Laowa Nanomorph 1.5X Anamorphic [27mm T2.8 / 35mm T2.4 / 50mm T2.4] Mirrorless Bundle (Silver Flare)

The Laowa Nanomorph is the world’s smallest anamorphic lens covering Super35 sensors, weighing only less than 14 oz each. It opens up more possibilities in set-ups that cannot be done before, like on gimbals, helmets, drones etc. The constant 1.5x squeeze ratio makes it a mumps-free lens while retaining anamorphic characteristics. The lens are available in the Silver flare option. The relatively close focusing distance also offers more room for creators in composition and creates more depth of field. Hard case is included for the Bundle. The lens can be equipped on the DJI DL mount.
Why Nanomorph
Anamorphic lenses are frequently used by big-budget Hollywood productions to achieve the cinematic widescreen perspective. Oval bokeh, horizontal flares and shallower depth of field are aesthetics which add a cinematic and artistic touch to your film. Anamorphic lenses are always huge and heavy. This revolutionary ‘Nano-sized’ lens weighs less than 0.7 lbs (320g) and is only 3.54 inches (9cm) long, making it very handy for every set-up, for example, handheld, on a gimbal, on a slider, through tight space, even on a drone, etc. It makes a lot of formerly impossible shots possible. Most anamorphic lenses in the market cannot be lifted on drones with the weight limitations. This compactness of Nanomorph series opens up new possibilities and options for drone pilots. The lens is specially designed for Super35 (APS-C) and Micro Four Thirds sensors. But the larger than S35 coverage of the Nanomorphs allows the lens to be used on Full Frame cameras like Sony A7siii 4K 16:9 with only mild vignetting.
Cinematic Widescreen
With a 1.5x squeeze, you will have a 2.66:1 on a 16:9 sensor after de-squeeze. Comparing to 1.33x anamorphic lens, Laowa Nanomorph delivers a much more pronounced anamorphic and cinematic look. For 1.8x/2x squeeze, the lens will become huge and a lot more image will be wasted when pairing with 16:9 sensor. Anamorphic Lens offers a more wider horizontal field of view and shallower depth of field than spherical lenses. A 1.5x squeeze ratio also renders stretched oval bokeh which gives an artistic touch to the image. A 1.5x squeeze ratio gives a stronger sense of compression and bokeh of more oval.
Short Focusing Distance
Anamorphic lenses tend to have longer closest focusing distance due to restriction of optical design. Nanomorph has one of the shortest close focusing distance among all anamorphic lenses in the market. Filmmakers could obtain a very close-up shots which renders much shallower depth of field and stronger bokeh. This offers a much higher flexibility in framing. Nanomorph 27mm T2.8 1.5x Cine offers 43cm or 16.9 inches, Nanomorph 35mm T2.4 1.5x Cine offers 60cm or 23.6 inches, and Nanomorph 50mm T2.4 1.5x Cine offers 70cm or 27.5 inches.
No Anamorphic Mumps
In some cheaper anamorphic lenses with synchro focus design in the market, the squeeze ratio varies when focus close and hence changes the actual size of the subject. That’s what Laowa called anamorphic mumps. There is no way to correct in post and is not usable in professional shootings. The Nanomorph guarantees a constant squeeze ratio at ALL focusing distance. For cheaper anamorphic lenses, anamorphic mumps made the lens un-usable at a closer distance (e.g. a 1.8x lens will become 1.62x when focused at 0.7m). For more professional designs out there, the lens is bulky and costs a fortune. That’s the reason why 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 which solves the struggles of every anamorphic user. The anamorphic blocks are put behind the spherical elements and the focusing groups. These two groups compress the image, and hence the smaller anamorphic blocks can be used, which makes the lens tinier. Moreover, the image is formed and focused before the anamorphic blocks which maintains a constant squeeze ratio no matter if the focus changes.
Available Mounts
For Mirrorless version, Canon RF, Sony E, M43, DJI DL, Nikon Z, L mount and Fuji X are available and they are also interchangeable. Each lens will come with ONE single mount bayonet and you may add $50 for extra bayonet mounts into your Perk.
Unified Gear Position
The unified gear position allows users to switch lenses quickly and without readjustment on the focus gear.
55mm Filter Thread for Screw-In Filters
55mm filters can be attached directly on the lens which filmmakers can combo a handy set-ups. It is favorable when doing a Run-And-Gun shot or flying it with a drone.
0.8 Mod Gear
Industry standard 0.8 mod gear is installed on both aperture and focus rings.
Flange 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.
Dual Scale
Both imperial and metric scale are printed on the lens body.
