    Underwater Micro Semi-Fisheye Relay Lens "UFL-MR130 EFS60"


    Underwater Micro Semi-Fisheye Relay Lens "UFL-MR130 EFS60" installed on Canon "EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM" / "MRS60 Port II" + "X-2 for EOS50D/40D 45VF"


Product features
--Wide-macro imaging of a tiny subject in entire image--

    The UFL-MR130 EFS60 carries super compact φ24mm subject side lens yet provides ultra wide (underwater view angle 130.172°) view angle for APS-C format camera enabling capture a tiny subject in entire image and underwater landscape as background together with 0cm minimum focusing distance, which is not possible with conventional fisheye lens carrying standard lens aperture. INON offers unique underwater world imaging with UFL-MR130 EFS60 supporting ultra wide, deep depth of field and super close-up performance

--Advantageous long lens barrel to approach a shy subject--

    Built-in relay lens system provides approx. 312mm lens barrel together with small subject lens size enabling you to approach shy subjects more easily without scaring them.

--Exclusively designed for high image quality Canon "EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM"--

    The UFL-MR130 EFS60 has been designed from nothing exclusively for Canon "EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM" lens / INON "X-2" housing system to suppress aberrations effectively to enhance optimum performance as underwater super wide/ultra semi-fisheye conversion lens.Low reflecting multi coating on all optical lens surfaces exposing to air out of 14 elements in 11 groups lens construction helps to keep inner diffused reflection to a minimum together with reflection-free coating on the inner surface of the lens barrel.

--Simple screw mount on dedicated port [MRS60 Port II]--

    The "UFL-MR130 EFS60" is simply screwed on the front of INON MRS60 Port II and no need to make complicated setting.Double O-ring construction on the mount part to prevent accidental flooding.

--Port Arm product to expand lighting gears--

    Dedicated strobe/LED flashlight arm "Port Arm for UFL-MR130 EFS60" will be released in October 2009(*1).Maximum three Port Arms can be attached on the "UFL-MR130 EFS60" to set-up compact lighting system.

Before purchasing "UFL-MR130 EFS60"

    This product is a unique conversion lens to shoot specific subjects.Please carefully read through following characteristics before purchasing this product.


  • The UFL-MR130 EFS60 is dedicated conversion lens for INON X-2 housing and INON "MRS60 Port II" is necessary to attach on the housing. This product is precisely designed including distance between all optical elements and optical axis specifically to use for INON "X-2"and compatible lens port and not usable for other manufactures' housing carrying different optical design and/or optical axis misalignment.


  • S-TTL Auto and other auto exposure mode is not usable due to optical characteristic(overexposed) When using an external strobe, use "External Auto" where a strobe controls exposure or "Manual" mode.


  • Stop down aperture as much as possible to accommodate with the optical characteristic of ultra wide/super compact fisheye lens and 0cm focusing distance. We would recommend shooting F13 - F32. In case of underexposure, use higher ISO setting to compensate it. The more you open the aperture, the more you have significant aberration on image periphery part.


  • AF (auto focus) is not practicable due to extremely shallow depth of field. Attach "MRS Magnet Ring 60 Set" on the lens and shoot with MF (manual focus).


  • "45°Viewfinder Unit for X-2" or "Straight Viewfinder Unit for X-2" which provides x1.0 viewfinder image, is recommended to assist focusing within shallow depth of field.
