distance, the length of the lens barrel places the camera at a comfortable shooting distance.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
