Do you guys have any ideas of the first use of fish eye in movies? i just read about the 24mm Tolland and cooke created for Citizen Kane... very interesting! its true that once the image is croped you dont feel so much the distortion but their is an interesting thing about the perception the size of objects and bodies in the image and the effect of that relation it has on the narration in the movie.
Hi im doing a memoir for my last year in film school on the use of wide angle/ultra wide angle/fish eye lens and i would like to know when these kind of lens first came out 28mm and down... would like to have a history part of these type of lenses does anybody know? thanks a bunch
