Altura Photo 8mm f/3.0 Fisheye Lens | FAQs

TheConquerors1066 says:

The discussion around the 7:00 mark about attaching a separate lens to obtain a light meter reading seems needlessly complicated. Not only does that necessitate dragging around another lens just to meter the light, but requires the time to swap lenses as well as possible dirt getting into both lens and body. Seems a silly method.

Is there no means of obtaining a light meter reading in full manual mode? My most primitive SLR film cameras all had light meters. They were full manual, and I have no compunction using a full manual mode, but I would expect the camera to give a light meter reading for guidance. Perhaps your video should be modified to show how to obtain a light meter reading without swapping lenses.

Sahil Borana says:

Will it work well with canon 700d eos?

Alex Lim says:

Not longer unique in its class. You have the Meike 6.5mm F.2.0 Fisheye lens with 190 degree field of view. All metal and glass, and heavy.

Elymaryta Khaoya says:

I find it useless cause it’s a dead lens. That’s rather annoying for HDR photography

For christs sake, less talking salesman, more photos.
