Bower SLY8VDS overview

The 8mm T/3.8 Fisheye HD Cine Lens for Sony A DSLR Mount from Bower can shoot both photo and video but has features that make it particularly attractive for shooting video with DSLR cameras. It is an ultra wide-angle lens with a 180º panoramic fisheye perspective. Its silent and smooth aperture transitions and manual focus make it ideal for shooting video and its aperture and focus rings are toothed to provide better grip for follow-focus rigging. Compatible with both full-frame sensors and APS-C sensors, it offers sharp imaging with its 10-element, 1 aspherical optic lens design. A removable petal-type lens hood is included with the lens for stray light deflection and protection of the convex shaped lens.

Designed to work with both full-frame and APS-C DSLRs, providing a 180º angle of view. On full frame cameras, the lens produces a rounded fish-eye perspective with vignetting at the corners. On an APS-C format camera, it produces a fish-eye perspective that fills the frame and is therefore rectangular in shape. 
De-clicked aperture movement and toothed focus and aperture rings for smooth and silent operation while shooting video.
