As TINY as an egg, this creative lens has its place in your pocket.

With only 135g, you can literally put it in your pocket and pull it out for some special shots at any time. The compact size and lightweight also make it perfect for various shooting set up such as selfies, vlog, skateboard shooting, 360° panorama, VR imaging, virtual tours or even fly with drones. Smarten up your aerial shots with an angle that no one else has ever seen. The only limit is your imagination.

Avantgarde shots under low-light conditions.

Despite its petite body, this lens features a fast maximum aperture at f/2.8. When more light gets in, photographers can enjoy higher flexibility in the creation of avant-garde, gimmicky shots even under low-light conditions. See how this lens makes a little twist on traditional astrophotography, adding extra fun to the starry night and nightscape shots.

Focus as close as 8cm

The 3.1″ (8cm) closest focus distance (object to the sensor) means that you can focus any objects at a finger away. It enables photographers to get really close to the subject and emphasize the details. The exaggerating angle of view will also provide alternatives to make fun of the amusing big-headed animals (including your friends). You may need to forget the rules of composition for one moment and take advantage of the extreme distortion to create an impactful image.

Huge depth of field

Simply stop down the aperture to f/5.6 (or above), you can concentrate on your compositions without worrying about focusing. The huge depth of field can cover almost everything in the scene.

Outstanding sharpness

The image sharpness of the 4mm is incredible. The lens not just sharp at the centre, but also produce a clear image at the edge. This would be very useful when de-fishing the image or cropping out the center part for an ultra-wide angle shot.

360° Panorama & VR Imaging

Attributed to the ultra wide 210º FOV, you can easily create a full 360º panorama using a maximum of 2-3 images as opposed to shooting 6 images or more with conventional fisheye lenses. This lens is also particular good for VR photography and shooting virtual tour.

Apart from the 360 degrees panorama, the spherical panorama is also possible with this tiny fisheye lens. You can start creating your own tiny planet.

To fish, or not to fish?

HFR HD crop

Another good application of the 4mm is to use on Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera under HFR HD Crop mode. Due to the outstanding sharpness and ultra-wide 210° angle of view, the image still looks crispy after cropping the black area away. The HD crop successfully eliminates the black circle in the frame and transform the lens into a budget ultra-wide angle lens.
De-Fishing Image
You can also de-fish the images to get some ultra-wide angle shots. The sharpness of the 4mm helps to retain a clear image after the de-fishing process.

Vertical or Horizontal crop

Want something more special? Simply crops out the middle part to create an xpan style shot.
