Anhui China, Jan 22, 2021 – Venus Optics, the camera lenses manufacturer who has been endeavoring to invent unique lenses, announces the availability of 1.4x Full Frame Expander and 1.33x Rear Anamorphic Adapter with PL-PL mount. The recommended retail price in the United States (without tax) is USD 999/pc, which may vary in different countries.


Laowa 1.33x Rear Anamorphic Adapter
When pairing with the OOOM, Laowa 1.33X Rear Anamorphic Adapter allows expanding your filming canvas to a 2.35:1 cinematic widescreen ratio in a 16:9 sensor while retaining the resolution.  Although it does not produce oval bokeh and expands horizontal field of view like front anamorphic lenses does, it still introduces cinematic characters over your spherical lenses and creates a distinctive look on the flares and bokeh.

There will be a half stop light impact on the lens after the anamorphic adapter is installed.

Laowa 1.4x Full Frame Expander
Laowa 1.4X Full Frame Expander expands the coverage from Super35 into full-frame without affecting its image quality. Outstanding from other expanders in the market, the Laowa 1.4x Expander is designed to offset the aberrations found on the OOOM and maintains its vintage characters and excellent optical performance.

There will be a 1-stop light loss and 1.4x impact on the focal range, making OOOM a 35-140mm T4 lens. A quick switch button is designed on the OOOM to allow easy conversion of focal length & t-stop scale.

Simple Back Focus Adjustment
Laowa specially designed a back-focus-adjusting mechanism on the 1.4x Expander which replaces the time-consuming and tedious procedure of back focus adjustments by shims.

High Build-Quality with Protective Case
The 1.33x Adapter and 1.4x Expander are built with metal which is durable for different challenging filming environment. A protective case would also be provided for individual adaptor or bundles for safe transport.

Clearance Check Tool
Laowa 1.33x Rear Anamorphic Adapter and 1.4x Full Frame Expander can be used with other cine lenses in the market. Tools are available for clearance check. Users may print out and compare the mount part of their lenses to ensure compatibility.
