Convert your Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D to a Wide Angle SHIFT lens. Just like Magic.
A carefully designed and patented optical system in the adapter converts the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D to a 17mm f/4 lens with +/- 10mm Shift capability without any vignetting. The adapter is designed to use with Canon/Nikon mount lenses and Sony Full Frame E-mount cameras. It may also work with other ultra-wide angle lenses.
The aperture dial on Nikon F/G adapter is designed to provide aperture control for Nikon G-type lenses, which do not have an aperture ring. No such feature on Canon mount.
Remarks: The Laowa Magic Shift Converter is designed to fit with SONY E-mount cameras together with Canon/Nikon lenses. It does NOT work with Canon or Nikon cameras. And it does NOT work with Sony E-mount lens too.
This adapter has no electronics contact which means that the aperture & auto-focusing of Canon AF lenses may not work.
WHAT IS IT?
Laowa Magic Shift Converter (MSC) is an adapter designed to convert the Canon / Nikon mount) lens into a professional +/-10mm Shift lens and use it with the Sony full frame E-mount cameras. With the MSC, you can have absolute vertical lines rather than converging lines while shooting. This is a super useful feature in architecture and interior photography. It not only works well with Laowa lenses but also lenses from other manufacturers.
Laowa Magic Shift Converter (MSC) took advantage of the short flange distance of mirrorless cameras and incorporated a patented optics system into the converter.
The patented optical system in the MSC will enlarge the image circle of the 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D from 43.2mm to 60mm in diameter and convert it a 17mm f/4 lens with +/- 10mm shift capability. The camera can be rotated in a 360 full circle, allowing a quick switch between landscape and portrait framing or to change the shift direction.
LAOWA MSC comprises of 5 elements in 4 groups, with 2 Extra Refractive glasses. The optical structure is carefully designed which gives minimal impact on the image quality of our Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D. It will also cancel out some of the chormatic aberrations and distortion of some ultra-wide angle lenses. Our close-to-zero distortion feature can also be retained.
