Oooh I need one of those. Problem is, they seem to use the outdated ‘Series’ moniker which has been abandoned since the sometime in the 1970s. I cannot find a ‘Series’ equivalent to 49 mm, so which one did you buy? (On fleabay many are advertised as Series VII/52 mm but Series VII = 50.8 mm)
I bought a 49mm dia series VII
Hope that helps
Not really. Even more confused now. Guess I’ll not bother.
But thank you for answering.
There is one here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/jessop-semi-fish-eye-attachment-lens-/172827194571?hash=item283d4db4cb:g:F~UAAOSw1blZmEhO but it looks like its got another thread adapter screwed into the 49mm, but this should come off, giving you a 49mm thread only £5 at the moment
A couple of months ago i had the same idea, using a 49mm thread fisheye for skate photography on my X100T. Hm now I’m triggered again … btw interesting results!
You will need the WCL as well to get a full circle, without the WCL you get a fish eye effect with a wider image but the circle is chopped top and bottom. Interestingly you will have to shoot RAW as well, as the in camera JPG processing automatically chops a small amount off top and bottom of the circle with the in-built WCL distortion correction (of course you don’t have to tell the camera that you have a WCL fitted)
Hope you find one, and enjoy it.
