Item description

Developed for videography and photography
This Fish-Eye by walimex pro was developed for videography and photography. The f-stop can be adjusted steplessly from 3.8 to 22 and the focus is adjusted softly and runs smoothly. That way a tracking of the focus when filming is possible. The aperture ring and the focus ring come with a tooth ring and are therefore optimized for use with follow focus systems. For better readability, the distance and f-stop scale are displayed sideways.

Unique Shots
The Fish-Eye Lens by walimex pro makes a whole new view of things possible. Due to the unique perspective, your creativity is unlimited. Due to the exceptional depth of focus and the extremely large image angle, all options are open to the adventurous videographer and photographer. The walimex pro Fish-Eye has a focal length of only 8mm. At a minimum distance of only 30cm, exciting wide-angle pictures can be captured in brilliant sharpness. The fast lens speed of 1:3.8 allows excellent filming, even in less favorable lighting conditions.

New possibilities of image composition for moved and still pictures
With the walimex pro Fish-Eye videographers and 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 pictures, which are created with the walimex pro Fish-Eye, receive their typical spherically distorted perspective.

Top-quality workmanship
The lens is constructed in a high-quality manner. The metal casing is very robust and impresses with its classy exterior. 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. A lens hood prevents laterally occurring stray light and lens reflections.

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.
