Fisheye lenses are a type of ultra wide angle lens that produces visual distortion where vertical and horizontal lines become more circular in appearance. Creating a 180-degree view, fisheye lenses can produce curved panoramic or hemispherical images. Created in 1906 by physicist and inventor Robert W. Wood, the fisheye camera lens mimics how a fish would see the world beneath the water. Today, it’s easy to find fisheye lenses for popular camera brands like Canon, Sony & Nikon.

The optics in fisheye lenses are highly specialized, often featuring multiple lens elements that contribute to the lens's ability to capture a super-wide field of view. Some fisheye lenses come with advanced coatings to minimize flare and chromatic aberration, enhancing image quality.

Compatible with DSLR or mirrorless cameras, fisheye lenses are available in two types: full frame and circular fisheye lens. Both provide the same visual effects, but full-frame fisheye lenses fill the entire frame from edge to edge, whereas the circular fisheye lens produces an image within a circle surrounded by a black background.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What Is a Fisheye Lens Used for?

The fisheye lens is commonly used for underwater photography, as well as landscape, architecture, and sports photography. A creative lens, fisheye lenses can bring a fresh new perspective on old subjects and the world around you. Step out of your comfort zone and see the world in a new way with the fisheye camera lens.

Is a Fisheye Lens Concave or Convex?

The fisheye lens is convex. Unlike the typical straight-line images or rectilinear images produced by an average lens, the fisheye lens creates a convex image or non-rectilinear image. The fisheye lens uses special mapping, which gives it its unique distortion and convex appearance.

How Do Fisheye Lenses Differ from Other Wide-Angle Lenses?

While both fisheye and other wide-angle lenses offer a broad field of view, fisheye lenses produce a more pronounced distortion and a convex image. This makes them unique in their ability to capture panoramic or hemispherical images.

How Do Fisheye Lenses Affect Image Composition?

Due to their unique distortion, fisheye lenses can dramatically alter the composition of an image, making vertical and horizontal lines curve. This can add an artistic flair or serve a functional purpose, such as capturing a panoramic scene.

Can I Correct Fisheye Distortion in Post-Processing?

Yes, many photo editing software options can correct fisheye distortion to some extent, but this usually results in a loss of image quality and a reduced field of view.

Can I Create a Fisheye Effect Without a Fisheye Lens?

While a true fisheye effect requires a fisheye lens, some software tools can simulate the effect to some degree. Additionally, lens attachments are available that can convert a regular lens to capture a wider field of view, though these won't provide the same quality as a dedicated fisheye lens.

How Do I Focus with a Fisheye Lens?

Many fisheye lenses have a very deep depth of field, meaning that a large portion of the image will be in focus. Some have autofocus, but manual focus is often used for more control.
