Nodal Ninja Replacement Mount for Changing Samyang 7.5mm Lens to Sony E-Mount
Order now add yourself to our waiting list.
Today's orders are expected to ship on January 21.
Samyang 7.5mm F3.5 M43 fisheye is a sharp full frame (180 degree diagonal angle of view) fisheye, originally made for Micro Four Thirds (M43) system. It requires 5-6 shots around plus top and bottom shots to complete a spherical panorama. It is found that when adapted to a camera with APS-C (larger) sensor, it will give a 180 degree coverage along the width of image sensor with high sensor area utilization and high image quality. Only 4 shots around are necessary to complete a spherical panorama. It is very small and light-weight. Together with a matching pano head such as Nodal Ninja R1 and R10, it is the ideal portable set up for making quick single row spherical panorama. Due to small differences in flange distances between M43 and target cameras, a good adapter is not possible. Besides, the original lens hood will also need to be "shaved" to remove blockage of the lens angle of view. Therefore Nodal Ninja offers an easy to use complete conversion tool kit for Sony E-Mount.
