EXCLUSIVE ! NANOHA 5X ultra macro lens M43 -quick and first hands-on
I've just receveid the Nanoha Macro 5X lens, micro 4/3 mount !
It's an amazing lens that is opening to me the very macro world. It has a lighting LED unit, you can plug it with USB cable, on your computer for example. You also have a target holder to maintain the object in front of the lens to avoid motion blur. I did not use it on this movie, except on the euro bill shot and the alone hair.
Not so easy to film nano objects, the D.O.P is very short. The focusing point is 11mm from the lens top. You can adjust the point about 8mm with focusing ring. The magnification will be changed between x5 to x4 with focusing.
This is a first quick test, hope you will enjoy it.
From Nanoha website (yasuhara.co.jp/nanoha/index-e.html):
