55492inexpensive options for 180 deg fisheye capturing
- Sep 19, 2012Hi all,
I am currently looking into available option for capturing 180 deg
circular fisheyes at rather low prices (limit about 350$).
Basically I find so-called actioncams coming with 170 deg, which would
be enough, but not providing any advanced features on the camera body.
Especially taking raw image files and remot-control is typically not
available. I also have doubts on the optical quality of the very cheap
For compact cameras, there are adapters available, converting down to
f*0.15. This would allow to freely choose the camera for features.
Again, I have my doubts when it comes to the optical quality especially
when using these adapter lenses.
Mirror balls are not an option in this case.
At least 170, better 180 deg circular fov.
Little abberation and vignetting.
What I do not care too much about:
The absolute resolution is not that critical.
Weight, size, handling.
Where should I start?
Thanks, cheers, Lars.
