The Laowa 24mm F14 2x Macro Probe is the perfect lens for capturing truly unique shots. The elongated barrel allows you to record images from a perspective few lenses offer. The lens is now available in several mounts including a Sony E-mount version that's been modified for cine users.
The lens is a 2:1 macro that touts a wide-angle "bug-eye" perspective creating a shallow depth of field at close distances. The image circle can cover both standard 35mm (36x24mm) and Super 35 sensors. The front of the barrel is waterproof and has a LED ring light mounted to the tip to help you probe shots at night or to give an image the slightest of light pop.
Already available in Nikon F, Pentax, ARRI PL, Canon EF, and Sony E, the Laowa lens offers "cine" versions for a Canon EF and Sony E. The cine-mod models come with standard gear focus and aperture rings designed for video. This allows you to use follow focus systems while shooting. The cine version also includes a variable-output control cable and an aluminum case to carry the lens.
The cine version of both mounts tacks on an extra $200 to the lens that already costs $1,499, making it $1,699 out the door.
The Laowa 24mm F14 2x Macro Probe for both Canon EF Cine and Sony E Cine are available now.
