Filming with a budget fisheye
« on: November 22, 2020, 07:45:44 AM »
Hey, i got this fisheye lens. Its not as good as an opteka 0.3x fisheye lens, so when i film with it should i prioritize standing close and getting the skaters legs and obstacle or standing a little further back and getting everything in the picture?

Step back to get the entire skater in the frame. Nothing worse than a line filmed with board or severe head cuts.

I donít know what your setup actually looks like but you should be striving for this:

Maybe use a lots of spacer rings to get the max field of view too.

I used to have the same one, well actually borrowed it from a friend. If you put a few spacers on it youíll get a bit more width. But just film at the appropriate distance, get the whole skater in the shot. Unless your filming with a VX1MK1 thereís no need to be so close. It will help you preserve the life of your lens too not getting hit as often.
