Canon @CES 2022
In this post of mine yesterday I told you about what were the “workhorses” of the presence of the Nikon brand at CES 2022 in Las Vegas. Today, however, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, Canon @CES 2022, I want to focus my attention on the Canon brand, also present in the hi-tech event in the Nevada desert, where, in addition to some software solutions, it presented the new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens.
RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye
Here, the word “new”, speaking of the RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens could even be too reductive. It is indeed a leap into the future thanks to an innovative product that fits into Canon’s more general EOS VR system. A product that, as indicated, was created for the production of contents for virtual reality.
Well, thanks to the new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens it will be possible to create virtual reality images through a single lens, acquiring 3D 180 ° VR stereoscopic images from time to time. We are therefore no longer talking, as you may have guessed, about photography but about absolutely three-dimensional imagination and creativity.
To create VR content, simply insert the lens on any Canon EOS R5 camera (as long as it is equipped with compatible firmware) and it will immediately be possible to create wonderful 8k VR images, simply by switching from normal to stereoscopic shooting mode.
Other features and price
Supported recordings have DCI resolution equivalent to 30 fps and 10-bit encoding. This allows to have an extraordinary detail of the images even in stereoscopy, all on a field of view of 190 ° even in low light conditions.
Finally, for post processing, compatibility with a plugin in Adobe Premiere Pro is provided.
The expected price for the new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens is around 2000 euros.
