Get yours now and be ready for your cinematography journey! 

Ultra Large T1 Aperture

The ultra-large T1 aperture of the Laowa Argus T1 cine lenses offers the capability to achieve a remarkably shallow depth of field with a smooth focus roll-off, 
immersing the audience in a delightful and dreamy atmosphere, like losing in a reverie.

Shallow Depth of Field & Dreamy Bokeh

The selective focus creates emphasis on the subject and directs the audience’s attention as intended by the filmmaker. 
Additionally, it contributes to a clean frame by effectively blurring the background, making the subjects stand out.

Superb Sharpness and Contrast at T1 Wide Open

While ultra-large apertures often encounter chromatic aberration, the Argus T1 Cine series is meticulously designed to deliver exceptional optical performance. 
These lenses minimize chromatic aberration, ensuring maintained contrast and sharpness even when shooting wide open at T1 aperture.

Impeccable Low-light Shooting Performance

The T1 aperture provides a notable advantage when shooting in low-light conditions. This proves particularly beneficial for productions where additional 
lighting setup is restricted. Filmmakers can capture clean shots without needing to excessively increase the ISO.

Depth of Field Comparison





Close Focusing Distance Up To 7.88” / 0.2m

The series boasts an impressive close focusing distance of up to 7.88″ / 0.2m*. This enables the capture of breath-taking shots with a beautifully blurred background, 
while retaining intricate subject details. It introduces fresh and captivating perspectives to enhance your footage.

Consistent Color Rendition 

& Lens Performance Across The Series

ensuring seamless visual consistency across your projects.
