The Model 287 wide angle lens adapter from Resolve Optics Ltd. is designed to provide a true 0.5x field of view (FOV) whilst maintaining minimal distortion and high resolution throughout the zoom range of your camera.
Traditionally lens adapters for zoom lens cameras have offered a compromise between FOV, image distortion and achievable resolution. If the lens achieves the FOV and minimal distortion then the compromise will be the resolution and so on. The result typically is 'milky' out of focus images that get progressively worse the nearer you get to end of your camera’s zoom range.
The compromise free performance of the Model 287 was achieved by designing the adapter to work with the moving pupils of zoom lenses. Its unique design combined with the use of specialised high index glasses carefully balances the provision of a low distortion wide angle view with the higher level of correction needed at the narrow angles of view. The result is a high quality lens that has an unprecedented full 'zoom through' capability resulting in high contrast images regardless of zoom position whilst still maintaining both resolution and focus to the very edges of the image.
Each Model 287 lens adapter from Resolve Optics is individually collimated to maintain the full focus range of the prime lens. Incorporating an M37 mounting thread the Model 287 will enable many zoom lens / camera combinations with a standard 45 degree FOV to achieve a genuine 90 degree field of view.
