The ARRI PL and Canon EF-mount Laowa Nanomorph 80mm T2.4 1.5x S35 Anamorphic Lens from Venus Optics is a compact, lightweight anamorphic lens that captures high-quality, organic imagery with 1.5x anamorphic squeeze on cameras with S35 sensors. It features telephoto compression ideal for close-ups, an aperture range of T2.4 to T16 for a deep depth of field, and 13 iris blades for soft bokeh.
Anamorphic Cinema Lens
This prime lens has a short minimum focus distance of 27.5" and offers anamorphic qualities such as oval bokeh, shallower depth of field, and amber color lens flares. Other features include focus marks in both feet and meters, 0.8 MOD cine gears on focus and aperture rings, and a 62mm front filter thread. The included ARRI PL and Canon EF lens mounts are user interchangeable. Use this Nanomorph prime with the separately available 1.33x adapter to obtain a 2x squeeze ratio.
Constant 1.5x Squeeze Ratio
A 1.5x squeeze ratio is a perfect balance between the size and anamorphic intensity. With a 1.5x squeeze ratio, you will have a 2.66:1 on a 16:9 sensor after de-squeeze. The larger-than-S35 coverage enables you to use Nanomorph lenses with minimal vignetting on select full-frame cameras.
Optional 1.33x Adapter
Use this Nanomorph prime with the separately available 1.33x front-mounted adapter to obtain a wider 2x squeeze ratio.
- This compact and lightweight lens measures just 3.7" in length and weighs just 1.8 lb.
- The smaller design enables you to get an anamorphic look for handheld, slider, and gimbal capture.
Interchangeable ARRI PL and Canon EF Mounts
The included ARRI PL and Canon EF mounts are user interchangeable, providing compatibility with a range of cameras.
Artistic Oval Bokeh
A 1.5x squeeze ratio also renders an oval bokeh that gives an artistic touch to the image. It also creates a blurry and creamy background that pops out the subject.
This 80mm telephoto focal length provides enhanced depth of field and impressive bokeh effects, making it ideal for close-up imaging.
Amber Anamorphic Flare
- The amber flare creates a warmer look that highlights the anamorphic style.
- Horizontal flares are a signature feature of the anamorphic look.
- Note that an alternate flare color may be shown.
T2.4 Aperture, Close Focus
The 27.5" minimum focus distance enables users to create closer shots. The T2.4 maximum aperture renders a shallower depth of field, creating a stronger sense of compression and oval-shaped bokeh.
Unified Gear Position
The unified gear position allows users to switch lenses quickly and without readjustment on the focus gear.
77mm Filter Thread
A 77mm filter can be attached directly to the lens for a variety of handy setups, including handheld, drone, and gimbal shots.
Dual Focus Scales
Focus marks are provided in both feet and meters.
0.8 MOD Gears
Industry-standard 0.8 MOD gears are installed on both aperture and focus rings.
