At the Photokina show Hong Kong firm iZugar were showing a new fisheye lens that is designed with VR applications in mind. It has an extremely compact design and almost infinite depth of focus, yet manages to stay high resolution with far less chromatic aberration than is usually seen on fisheyes at this price point. This makes it highly suitable for VR and iZugar had some convincing results on show.
Although the lens is primarily designed for 360 shooting as part of a camera array, it can also be used as a standalone fisheye for regular video and photo shooting. On a M4/3 sensor the image will appear as a circle with the top and bottom cropped.
On a larger S35 sensor the image appears as a full circle. The lens can easily be adapted to fit Sony E-mount cameras with a simple adapter that iZugar will sell.
For more details keep an eye on the iZugar website over the coming weeks.
