Century's advanced two-element Achromatic Diopters turn your video lens into a true macro zoom. Also known as Macro Zoom Attachments, they provide video zoom lenses with more close-up range and magnification, while maintaining full zoom capabilities - without compromising image quality. They are also designed to maintain a flat field and edge-to-edge sharpness without chromatic aberration or image degradation.
They provide dramatically shorter MOD (Minimum Object Distance). This is essential whenever it is necessary to focus tightly on a small subject with a long lens - in tabletop, miniature and flat field videography. For example, add a +2.6 diopter to a 14x lens with an MOD of 40", and bring it down to 10", filling the frame with a subject as small as 3/4" across.
Reduced working distance also offers a wide range of shooting possibilities. Exceptionally crisp videography of small objects like jewelry or computer chips is now possible. A variety of industrial applications are also made simpler, including remote, high-magnification visual inspection of hard-to-reach objects and manufacturing processes.
Common single element diopters permit focusing at close camera-to-subject distances, only at the expense of image clarity. Instead, Century's Diopters feature two highly corrected glass elements for edge-to-edge sharpness, thus minimizing chromatic aberration and distortion.
