The compact, single mount design simplifies quick camera setups for professional stereoscopic 180° VR capture, when using compatible high resolution, Full Frame, RF mount cameras, such as the EOS R51 and R5 C.
Featuring a stereoscopic 190° field of view, two offset circular fisheye images are perfectly synchronised and recorded side-by-side onto a single Full Frame sensor, ready for Canon’s powerful EOS VR Utility2/plug-in2 to seamlessly process for final edit, requiring no additional stitching.
Compatible RAW video files taken with supported cameras (including 8K / 60P RAW LT files from the EOS R5 C) are automatically processed within EOS VR Utility, further simplifying a RAW workflow with higher frame rates.
Featuring perfectly aligned, dual forward facing fisheye lenses, the RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE utilises two UD elements per lens to correct for aberrations plus Canon’s special SWC coatings to reduce ghosting and flare, even in backlit conditions.
The RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE performs superbly in low light thanks to a fast f/2.8 aperture with accurately synchronised exposure and precise control via a dual Electro Magnetic Diaphragm (EMD) design.
Because it’s an L-series lens, the RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE is built for professional use. It is dust and splash resistant and features fluorine coatings to repel water and dirt on the lens surface.
The RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE has a rear-mounted gelatin filter holder for pre-cut ND gels which can be used to help precisely control light levels when in use on 180° VR video productions.
