Fisheye Landscape Photography with the Canon 8-15mm

I go out on a beautiful autumn photo walk with the Canon 8-15mm f/4 L Fisheye USM zoom lens, so see how well it works for landscape and nature photography.

Nice video 🙂
For experiments I buy Samyang 8mm f/3,5 – for APSC ( canon 600D ) is good choice for me – like it.

In a related fashion , I really enjoy the Tokina 11-16mm ultrawide for DX (APSC) cameras.
It’s super sharp and an aspherical lens .

Marc Synwoldt says:

Just for the record, Pentax has had an inexpensive but capable fisheye zoom lens for APS-C, the DA10-17, since 2006. There’s also a Tokina clone for other mounts. Of course, that doesn’t take anything away from the beautifully-performing more recent Canon and Nikon zooms for Full Frame.

By the Way. I have tried extension Tubes on my wideangel zoom from 16-35mm and I found a sweet Spot at 20-24mm. Mabe it work different on every lens. But the extension Taubes need to be as short as possible.

Damn I love your vids, so relaxing and peacefull… I wish I had time and motivation to go around like that, walking alone in nature 😡

It would be fun to hear what You think about the final images when You came home and looked at your resultat =)

Amit Raam says:

Image at 09:05 is a winner for me, the looming effect created by the fisheye adds some menacing to the picture.
09:50, awesome, too!

Mark Wilder says:

Nice video. I’ve owned this lens for years and use it a lot with weddings. One tip if you didn’t already know: for 8mm photos, the pic will look a lot better if you crop out the black borders by using a square crop.

Leonardo Moret says:

Awesome images! I liked the 15mm ones better; the 8mm ones are a bit too wide for me haha but I think it would be a good thing to try is to lay down on the floor in the forest and take a picture with the 8mm. The trees’ branches and the different colors of the leaves would make for a beautiful point of view. Thank you!

I bought a fisheye lens with my old NIKON D800 over 10 years ago for the sole purpose of taking 360 panoramic photography and stitching them together to make quicktime web images and I never thought it could be used for conventional photography due to it’s massive distortion. From what I’ve seen on YouTube in the past two days it’s a pretty good lens for nature scenes where there’s little to no man made straight lines (unless they are centred in the frame at some distance – I’m guessing). Whats interesting is the fisheye is cool as it captures what we see with our peripheral vision and as you say make framing the shot easier… I’ll have to dig out the lens and practice with it… so thanks for this.
