Laowa 10mm FIRST RESULTS Underwater with the Sony a7CR [VIDEO]

Laowa 10mm FIRST RESULTS Underwater with the Sony a7CR [VIDEO]

Underwater photographers around the world took notice when Venus Optics dropped the Laowa 10mm f/2.8 Zero-D FF Autofocus Lens. This Sony mount lens is touted as the "World's Widest Rectilinear Lens" and we couldn't wait to see how it performed underwater in terms of autofocus performance, low light captures, and edge sharpness behind a dome port. We weren't disappointed.


The Laowa 10mm f/2.8 retails at only $800 in the US making it an affordable option for ultra-wide angle photography underwater.

This footage was shot by Nirupam Nigam ‪of Bluewater Photo Store‬ with the high-resolution Sony a7CR camera inside the Ikelite 200DLM/A Underwater Housing and large-diameter DLM 8" Dome Port.
