Here it is on 36x24mm a7ii

1 bigger fountain

Swirl is still subtle.

A 4x5 crop of the full frame image circle has a vignette but is not completely dark; a 1x1 crop still has a little vignette, which makes sense because the aps-c frame has vignette also.

2 warpy selfie


3 dutch angle street smoker

AgfaUC preset to bring out the reds, didn't need to add the vignette LOL

Leo came up with this one and I lifted on his searching efforts. The barrel looks like a shipwreck but the glass is pristine. It was cheap but Brexit put an addition burden on the wallet. Covers the APSC sensor nicely with a bit of a vignette.

Training for next year. When I discovered there are very short focal length C-mount fisheyes I got interested and started searching for an affordable one. Didn't manage but found a 4mm circular fish for APSC. Day prime starts earlier next year. 210 degrees angle of view, where to hide your body parts. Basically I'm a fool to think this could be mounted on an FE camera in APSC mode. Now the bulging battery compartment/hand-hold is in the image. Hmm, I promised myself never to buy an APSC camera again, but I think I have to get me a simple NEX camera.

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM4
Lens: As above
Aperture; f/8
Exposure Time: 0.008 sec (1/125)

I think showing your hands, tummy and legs gives the photo extra charm Paul

I still have an unused NEX5 that you can borrow, Fred also borrowed it for some time but after he got a "real" E-mount camera he gave it back. If you want I can take it with me to Dordrecht the 24th (if you come and when it's not raining again)

1.8mm prime available in C-mount but too rich for me. And a tiny light circle, not appealing even on APSC.

Thanks Pieter. Now that I have a number of C-mount lenses it was time I got an E-mount camera, tired of looking for APSC mode in the menu and forgetting to put it back, so I got a 6100 with demo model discount.

I have tried the 4mm fish on A6100 and it is possible to take a picture without camera in the frame. No fingers in the frame is trickier as no conventional method of camera holding will work. So, I have used a lens plate and a nodal point camera rotation rig as a handhold. Shutter has to be on delay as finger on the trigger will be revealed. The things we have to do to have a little fun.

I thought I bought a demo body only, but they threw in the magnificent E 3.5-5.6/PZ 16-50 OSS lens for free (or I didn't read the description, the picture was body only). Super compact carry-all-times combo for casual shooting (that I never do). At least my vast collection of A7 and A7Rii batteries now have a second life.
