The Backscatter M52 wide angle wet lens was designed with the Olympus TG cameras in mind. The 52mm threaded mount is compatible with Olympus underwater housings for TG-1 through Olympus TG-5. With a 120-degree angle of coverage, sharp corners, and no vignetting at 24mm, this lens is the perfect combination for the first time wide angle shooter.







120 Degrees Of Coverage

The Backscatter M52 wide angle lens is perfect for shooting shipwrecks, sharks, whales, stingrays, mantas and other large subjects. Using a wide-angle lens allows shooters to get closer to their subjects and still fill the frame. This increases the clarity and contrast of your image. If you’re using strobes, getting closer will also allow more light to hit your subject, improving both color and exposure.















24mm, No Vignetting, Sharp Corners

The Backscatter M52 wide angle wet lens was designed to be used with 24mm equivalent compact cameras. Other wide angle wet lenses vignette (dark or clipped corners) at 24mm, which requires the shooter to zoom to eliminate the dark or blurry effect in the corners. The Backscatter M52 wide angle lens has no vignetting at 24mm and maintains extremely sharp corners.



Anti-Reflection Coating

The dome unit has an anti-reflection coating to cut down on glare and lens flares in your images.



Zoom Through Capability for Tighter Shots

Depending on the camera used, the internal zoom of the camera can be used up to 75 percent of the zoom range allowing you to reframe and get tighter shots without having to remove the wide angle lens.







Easy to Use

The lens threads directly onto the Olympus PT housings for TG camera series 1 through 5, including the Olympus PT-056 and Olympus PT-058 Housings. No adapters are required. There is an ergonomically placed silicone grip on the lens for easy threading. The lens shade has a smooth and easy rotation with the perfect balance between tension and maneuverability. No tools are needed to adjust the shade.



Small Size and Easy to Travel

The Backscatter M52 wide angle wet lens is one of the smallest lenses out there for the angle it covers. It comes with a neoprene dome cover, rear lens cap, and custom fit Backscatter hardshell travel case.
