Item description

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 Fish-Eye 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 fixed 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 Fisheye, receive their typical spherically distorted perspective.

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 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.
