SAGA announces the Trio lens
Saga Dive announces the release of its new macro lens: Trio, which was presented at DEMA Show 2016.
This revolutionary lens is the most advanced wet magnification systems available at the moment. The patented two lever system makes it possible for the photographer to easily change magnification, even while they are looking through the viewfinder, enabling switching between differing magnification ratios in the minimum time possible but with the maximum optical quality.
The new lens, Trio, is designed to be used with macro lenses as the Canon 100mm or the Nikon 105mm but it can also be used with some other lenses, such as the canon or Nikon 60mm macro lenses. It has been tested with the Sigma 150mm and Canon 180mm too.
Manufactured from hard anodized machined aluminum, the Trio has two groups of lenses inside: One with a +5 diopter and the other with a +10. These two groups can be moved independently, allowing 4 possible levels of magnification. With the the two levers in their upper position, there is no magnification, which gives infinite focus without any vignetting.
The lens is attached to the port via a 67mm thread. If your port doesn’t have a 67mm, Saga Dive have an adaptor for any type of macro port.
Once attached, the lens can be rotated in order to place the lens in any preferred position and to allow proble free strobe positioning.
The lens it will be shipping from mid January.
