Need fun and inspiration- get a Fisheye lens!

Wilhelm von S., WEX

  • Summary: Lens is quite light and great to include when travelling to get some fun perspectives. Used it for some interiors as an alternative to an ultra-wide angle and with de-fish eyeing software and results look very professional.For a bit of fun especially with camera-shy kids you can get them to pull...
  • Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Close Up Focussing

Great Creative Lens

Carl, WEX
16 July 2015
  • Summary: Even at minimum focus distance from subject, the subject looks like it's miles away from you; then you look away from the viewfinder and realise you're only about 30cm from the subject.With 180° FOV, watch out for your feet keep appearing in the shot!
