Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye Adobe Lens Profile

Ok, last one …

Here are some profiles for the Peleng MC 8mm F3.5 Fisheye, profiled on a Sony Alpha 900 (DSLR-A900) body. For some reason, the lens, when mounted to my A900, is somewhat decentered, that is the image circle it creates is offset a little bit to the right, and also cropped ever so slightly on the long edges.

I shot the following series: 5 Apertures [4.0, 5.6, 8.0, 11.0, 16.0] x 1 focus distance [0.40m], resulting in a total of 45 pictures used in the calibration process. Again, the ZIP file contains a two different files — one that contains the lens profile and one that contains the DNG color profile to give you more accurate colours. Since this purely manual lens does not exchange any information with the camera, in order to make these profiles work for you, I recommand that you manually set the aperture for this lens. I’ll might write a post on how to do this further down the line.

As you may know, creating such profiles takes a considerable amount of time and large prints of the calibration charts as well as a colour checker. If you find these profiles useful, please consider a small donation (conveniently via PayPal):

Thank you!

  1. Well theoretically no, but practically – give it a try and see how well it works! If you’re happy with the results, then you’re happy with the results :-)

  2. Hi,

    Are these profiles also usable for photo’s shot on a Canon 5Dc?

    I mean, it’s your profile or nothing.
