The new Laowa 24mm T14 probe lens Periprobe inherits all the features from Laowa's old probe lens.
It features 85° AoV with a periscope and a very close working distance for a bug-eye perspective.
2x magnification allows for capturing subjects of different sizes with incredible detail. Users can poke the long and waterproof barrel into tight spaces and even underwater to obtain a unique perspective.
LED Ring Lite provides a light source super close to the subject.
Users can easily switch the 90° periscope back to the 0° straight scope.
The lens can rotate 360° along the axis by using the clutch mechanism to unlock the orientation ring.
Additional accessories can also be installed at the thread at the lens tip.

Users can hold up or down the camera with the Periprobe to create a periscope perspective. It is useful when you shoot something unreachable like the tree hole at 7’ to 2m tall or the crab hiding in an underwater cave. It also makes your set-ups easier since you do not need a big tank and waterproof housing for this shot.
It is nearly impossible to travel between objects that are close to each other unless you make a complicated mechanism with programs to move the objects back and forward to prevent from colliding. It is very time-consuming and pain for videographers to have this pre-shoot preparation. With Periprobe, you could simply travel through the tight space by rigging the cameras on sliders and tripods.
With 2x magnification, 85° wide AoV and close working distance, users could create a special close-up face-up and face-down shot that other lenses cannot do.
Release the orientation ring to spin the lens along the axis to create special movements.
It is difficult for photographers to film close to the ground as there are always restrictions in set-ups, like the cameras and the lens itself are always obstacles. You could dig a hole in the ground for the camera for complicated pre-shoot set-ups. Or, with Periprobe, you simply stick the lens tip to the ground.
