This Strangely Shaped Lens Is Making Waves in the Wildlife Photography World!

Introduced at the biannual Photokina convention, this bizarre looking lens created by Venus Optics has been making the rounds of the macro, or close-up, photography world. Packing a 24mm macro lens with a foot long extender attached to it, getting near small creatures without frightening them is now possible! The width of the lens gives you beautiful shots of unexplored fauna and flora territory while taking away the shadows usually casted by the photographer and the lens in such intimate photographs.

Oh, and did we mention you can put it underwater? Check out the video below for a deep dive on the lens.

Using a waterproof cap outfitted with LED lighting at the tip, Laowa is giving the world the opportunity to truly explore all realms of the animal kingdom. Whether you’re on a hike in the Appalachian Trails or exploring the beaches of Mexico, no critter will ever go unseen again with this lens in your camera bag!
