Hey everyone,
after waiting about 1 year for the lens becoming cheaper... I could not resist anymore;) Now, that it arrives last week I was really excited to put it to the test.
This is why the Laowa Probe Lens (F14, 24mm) of Venus Optics is my favourite lens in 2020: The most fun part about this lens is it's long barrel shape, which offers endless possibilities to film epic B-Roll.
I had to buy an slider and add a huge amount of light, but then this lens is becoming the most fun toy in the world;)

Very interesting! I would want to use it to look for critters under water.

A nice video, and a very interesting lens!

This should be in Technical and Studio, though, if in any of the Image Galleries at all. I'll move it.

I've been looking at this lens online for a while but it does seem most appropriate when used for video, i'd be interested if someone has some demo of interesting still shots taken with it.
