Recently Meike announced their new 3.5mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye lens. It’s a super low budget extreme wide-angle lens costing a mere $159.99 designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless systems.
New Zealand based Photographer and filmmaker Richard Wong has been playing with one for a little while. In this video, he goes over it in quite some depth offering up his thoughts about the new lens and puts it side-by-side against the similarly-ludicrously-wide Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens.
The old cries of “If you want to shoot video, get a video camera!” are becoming fewer and fewer these days. Which makes sense given that DSLRs and mirrorless cameras basically are video cameras these days. And just like “real video cameras”, you need to bolt on extra bits to really get the most out of them.
Hybrid shooter and YouTuber Jason Vong talks about his 5 must-have budget accessories for the Sony A6300 and A6500 cameras in this recent video. It’s a good list of handy tools that many of us will need when shooting video.
Meike has just announced their new 6-11mm f/3.5 fisheye for full frame and APS-C Nikon and Canon DSLRs. It’s a manual focus lens offering a 180-degree field of view on both full frame and APS-C sensors. There isn’t much information on it besides that, though, and there are no sample images yet.
