“The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe: A Revolution in Close-Up Photography”

The Laowa 24mm f/14 Probe by Venus Optics is a one-of-a-kind lens crafted for close-up photography. Its distinctive elongated barrel delivers a remarkable 2:1 maximum magnification alongside a minimal 1.5′ focusing distance and an ultra-close 0.8″ working distance. Despite its proximity to subjects, the lens maintains a comfortable shooting distance with its 1.3′ length. Offering a wider angle, it enhances depth of field compared to standard telephoto macro lenses, resulting in detailed backgrounds with reduced subject isolation.

Equipped with extra-low dispersion and extra refractive index elements, the optical design effectively combats chromatic and spherical aberrations, ensuring exceptional clarity, color accuracy, and sharpness. Manual focus capability enables precise adjustments from 1.5′ to infinity, while a built-in LED ring light on the front aids in close-distance focusing. With its slender 0.8″ barrel diameter, the lens provides ample opportunities for front lighting of subjects. Moreover, its waterproof front design permits working near water surfaces or in challenging environmental conditions with ease.
