What to do with a fisheye lens?
The big appeal to these fisheye lenses is most of them can capture a 130-degree field of view. It will give you a fisheye look, however, you can use software like Fisheye-Hemi to remove the fisheye effect for just an ultra-wide look or a rectilinear look. Essentially it does what a GoPro does. Superview – to wide – to linear.
