Laowa Nanomorph 27mm T2.8 1.5X S35 Anamorphic Lens (Blue) for Sony E-Mount

Laowa Nanomorph is the World's smallest anamorphic lens for S35 with a constant 1.5x squeeze. The anamorphic lens is "Nano" as it is extremely tiny and light. “Morph” indicates Anamorphic. It is a front anamorphic design with a 1.5x constant squeeze ratio at ALL focusing points.

Anamorphic lenses are always cumbersome and heavy. This revolutionary "nano-sized" lens weighs less than 0.7 lbs (320g) and is only 3.54" (9cm) long, making it very handy for every set-up e.g. handheld, on a gimbal, on a slider, through tight space, even on a drone, etc. It makes a lot of formerly impossible shots possible.  

Constant 1.5x Squeeze & No Anamorphic Mumps

Laowa Nanomorph guarantees a constant 1.5x squeeze ratio at all focusing distances. Laowa decided to develop and invented this unique patented anamorphic design to guarantee a uniform squeeze ratio, promising optical quality, tiny size, and affordable price point.

Super 35+ coverage

The Super35 design allows it to be used perfectly on any Super35 / APS-C/ Micro Four Thirds cameras. The larger image circles of 35mm and 50mm are able to cover 4k 16:9 UHD on Sony A7iii with only mild vignetting

Golden Squeeze Ratio

The anamorphic lens features a widescreen cinematic perspective. Venus Optics decided to adopt a 1.5x squeeze ratio as they believe it strikes a perfect balance between the lens size and anamorphic look.

With a 1.5x squeeze, a 2.66:1 ratio on a 16:9 sensor can be obtained after de-squeeze. Compared to a 1.33x anamorphic lens, Laowa Nanomorph delivers a much more pronounced anamorphic and cinematic look. For 1.8x / 2x squeeze, the lens will be inevitably huge and more images will be wasted when paired with a 16:9 sensor.

3 Flare Colors available

Anamorphic lenses with blue flares are very common in the market and It fits perfectly with the films with the sci-fi and cool vibe. However, blue flares do not necessarily go well with skin tones. The new amber option we introduced, could deliver a warmer and passionate vibe that is suitable for narrative and day/night shots. The silver version provides more control over the flare colour and it renders a more subtle and neutral flare.

Short close focusing distance

Anamorphic lenses tend to have a longer closest focusing distance due to restrictions of optical design. Nanomorph has one of the shortest close focusing distances in the market. Filmmakers could obtain very close-up shots which renders a much shallower depth of field and stronger bokeh. This offers much higher flexibility in framing.
