Product selling point: [Small space shooting]: Due to the special structure of the front section, it can solve the purpose of shooting in narrow space. Wide-angle macro with large depth of field, including more subjects. The slender structure of the mirror body can be used for shooting in small spaces such as macro model building, food scenery, and animal caves. It can also keep a certain working distance from the subject, without affecting the subject to create a more shocking picture.

2x magnification macro: 2x magnification allows photographers to show more details in content shooting. Compared with other macro lenses, it provides a greater depth of field, and it is more convenient for photographers to show macro details and backgrounds with a wide-angle field of view.
