Not one of my photos, just something I saw in The Guardian the other day - but does anyone know what this guy has on the front of his camera?  Looks like a torch to me!

Not important, just curious.

I think it's something from Laowa / Venus:

Very cool lens! I was just watching a nature program and was wondering what they used to get some those types of shots.

I was just about to post exactly the same question - an interesting piece of kit

Interesting. Are there any other companies that make lenses like this?

Just checked their website - and I am impressed.  Obviously, they do more than just that long probe but what surprised me was they do stuff (including the probe) for many different cameras.  I thought they might just do Canon fit - or possibly Canon and Nikon - but they cover other brands as well.  Also, the prices do not seem horrendous - certainly not cheap but not as much as might be imagined.

Now back to the lottery numbers..........

It's essentially a borescope lens. They're not particularly rare, but they are at Laowa's price.

We had one when I worked at a weapons range for photographing gun barrel damage, with a 45 degree mirror. It probably cost as much as a car.
