Hello Everyone,

 

I played around with the circular end of the 8-15mm fisheye on a few dives in Komodo.  It is kind of fun.  I thought motion made it more interesting.  The distortion and view of the reef is interesting as well.  It certainly isn't something you would film with on a regular basis.  Unless you had a specific idea you were going for.  I am curious to know if there is a way to make the circle not cut off on the top and bottom.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

If you get a lens is too small for the sensor, you'll get a complete circle...

It has a fun "looking down on the planet" feel.

I liked the effect for some of the clips, (e.g. the turtle and the flat table corals).  I didn't like the spinning globe effect that you used a couple of times - had to grip the arms of my chair.  But a couple of these inserted carefully into a normal wide-angle sequence would be quite a powerful way of grabbing an audience - as long as you don't make them seasick!

Thanks for the feedback peter. But I think you are right, in the right circumstance it could be used.
