Product selling point: [Small space shooting]: Due to the special structure of the front section, it can solve the purpose of shooting in narrow space. Wide-angle macro with large depth of field, including more subjects. The slender structure of the mirror body can be used for shooting in small spaces such as macro model building, food scenery, and animal caves. It can also keep a certain working distance from the subject, without affecting the subject to create a more shocking picture.

2x magnification macro: 2x magnification allows photographers to show more details in content shooting. Compared with other macro lenses, it provides a greater depth of field, and it is more convenient for photographers to show macro details and backgrounds with a wide-angle field of view.

Excellent Portability: The lens can be detached into 2 sections and stored separately. Provides portability for photographers on the go.

Front-end waterproof design: The front 25cm of the lens adopts waterproof treatment, and the sapphire glass is anti-fragile and scratch-resistant, so that the lens can be shot deep into the water (250mm) to meet the needs of some special environments.

There is a high-power fill light at the front of the lens: Enter animal caves, pipes, narrow and long gaps, outdoor dark light, inside small objects, product details. To meet the daily shooting, the light uses a voltage of 5v and a current of 1 amp. Power is 5w

Waterproof protective lens is made of sapphire material: The waterproof protective lens in front of the lens is made of sapphire material, (the main component of the sapphire lens is aluminum oxide, and impurities such as iron oxide and titanium oxide are removed.)
High hardness, wear resistance, and not easy to scratch. It increases the service life of the product and the application scenarios during use.
