Unique Shots The Fisheye Lens by walimex pro makes a whole new view of things possible. Due to the unique perspective, your creativity is not limited. Whether in panorama and landscape photography or in narrow rooms, with the walimex pro Fisheye you can achieve brilliant panorama shots. Due to the exceptional depth of focus and the image angle of 180°, all options are open to the adventurous photographer.
Top-quality workmanship The walimex pro Fisheye has a focal length of only 8mm. At a minimum distance of 30cm, exciting wide-angle pictures can already be captured in brilliant sharpness. The fast lens speed of 1:3.5 allows excellent shots even in less favorable lighting conditions. The lens is optimized for DSLR cameras with APS sensors. A lens hood prevents laterally occurring stray light and lens reflections. The glass lenses of the lens are coated and thus ensure a brilliant contrast and sharpness range as well as a well-rounded color balance. The particularly high-quality optics of the lens ensures optimal image results.
New possibilities of image composition With the walimex pro Fisheye photographers receive various possibilities of image composition, especially with spherical panoramas. Straight lines which are not positioned in the middle of the picture will be shown curved and a barrel distortion is the result. This particular lens type has a particularly short focal length for its image format size, which is why the image is displayed with curved forms. That is how photos, which are created with the walimex pro Fish-Eye, receive their typical spherically distorted perspective.
Professional EXIF data transmission The special feature of this lens is the built-in chip, which transmits all technical EXIF data to the camera while taking pictures. That way, you can read out all of the picture's information such as shutter speed, f-stop, ISO data etc. after your shooting and use this information for subsequent analysis and archiving. Like that, you can use your walimex pro lens much more professionally in your photographic work.
Use with full-frame cameras When using the lens on cameras with a full-frame (35 mm) sensor), please note that a partial shadowing (vignetting) will occur. The image section can be expanded by removing the lens hood from the fish-eye, however it cannot be expanded to fill the full frame. The image should be cropped in post-processing to achieve a full image format and to remove the black frame. You can find example images under “Examples of use” in the menu.
