Fantasea and AOI Introduce the UWL-09Pro Wide Angle Lens

fantasea uwl09pro title

Fantasea-AOI have released the powerful UWL-09Pro wide angle wet lens to complement their existing, high-quality range. An exceptionally wide field of view and a zero minimum focus distance allows underwater photographers to capture both panoramic seascapes and close focus images with minimal lens aberration. The 67mm threaded barrel is easily removable and Fantasea has recently launched a bayonet style quick-release mounting system for ease of connection and storage.

High Optical Performance

UWL-09Pro offers unmatched quality with six multi-layered precision optic elements (organized in six groups). Images captured with the lens are exceptionally detailed and feature impressive overall sharpness. The combination of a super wide field of view (130 degrees) and zero minimal focus distance provide unlimited opportunities for image framing and creative compositions, including close focus wide angle and over-under (half/half) split images. Professionally engineered elements eliminate chromatic aberration. The AR (anti-reflection) coating on all glass elements assists in avoiding lens flare from the sun or artificial light sources.

Optical Glass Dome

A quality optical glass dome with multi-layered AR coating reduces flare in images shot against the sun and minimizes reflections produced by artificial lighting. As the glass dome better sheds water, impressive and clean split images (over-under) are easily produced. The optical glass dome is also exceptionally durable.

Durable Construction

The lens barrel is made from durable aluminium alloy with a black hard coating. The dome is covered with a hard coating as well, protecting it from easily getting scratched or damaged. During development, the lens was thoroughly tested in extreme conditions (depth, temperature, salinity and radiation) to ensure resistance and durability in the long run.

Rotatable Wings

Lens wings feature an improved design and can be rotated anytime underwater according to image composition without using any tools. Vertical and horizontal images can be easily captured without having the sun or strobes reflecting on the dome and interfering with crystal clear images.

Universal Compatibility

The lens features a 67mm thread mount, compatible with most housings available in the market today. Perfect to be used with compact, mirrorless or SLR housings. Two different adaptors are included with the lens, to ensure the best fit with all type of housings, sparing the need to solve ahead any compatibility issues or source additional adaptors separately. The base of the mount is covered with a rubber ring, providing a firm grip of the lens during installation and removal. Its narrow design allows using the lens with most lens holders, adaptors, bayonet mount converters, flip mounts and quick release adaptors.

Accessory Package

Lens comes with a secure loop installation kit and quick release secure line to ensure the lens is safely secured to the system even when removed from the housing lens port. Non-corrosive front and rear lens caps are included in the box. A quality padded carrying case allows safe storage and transportation.

Warranty & Best Service

The lens includes a warranty against defective materials and workmanship under reasonable use for a period of 1 year. If damaged, the dome of the lens can be replaced with a new one for a discounted price during the 1-year warranty period. In addition, Fantasea offers a fullservice programme.
