- Product information & new releases
- 30 May, 2017
Fantasea and AOI have just released a selection of new quality wet lenses, designed to dramatically upgrade your underwater photography experience.
The macro lenses magnify the subject and enable the camera to focus short distances, creating sharp, detailed and impressive images. They are perfect for shooting close-up images of tiny creatures, fish, corals, textures and more. The lenses mount on the housing lens port and can be installed and removed during the course of the dive. They can be mounted on 67mm threaded lens ports and other dimensions by using an adaptor.
UWL-09F Wet Wide Angle Lens
Cat. no. 5157
The Fantasea-AOI UWL-09F is the finest wet wide angle conversion lens available. Built from quality materials and featuring the most impressive optic specifications, the UWL-09F delivers stunning unmatched results.
The UWL-09F wet wide angle lens provides an exceptionally wide field of view and a zero minimal focus distance, allowing to shoot breathtaking wide angle and close focus images that are super sharp corner-to-corner and great on the details. It is perfect for a wide variety of compositions, including seascape, divers, ship wrecks and schools of fish, without moving further away from the subject, thereby still taking full advantage of water clarity and artificial light sources.
The lens mounts on the housing lens port and can be installed and removed during the course of the dive. It can be mounted on 67mm threaded lens ports and other dimensions by using an adaptor.
High Optical Performance
UWL-09F offers unmatched quality with 5 multi-layered precision optic elements (organized in 5 groups). Images captured with the lens are exceptionally detailed and feature impressive overall sharpness. The combination of a super wide field of view (130 degrees) and zero minimal focus distance provide unlimited opportunities for image framing and creative compositions, including close focus wide angle and over-under (half/half) split images. Professionally engineered elements eliminate chromatic aberration. The AR (anti-reflection) coating on all glass elements assists in avoiding lens flare from the sun or artificial light sources.
Lens barrel is made from durable Aluminum alloy with black hard coating. The dome is covered with hard coating as well, protecting it from easily getting scratched or damaged. During development, the lens was thoroughly tested in extreme conditions (depth, temperature, salinity and radiation) to ensure resistance and durability on the long run.
Lens wings feature an improved design and can be rotated anytime underwater according to image composition without using any tools. Vertical and horizontal images can be easily captured without having the sun or strobes reflecting on the dome and interfering with crystal clear images.
The lens features a 67mm thread mount, compatible with most housings available in the market today. Perfect to be used with compact, mirrorless or SLR housings. Two different adaptors are included with the lens, to ensure the best fit with all type of housings, sparing the need to solve ahead any compatibility issues or source additional adaptors separately. The base of the mount is covered with a rubber ring, providing a firm grip of the lens during installation and removal. Its narrow design allows using the lens with most lens holders, adaptors, bayonet mount converters, flip mounts and quick release adaptors.
Lens comes with a secure loop installation kit and quick release secure line to ensure the lens is safely secured to the system even when removed from the housing lens port. Non corrosive front and rear lens caps are included in the box. A quality padded carrying case allows safe storage and transportation.Warranty & Best Service
The lens includes warranty against defective materials and workmanship under reasonable use for a period of 1 year. If damaged, the dome of the lens can be replaced with a new one for a discounted price during the 1-year warranty period. In addition, Fantasea offers a professional and responsive service program.
