Item description

Developed for videography and photography
With the walimex pro 12/2,2 VDSLR your are well equipped for videography as well as photography, without time consuming changing of lenses. The aperture can be infinitely adjusted, which minimizes transitions in exposure time. Both the aperture ring and the focus ring are provided with a gear rim and have thus been optimized for use with focussing facilities (Follow Focus Systems).

Ideal for landscape, architecture, arts and nude photography
Due to its large picture angle, the walimex pro 12/2.2 VDSLR with its focal length of 12 mm is particularly suitable for expressive landscape, architecture, arts and nude photography. The high lens speed enables a very good exposure time for optimal photos, even under unfavourable light conditions. With manual focussing and aperture setting. The near focussing limit is approx. 20 cm. Lens for system cameras!

Outstanding image quality because of the multi-coated lens areas and the Nano Coating

In order to achieve an excellent imaging quality, great importance was attached to an optimal lens design. All of the 12 glass lenses are multi-coated, which prevents reflections so that more light is made available for the image. Moreover, the coating also enhances the contrast and results in a more brilliant colour rendering. The reduction of reflections is also supported by a nano coating. Two of the 12 lenses are aspherical and ensure optimal correction of spherical image defects. In addition to this, one lens is made of ED-glass (extra low dispersion), whereby chromatic aberrations are optimally corrected.
The wide angle lens is intended for system cameras and impresses with its extremely low weight and the compact design. This all is combined with a very robust metal housing.
