SUNEX LAUCHES FIRST CIRCULAR FISHEYE LENS FOR 1.6x CROP DSLRs WITH 185 DEGRES FIELD OF VIEW
LAS VAGAS, January 31, 2008 – Sunex, Inc. a leading manufacturer of high quality digital imaging lenses announces today the introduction of the first circular fisheye lens for Canon APS-C and Nikon DX format DSLR Cameras with 185° field of view.
The new Sunex SuperFisheyeTM is designed to produce a complete circular image within the camera CMOS/CCD imager giving a true complete 185° field of view. The 185° FOV provides enough overlap and allows stitching software to realize a 360° immersive image with only two shots! Newly available high index glasses are used to achieve sharp images from center to edge while BBAR coatings are applied to all air-glass interfaces to keep overall flare/ghosting at a minimum. Easy to use, the SuperFisheye lens uses optimized fixed aperture and focus to achieve best image quality for panoramic and immersive photography.
- Focal length 5.6mm
- Aperture F/5.6 (fixed)
- 185° field of view
- Image circle: ~14.5mm (optimized for 1.6x crop sensor)
- Depth of field: ~0.5m to infinity
- Size: ~70mmx90mm (dia x length)
- Weight: ~470g
- Mount: Canon and Nikon
In addition, the lens comes with the new Sunex Dewarper DSLR Photoshop compatible plug-in filter for correcting or optimizing distortion. The result is true panoramic picture where the level of distortion can be adjusted to accomplish spectacular creative effects.
“180° panoramic and 360° immersion pictures are more commonly used for art photography; however we believe it will become a powerful promotion tool for the real estate and travel industries by providing enhanced virtual tour experiences. The Sunex SuperfisheyeTM lens is a major step forward in making fisheye technology more accessible to both professional and amateur photographers” said Francois Pelletier, director of Sales and Marketing at Sunex.
