$40 off NEX Fisheye Conversion Lens VCL-ECF1

Here's a nice deal if you have the E-mount 16mm f/2.8. The Sony VCL-ECF1 fisheye converter for the 16mm provides a 180° field of view. The VCL-ECf1's regular price is $150, it is available from Amazon at $110.

The picture below by CrepeFace shows the VCL-ECF1 attached to the 16mm lens next to the 18-55mm OSS lens.

Sony NEX Fisheye Sweep Panoramas

Fotosky came up with a new Sweep Panorama method for the Sony NEX cameras which gives the final image a fisheye effect. This is accomplished by swinging the NEX in an arc. The camera motion is somewhat like a pendulum. This takes some practice. Fisheye 3D Sweep Panoramas should also be possible. We would love to see some of your samples - email us.
