The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe reinvents the definition of macro photography and videography. This DLSR lens has a unique design that speaks for its function and efficiency in capturing close-up images.
This add-on lens features a 40cm-long tubular and waterproof barrel that gives a bug’s-eye perspective of the subject. It also keeps you and the camera at a safe distance without losing focus on the subject.
Likewise, the barrel eliminates any chance that the object will detect your presence, which usually happens with other camera lenses that require you to creep up close to get a good macro shot. Moreover, the unique shape of the lens lets you capture images through tiny areas such as burrows and holes.
The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe relies on its 20mm diameter lens tip and USB-powered LED (USB slot is on the barrel) to provide macro focus up to 2cm with proper illumination. The result is a captured image that shows a great amount of detail and texture.
Moreover, this lightweight lens is ideal to use for tiny subjects like ants. Its 2:1 maximum magnification reveals details that cannot be seen by the naked eye. The focus also allows background details to be included in the shot.
