The Bower 8mm T/3.8 Fisheye HD Cine Lens for Canon DSLR Mount can shoot both photo and video but has features that make it particularly attractive for shooting video with DSLR cameras. It is an ultra wide-angle lens with a 180deg. panoramic fisheye perspective. Its silent and smooth aperture transitions and manual focus make it ideal for shooting video and its aperture and focus rings are toothed to provide better grip for follow-focus rigging. Compatible with both full-frame sensors and APS-C sensors, it offers sharp imaging with its 10-element, 1 aspherical optic lens design. A removable petal-type lens hood is included with the lens for stray light deflection and protection of the convex shaped lens.
