Despite its name, the Dual Fisheye lens was actually inspired by the human face. Featuring two round lenses about the same size and distance apart as a pair of human eyes, the first-of-its-kind lens captures 180 degrees in 8K-equivalent resolution when mounted to Canon’s EOS R5 and EOS R5c mirrorless cameras. According to Canon USA’s Brandon Chin, the compact, award-winning lens simplifies 3D image capture by eliminating the need to stitch together multiple images from multiple cameras, putting high-end VR content creation within reach for more visual artists.
