Periscope revolution

With the Venus Optics Laowa Periprobe Cine 24mm f/14 Macro 2:1 lens for Canon EF, you’ll discover entirely new ways of filming within tight spaces and miniature settings that wouldn’t be possible without a special periscope tube. Side shots with the camera positioned directly above the subject, peering into insect habitats, following the hand of a writing person, dynamic shots in culinary films, amazing rotations and ‘walking’ through objects – these are just some of the solutions you will achieve with the Laowa Periprobe. Wherever traditional glass won’t fit, you can use the periscope and, by positioning it close to the ground, take spectacular shots!

Immerse yourself in the macro world

The unusual design of the lens will allow you to discover entirely new ways of filming small or hard-to-reach subjects. The Venus Optics Laowa Periprobe Cine 24 mm f/14 Macro 2:1 offers a large reproduction scale (2:1) and a minimum focusing distance of just 2 cm. You can use it to film insects in their natural habitat, cut through thickets of foliage or discreetly peek into the hiding place of squirrels. The infinity sharpening option will make it even easier to create the perfect composition.

Created with video creators in mind

Cine is the flagship series of film lenses from Venus Optics Laowa. As such, the Periprobe model couldn’t be complete without unique features that are perfect for the world of video creators. The focus and aperture rings are equipped with 0.8 MOD gears. These are compatible with the most popular follow focus systems on the market. The third rack-and-pinion ring will help automate the rotational movement of the entire lens, opening up even more creative possibilities for you to create exceptional shots. The manufacturer has also taken care of stepless adjustment. It allows you to change the aperture smoothly and soundlessly during video recording.

Additional light source

With such a long lens, the amount of light reaching the sensor is significantly reduced. With a dark aperture (T14), care must be taken to ensure good lighting of the set. However, the manufacturer has thought of everything! LEDs placed around the front lens will allow filming and photography even in total darkness. Simply connect the lens to an external power source (e.g. a power bank) using the USB cable included in the kit. But that’s not all! To give you even more control over your shots, you can reach for a special cable with a remote control to adjust the brightness level of the LEDs.

Water doesn’t scare him!

A pass through a stream of water poured into a glass, a visit to an aquarium or a POV shot from the perspective of a table on which flour is about to spill – any of these shots will be possible with the Venus Optics Laowa Periprobe Cine 24 mm f/14 Macro 2:1 lens. Its front element has been properly sealed to protect the unit from moisture, dust and harsh weather conditions. Aquarium, product and culinary photography has just gained a new ally!

Innovative construction

Inside the long, all-metal barrel are up to 27 lenses, arranged in 19 groups. The 24mm focal length provides a field of view of 85°. Thanks to such parameters, not only the foreground objects will appear in your films and photos, but also the scenery in which they are located. At the same time, you will retain much more detail than with classic macro lenses. Precision workmanship and top-quality materials guarantee perfect imaging of the lens. The manual focus and aperture rings operate extremely smoothly here, while putting up just the right amount of resistance required to maintain an optimum level of precision.
