What is a fisheye lens good for?

A fisheye lens is an extreme wide-angle optic that allows you to capture a distinctive and distorted view of the world. They are used in both stills photography and video recording, and you can even get adapters for some smartphones that allow you to simulate the dramatic ultra-wide effect.

What mm lens is fisheye?

Mass-produced fisheye lenses for photography first appeared in the early 1960s and are generally used for their unique, distorted appearance. For the popular 35 mm film format, typical focal lengths of fisheye lenses are between 8 mm and 10 mm for circular images, and 15–16 mm for full-frame images.

What can I shoot with a fisheye lens?

The fisheye lens is useful for a number of photographic styles. The distorted nature of the images created makes the lens great for extremely wide angle, such as catching a stadium or a crowd. You can also create the impression that you’re looking at someone through a peephole, or create a drunk effect on the image.

Does NASA use fisheye lens?

NASA has created a new Ultra High Definition (4K) 18-minute video of the ISS, using a fish-eye lens for extreme focus and depth.

Why are fisheye lenses so expensive?

The lens typically holds more glass and ends up to be bigger and heavier than a standard lens. This drives the price of the lens up.

What is macro lense?

A macro lens is a special type of camera lens that has the ability to work with very short focusing distances, taking sharp images of very small subjects. A true macro lens has a magnification ratio of 1:1 (or greater), and a minimum focussing distance of around 30cm.

Why is my macro camera blurry?

The cause of images ruined by camera shake is a shutter speed setting that is too slow. In this case, the solution is very straightforward: choose a faster shutter speed. A good general rule for selecting a shutter speed is that the inverse of the shutter speed should not be shorter than the focal length of the lens.
