Venus Optics Laowa 24mm T/14 2x PeriProbe Overview

By B&H Photo's

The Venus Optics LAOWA 24mm T14-40 Full Frame 2x PeriProbe Cine Lens captures sharp magnified shots with full frame camera sensors using their Canon EF-mount and has a focal length of 24mm. Its periscope-style lens tube with interchangeable ends features an aperture range of T14 to T40 for a deep or shallow depth of field. Use it underwater or in tight spaces, thanks to its waterproof front barrel and slim profile.

A lens construction of 28 elements in 19 groups creates a smooth, circular bokeh with minimal focus breathing. The lens can rotate 360° along the axis to unlock the orientation ring and create spinning shots. Both the focus and iris rings have 0.8 MOD cinema-standard gears for intuitive manual controls. A 1/4"-20 thread at the end of the 15.7" lens allows you to mount fill lights or other accessories. Built-in LEDs in the lens tips provide a ring-light effect to your shots.

Can the original probe lens be rotated as well? If I wanted to do a spinning/rotating shot with that as well.
Asked by: Stiven
The rotation of the Venus Optics LAOWA 24mm T14-40 Full Frame 2x PeriProbe Cine Lens refers to being able to rotate the lens barrel so the markings can be read. It does not rotate the image. To do that, you need to rotate the camera.

Will this fit on a Sony a7RV or do I need a mount and if so which mount?
Asked by: elias
Yes, For the lens that you linked you would need an Canon EF to Sony E-Mount adapter. However Venus Optics makes an E-mount model of this lens that would work without an adapter on the Sony A7RV.

I see this lens (for Canon EF anyway) measures its aperture in T-stops. Is there a version that measures in F-stops?
Asked by: Christian
No, there is no current version of Venus Optics LAOWA 24mm T14-40 Full Frame 2x PeriProbe Cine Lens (EF Mount) manufactured in F-stops. The older non cine option can be considered for F-stop.

Can the Full Frame Laowa Probe be successfully used on APS-C or Micro 4/3 cameras such as Canon D90 and Lumix GH5? What is the effect on the image?
Asked by: Norbert
The Venus Optics LAOWA 24mm T14-40 Full Frame 2x PeriProbe Cine Lens (EF Mount) could be adapted to crop sensor cameras using a lens adapter. There will be additional magnification of the lens and it will not be as wide. On MFT is would be a 48mm lens and on APSC sensors it would be a 36mm view.
