Backscatter M52 Underwater 0.50X 120° Wide Angle Wet Lens



The Backscatter M52 Wide Angle Wet Lens was designed with the Olympus Tough TG 1 through 6 series of cameras in mind. With a 120 degree angle of coverage, sharp corners, and no vignetting at 24 mm this lens is the perfect combination for the first time wide-angle shooter with a TG camera.

120 Degrees of Coverage
Shipwrecks, stingrays, sharks, reefs, divers. These are the subjects where you need a wide-angle lens. Getting wider allows you to get closer to your subject while still maintaining a wide field of view and increases clarity and contrast of your image.

24mm, No Vignetting, Sharp Corners
The Backscatter M52 wide-angle wet lens was designed to be used with 24mm equivalent cameras. Other lenses wide-angle wet lenses vignette (dark or clipped corners) at 24mm that require zooming to eliminate and have blurry corners. Our lens has no vignetting at 24mm and sharp corners.

Anti-Reflection Coating
The dome unit has an anti-reflection coating to cut down on glare and lens flares in your images.

Zoom Through Capability for Tighter Shots
Depending on the camera used, the internal zoom of the camera can be used up to 75% of the zoom range allowing you to reframe and get tighter shots without having to remove the wide-angle lens.

Easy to Use
The lens threads directly onto any Olympus TG series 1 through 6 housing, no adaptors required. There is an ergonomically placed silicone grip for easy threading. The lens shade has a smooth and easy rotation with the perfect balance between tension and maneuverability, with no tools needed.

Small Size and Easy to Travel
The Backscatter M52 wide-angle wet lens is one of the smallest lenses out there for the angle it covers. It comes with a neoprene dome cover, rear lens cap, and custom fit Backscatter hardshell travel case.
