The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe Lens - (Cine) PL is the world’s first consumer-grade probe lens that focuses from 2:1 macro to infinity and with a compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ perspective.
The wide-angle design provides much greater depth of field at close distances than possible with a conventional telephoto macro lens, so more background details can now be seen. The front lens barrel 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!
“Cine-mod” version, with standard gear focus and aperture rings, is specifically designed for videography purposes. Includes variable-output Control cable and rugged aluminum carry case.
The package includes a white USB cable dimmer (with power adjustment), black USB cable (no power adjustment), lens bag and metal case.
Bug Eye Perspective
Macro lenses in the market tend to have a long focal length (from 60mm to 180mm) and the subject fills most of the frame, isolating it from the surrounding environment. The Laowa 24mm, allows you to focus very close – 2 cm at 2:1 – to the subject, showing more detail and texture. At the same time, you can enjoy a compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ view (84.1°) so that more of the background details may be included in the image. You can easily create a very informative and stunning macro bug-eye perspective that no other lens can do! The fact that it can focus really close to the subject enables far more shooting possibilities.
Deep depth of field
The wide-angle design also means much greater depth of field at close distances compared to the telephoto macro lens, more background details are now visible. Being able to focus so close but still have a depth of field is a significant advantage, both in-studio and in outdoor photography.
For example, the bug below is around 4 mm (0.15 in.) in size and it was captured by our 24mm f/14 Probe at 2:1 Macro magnification. The greater DOF allows more leaf area to be in focus compared to the telephoto lens. The less blurry background allows the habitat of the subject to be included in your photo.
Tubular & Long Barrel
Do you not understand this weird design? For traditional macro lenses, you need to get really close to your subject in order to take a good macro shot. But some areas are just simply inaccessible. 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.
Shooting lethal snakes? No problem. The long lens barrel also allows us to keep a safe distance away from shooting lethal snakes. Your big camera body and lens will no longer “alert” the subject of your arrival.
Tiny Lens Tip
Getting proper lighting on the subject is not always an easy task for macro photography. Typical macro lenses have large lens barrels, at least 60mm or above in diameter, blocking most of the light from hitting the subject. Our Laowa probe, on the other hand, features a 20mm diameter lens tip which makes it super easy to obtain sufficient illumination. The tiny 0.2 cm diameter lens tip unlocks the possibility to get really close to your subject or very low to the ground to capture a “delicious” perspective never seen before and maximizes the visual impact. Your viewers are literally walking on the pizza!
Waterproof front barrel
Do you think that’s cool enough? Think again! To bring you an even more exciting perspective and take your photos or video to the next level, we have made the front barrel of the Laowa probe waterproof. The waterproof design also implies that shooting in dusty environments or with fine powders is not going to be a problem anymore. You can literally use it anywhere.
LED Ring Light
Macro photography is about Depth of Field and smaller apertures are usually required. An LED ring light, powered by an optional external battery, is embedded in the lens tip to provide additional lighting for focus assistance. In most cases, the more lighting you have on your subject, the better your shot will look. An included variable-output Control cable lets you adjust the amount of light from the LED.
Full Frame coverage
The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe is compatible with Canon EF, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony FE mount cameras.
Despite the unusual look and long tubular design, the Laowa probe is actually very light and easy to carry. It weighs barely more than one pound, just 474 grams.
