Nauticam EMWL 100¬∞ Objective Lens
Nauticam EMWL 100° Wide Objective Lens
The Nauticam EMWL 100° Objective Lens is an extremely versatile angle of view. It is the smallest and sleekest in physical size making it a good choice for timid subjects and tight spaces. It is designed with 9 elements in 6 groups. An angle of view of 100° is still a lot of background space for small macro subjects or to shoot wide angle with. A 16mm lens on FF is 107° for comparison.
The EMWL Objective Lenses offer a free of flexibility not seen before. There are three different versions with varying degrees of angle-of-view. You would choose one based on the look, subject or type of image you would like to produce. These, like the other two parts, can all be put together and disassembled underwater. You could keep all three objective lenses with you and swap out when needed. You can shoot these just like you would any other lens, but the real magic happens when you get up close to your subject. All three objective lenses will focus as close as the front element with the correct setting. You could fill up most of the frame with a nudibranch and still have room for a diver in the background! The EMWL is a great tool to boost your creativity.
