The advanced two-element Century Precision Optics' 86mm +1.6 Achromatic Diopter turns your video lens into a true macro zoom. Also known as Macro Zoom Attachments, the Achromatic Diopter provides 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. Plus, the hard anti-reflective coating greatly reduces light loss and flare, while also helping to guarantee proper color and contrast.
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
