View Full Version : Fisheye lens and HDRI pictures

I am thinking about taking HDRI pictures, but before I have a question for HDRI specialits :
- I did read a few tuts about how to, and I was wondering why can't I use a 180 fisheye lens instead of the mirror ball ( I did not see any tutorial mentioning this possibility ) ?

Thank you

Hi fboulene
The actual way of doing HDRI IS using a fisheye lens the reason people use the ball is its MUCH cheaper that buying a decent lens.

So if you have one or have access to one THAT is the way to go :)

That's what I was thinking, but I needed confirmation.

Thank you
