Virtual Reality (VR) is a powerful tool. It allows users to fully immerse themselves in lifelike virtual environments. Immersive imagery is viewed through VR headsets, allowing users to explore virtual worlds as if they were physically present.

Fisheye lenses create continuity in panoramic images, enhancing the illusion of presence and immersion. This immersive and realistic VR experience is a result of the use of fisheye lenses. They create a seamless 360-degree panorama by stitching together multiple images with smooth transitions between different viewing angles.

technical applications for fisheye lenses

Fisheye lenses are widely used in technical applications due to their ability to capture wide fields of view while maintaining image clarity over large areas. Fisheye lenses are an essential tool for environmental monitoring and surveillance, providing comprehensive coverage and analysis of large outdoor areas such as forests, parks or urban environments. With their wide-angle view, they enable accurate observation of environmental changes and facilitate effective decision making.​​​​​​​

Drones with fisheye lenses
In drone imaging, fisheye lenses capture landscapes. Drones can capture expansive landscapes because of their wide field of view. By using fisheye lenses, industrial drones can collect detailed data for a variety of purposes, including land mapping, infrastructure inspection, and environmental monitoring. Fisheye lenses allow drones to capture panoramic views due to their wide angle perspective.
