A compact camera underwater is only as good as the optics in front of it, and the growing Nauticam accessory lens lineup sets new performance standards with every release. On the macro end, the Compact Super Macro Converter (CMC) is the ideal choice and enables a subject 35mm wide by 23mm tall to fill the frame. This is over 4x magnification provided by the stock lens (stock lens images 160mm wide, CMC 35mm wide).
All Nauticam lenses are engineered specifically for underwater imaging, not waterproof adaptations of lenses designed for use in air, resulting in superior image quality. The CMC provides visibly sharper images than competing macro lenses, especially in the corders, with noticeably less purple fringing. The lens design is also designed with autofocus systems in mind, easing the learning curve associated with high magnification imaging.
Nauticam's latest unveil; the first in a series of wide angle conversion lenses engineered with the same level of precision and vision that has gone into the "best in class" Macro Converter line. This completely sealed and underwater mountable optic is designed to be used in water - with the refractive index of optical glass to water accounted for at every step in the design process. Optimized for best wide angle performance at the 28mm equivalent focal length, the lens offers 130° diagonal field of view with low distortion, extremely high overall sharpness (especially in the corners), excellent contrast, and resistance to flare.
The outstanding image quality of today's top compacts paired with Nauticam conversion lenses is stunning. They combine to form a complete system that covers the entire range from macro to super wide angle, and packs into a small backpack or shoulder bag,
