Laowa Nanomorph 50mm T2.4 1.5x S35 (Silver) for Nikon Z Mount

The Laowa Nanomorph 50mm T2.4 1.5X S35 for Nikon Z Mount features a patented anamorphic optical structure that makes the lens revolutionarily small and compact. It is a front anamorphic design with a 1.5x constant squeeze ratio at all focusing distances. The extra short closest focusing distance also helps render stronger bokeh and creates a stronger compression.

Revolutionarily Small and Compact

The Anamorphic lenses are always cumbersome. This revolutionary 'nano-sized' lens weighs less than 0.7 lb (320g) and is only 3.54-inch (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 and No Anamorphic Mumps

For some cheaper anamorphic lenses with synchro focus design, anamorphic blocks are often added at the front. It is the simplest and cheapest way to design and make an anamorphic lens. However, the significant drawback is the failure to maintain the same squeeze ratio at a close distance, causing Anamorphic Mumps. The lens is unusable for real shooting because the variable squeeze is impossible to correct in post. Laowa Nanomorph guarantees a constant 1.5x squeeze ratio at all focusing distances. The 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 can 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.

Bokeh Comparison

A 1.5x squeeze ratio also renders a stronger sense of compression and bokeh more oval. 

Short Closest 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 render a much shallower depth of field and stronger bokeh. This offers much higher flexibility in framing.

Professional Cine Housing 

The unified gear position allows users to switch lenses quickly and without readjustment on the focus gear. The 55mm filters can be attached directly to the lens which filmmakers can combo handy set-ups. It is favorable when doing a Run-And-Gun shot or flying it with a drone. The Industry standard 0.8 mod gear is installed on both apertures and focus rings. Both imperial and metric scales are printed on the lens body.

Focal Back Adjustment 

Filmmakers could fine-tune the back focus quickly by a 0.9mm hex key (included in the package), which ensures the scale is still accurate and aligned after changing cameras.
