The RF5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye captures 180-degree 3-Dimensional (3D) stereoscopic visuals by using the parallax of the left and right fisheye lenses. This design enables a single sensor to receive light from both lenses, simplifying the recording of Virtual Reality (VR) videos via a single camera.
Conventional VR recording requires aligning of two cameras and syncing of camera positions prior to shoot. Additional processes like colour matching and stitching are typically required as well after shooting. With the single-sensor recording capability of the RF5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye, such hassles are now eliminated.
A More Efficient Workflow
The RF5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye enables recording on a single camera with one CMOS image sensor, thereby eliminating certain stages from the workflow that were previously necessary with a two-camera system, such as aligning the positions and synchronising the settings of the left and right cameras before the shoot, or the need to stitch images in post-production.
