When you need to get the widest possible angle of view, add the Super Fisheye Adapter. The Super Fisheye produces an extraordinary degree of barrel distortion with a magnification factor of approximately .55x. Adding the Super Fisheye to HVX200's 13x Zoom Lens, results in a 92° horizontal angle of view. It comes in our popular Bayonet Mount that attaches with a twist to the front of the lens.
While extreme telephoto shots tend to flatten the subject against the background, the Super Fisheye exaggerates depth, pulling nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background. Due to the Super Fisheye Adapter's characteristic barrel distortion, extreme low and high-angle shots are made more dramatic. An attic crawl space induces heightened claustrophobia. A forest of tall skyscrapers bend menacingly over the audience.
Because the Century Super Fisheye takes in a much wider angle of view than the human eye, it may be used to visually plunge the audience into a scene, surrounding them with a noisy crowd or exiling them to a lonely beach.
