Nauticam Super Macro Converter (SMC-1)
Nauticam Super Macro Converter SMC-1 #81201
Nauticam's great new Super Macro Converter gives an approximate +15 of magnifying power without any distortion or aberration. Additional macro lenses can also be stacked with it for amazing clarity and enlargement.
There are three key advantages to this internationally patent pending new optical design:
- Higher Magnification Than Other Popular Super Macro Tools with Increased Working Distance
- Better Edge to Edge Image Quality, Higher Contrast, and Lower Color Fringing
- Compatibility with “short” macro lenses that traditionally have not worked well with super macro accessories.
Breakthrough Lens Design
The SMC takes a radically different approach: treat the system - camera, lens, port, air, and water – as a whole, and account for the air-water interfaces in a conversion lens design to achieve the best image quality possible.
Uncompromised Optical Quality
The Super Macro Converter is constructed from lenses are precision crafted of specially formulated low dispersion optical grade glass, ground to the most demanding standards. These optics are assembled in a rugged hard anodized aluminum housing, that's nitrogen purged.
When combined with a full frame camera and a 100mm or 105mm macro lens, provides a maximum of 2.3X magnification factor.
Improved Sharpness and Contrast
Superb Light Transmission
All the lens elements installed inside the SMC are optically optimized.
Optimized for Autofocus
By utilizing a specially developed algorithm in the optimization process, the SMC renders superior image quality.
Ample Working Distance
Even at the maximum 2.3X magnification, there is still more than 50mm of working distance between the front element and the subject with 100/105mm macro lenses for capturing behavior with skittish subjects.
Images taken with this new system exhibit very high resolution and quality.
Due to the overall superior optical performance of the SMC it is possible to shoot larger apertures with excellent image quality. This avoids reaching the diffraction limit of high resolution sensors, and allows selective focus effects with narrow depth of field in super macro images.
