TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2023
AstrHori 28mm F13 2X Macro Probe
From ultra-wide to super telephoto to fisheyes, special-purpose lenses allow for unique exploration of the world around us. This “probe” optic with a maximum magnification ratio of 2:1 offers an aperture range of f/13 through to f/40 with a working distance from the front element of just 0.3 inches (8mm). Both the focusing and aperture rings use M.O.D. gears for connecting to follow focus systems. An integrated LED array on the front lens, with 10 intensity levels, draws power from a separate USB-C port. The light and probe can also be submerged up to 9.8 inches (25cm) for underwater macro capture. Available in numerous camera mounts, it’s one of the most unique lenses TIPA members have seen.
