Today, i was looking for a very wide angle lense for a s16mm camera at the local rental house. They had the Optex 5,5mm and the Century 6mm ( panspheron add-on made it 4,5mm ).

So i tried them out both, and i don't like the vertical distortion you get on both when you pan the camera around,. So i was wondering, is there a very wide angle lense availible in super16 with a fisheye effect ? ( That's gotta be one of the cheaper wide angle lenses one could build, right ? ). Something like a Peleng 8mm 3.5T on a s35mm format camera, but then for s16mm.

Thanks,
Sander Ferdinand

I think century had a 3.5mm which works as a fisheye for 16mm. They seems to pop up on ebay from time to time...

I am not sure I think you are more likely to get a bit of a circular bubble in the middle of the Super-16 frame.

Optika-Elite makes a 4.5mm S16 fisheye.
Not as pricey as a Zeiss, but still pricey.

Slow-motion in LA rents it.
