Backscatter M52 Wide Angle Air Lens Review


Backscatter M52 Air Lens Video Link

The Backscatter M52 Wide Angle Air Lens is a wet-mount wide angle conversion lens designed to work best with Olympus TG series cameras. The lens cancels out refraction and restores the camera’s topside field of view underwater while also enhancing the image clarity, sharpness, and contrast. With an 81° angle of coverage, sharp corners, no vignetting at 24mm, and an easy to use 52mm threaded mount, this lens is perfect for both veteran and new wide angle underwater photographers. It’s the most versatile lens for shooting both macro and wide angle on the same dive with the Olympus TG-5 because you never have to remove the lens.

  2. This looks like a really interesting option. I'd love to see some side-by-side UW macro shots with this lens and with no lens as you've got with the wider shots. I just did a dive last week with some large siphonophores in the water column and was really missing a few more degrees of FOV.<br />-----<br />
