Laowa 24mm F14 2x Macro Probe Lens
This innovative product has already made waves in the photography world, having been successfully funded on Kickstarter and ranking as the second most funded lens project of all time. Introducing the world's first consumer-grade probe lens, this lens is capable of focusing from 2:1 macro to infinity, while also providing a unique and captivating wide angle 'Bug Eye' perspective.
The wide angle design of this lens allows for a much greater depth of field at close distances than what is possible with a conventional telephoto macro lens. This means that more background details can now be captured, providing a more comprehensive and immersive experience for the viewer. Additionally, the front barrel of the lens is waterproof, and an LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens, ensuring that you can capture stunning images in any lighting condition.
This lens is incredibly versatile, as it can cover both standard 35mm full frame and Super35 image sensors, making it perfect for a wide range of photography needs. It is also super lightweight, making it easy to carry with you wherever you go.
For those in the videography industry, a "Cine-mod" version of the lens is available, which includes standard gear focus and aperture rings, specifically designed for videography purposes. Additionally, the lens comes with a variable-output Control cable and a rugged aluminium carry case, ensuring that your equipment stays safe and secure while on the go.
Available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony FE, Pentax K, and Arri PL mounts, this lens is a must-have for any photographer or videographer looking to take their work to the next level.
The Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Probe lens is now available for sale. The package includes a white USB cable dimmer (with power adjustment), black USB cable (no power adjustment), lens bag and metal case. Please note that the LED is powered by an external battery (not included in the package).

Macro lenses on the market typically have a long focal length ranging from 60mm to 120mm. These lenses allow the subject to fill most of the frame, isolating it from the surrounding environment. However, our Laowa 24mm lens is different. It allows you to focus incredibly close to the subject, just 2 cm (0.8 in.) @ 2:1, revealing an incredible amount of detail and texture.
What sets our lens apart is that it also provides a wide-angle ‘Bug Eye’ view (84.1°), allowing you to capture more of the background details in your shot. This unique feature enables you to create a stunning macro bug-eye perspective that no other lens can achieve. The ability to focus so closely to the subject opens up a world of shooting possibilities.
The wide-angle design of our lens also means that it offers a much greater depth of field at close distances compared to telephoto macro lenses. This feature allows you to capture more background details in your shots, making it an excellent choice for both studio and wildlife photography.
In summary, our Laowa 24mm lens is a game-changer in the world of macro photography. It offers a unique perspective that no other lens can achieve, allowing you to capture stunning and informative shots with ease.

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 telephoto lens.
