Lomography has announced Fisheye Baby 110 Camera, a cheap toy camera that actually takes photos. The very name is pretty self-explanatory: the camera features a fisheye lens, uses Lomography’s 110 film, and the “Baby” in the name refers to its small size. So, let’s see what this baby can do.
Early last week, 7Artisans teased a couple of new lenses on Chinese social media. Now, one of those lenses has been announced. It was initially assumed that this was going to be a lens designed for drones, due to the DJI Inspire in the background of the teaser photo, but it’s actually designed for use with APS-C (Sony E, Fuji X, Canon EF-M but no Nikon Z, apparently) and Micro Four Thirds cameras.
The new 7Artisans 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye is an APS-C lens that offers a whopping 225° field of view, which means it can pretty much see behind itself. It has an all-metal construction, but given its relatively low weight of 210g, they also say it can be mounted on the DJI Inspire X5 cameras for a “unique perspective” that hasn’t been possible from the air before.
Tokina has just announced an SZ 8mm F2.8 FISH-EYE lens. It’s designed for mirrorless cameras and it comes in two mount variants: Fuji X and Sony E.
This lens is compact and lightweight, fast, and can focus pretty close. Because of all this, it wants to be a lens that you’ll always have in your bag.
Pergear has launched their new 10mm f/8 fisheye pancake lens. It’s available in an array of APS-C mounts including Fuji X, Sony E and Nikon Z as well as Micro Four Thirds. It has a fixed f/8 aperture as well as a focus with a range of only 30cm up to infinity. It’s a tiny lens measuring a mere 55mm x 10mm, weighing only 80g and it’s designed specifically for mirrorless cameras.
Pergear has announced their new 7.5mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens for Micro Four Thirds and APS-C mirrorless systems including Nikon Z, Canon EF-M, Sony E and Fuji X. At $129, this manual focus lens is aimed squarely at low budget shooters looking to add a bit more fun to their photography.
The lens features a full metal body construction, weighing in at around 320g. As it’s a fisheye, there’s no front filter thread, due to the bulbous front element. Although it’s a manual focus lens, infinity sits at around the 1-metre mark, so as long as you’re not doing anything super close-up, the entire world is in focus.
If you like fisheye lenses, here’s a real treat. C-4 Precision Optics 4.9mm f/3.5 Hyper Fisheye pretty much reveals in its name what it’s capable of. The “hyper fisheye” lens offers a 270° field of view, or in other words- it can see behind itself. But this impressive feature comes with a price – and the price is $39,000.
It was recently rumoured that Laowa was getting ready to announce their 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens on three new mounts. Specifically, the APS-C formats for Sony E, Canon EF-M and Fuji X. There was no news about when, just that they’d been spotted on Weibo.
The Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens has been out for Micro Four Thirds since August last year, and at a hair under $200, it’s an absolute bargain. The new mounts for Sony, Canon and Fuji retain the same price, and shipping now.
Back in August 2019, Venus Optics launched Laowa 4mm f/2.8 fisheye lens, priced at only $199. It was originally created for MFT mount only, but Venus Optics will soon give you more options. The Laowa 4mm f/2.8 fisheye lens is coming soon in three new mounts: Sony E, Fuji X, and Canon EF-M.
