Canon’s new lens is designed to create content that can be enjoyed in VR

The RF 5.2mm f2.8 L lens also houses two separate lens systems side by side.


Canon recently introduced the RF 5,2 mm f2.8 L Dual Fisheye a lens at the beginning of which we can count more frontal lenses than usual, which a few years ago most people would have looked at in confusion, but now many may have already realized for themselves that the device was invented for the production of VR content.


The lens, which has a weatherproof isolation RF mount and is capable of focusing only manually, houses two separate lens systems 60 mm apart, each containing 12 lens elements, with a focal length of 5.2 mm and a brightness of seven-aperture f2.8 and f16. adjustable between.


Canon’s novelty is the first lens that can project two images from different points on a single full-frame sensor, which the Japanese VR Utility software then combines into a single 180-degree photo or video that can be enjoyed in VR glasses using various algorithms.

The $ 1999 lens can be used with any R-series frame due to the uniform bayonet, but for the perfect end result, Canon recommends using the 45-megapixel R5.
