TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2022
Laowa Argus FF II 35mm F0.95
This f/0.95 maximum aperture lens is suited for many creative applications, including astrophotography, candid still and video imaging, very shallow depth of field portrait and nature studies, and, of course, use in very low light conditions. Another exciting feature for TIPA editors is its 15-blade aperture, which can be used to create remarkable bokeh effects. This manual focus lens offers both a clicked or de-clicked aperture ring for smooth video exposure transitions, with precise focusing control via 300-degree barrel rotation that virtually eliminates the distraction of changes in view when moving focus from one subject to another. Optical build is another plus, with one ED, one aspherical, and four high-refractive-index glass elements.
