Seacam Shipping Achromat 4.0 Supermacro Lens and Flip System
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, February 10, 2023 @ 01:00 AM (EST)

Seacam is now shipping its new Achromat 4.0 MICRO LENS and flip system. The supermacro lens achieves an impressive magnification of 4:1—double the magnification of the company’s original Achromat 2.0. Like the original lens, the 4.0 MICRO LENS features a standard 67mm thread and is designed for use with Seacam’s MIP 60 microport and MIP 80 microport.

Both the new Achromat 4.0 and the original Achromat 2.0 supermacro lenses can be paired with Seacam’s new flip system, which mounts on their MIP 60 or MIP 80 microports. The Single Flip Adapter Base is designed for one lens, and with the Dual Flip Adapter Extension can accommodate two lenses.

Available now from retailers such as Backscatter, the Achromat 4.0 MICRO LENS costs $1,185, while the Single Flip Adapter Base and the Dual Flip Adapter Extension cost $430 and $225, respectively. Seacam’s MIP 60 microport and MIP 80 microport both retail for $460, while the Achromat 2.0 retails for $480.
