A brand new perspective

The Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens is the world’s first¹ lens for digital interchangeable lens cameras enabling 180° VR shooting with one camera to a single sensor. When the lens is combined with a firmware upgrade on the EOS R5², it will offer the industry's first ever 8K 30p³ VR compatibility on a digital interchangeable lens camera using a full frame sensor.

  • Capture content for 3D VR on EOS R5²

    The Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens allows the shooter to capture digital images and video for use in virtual reality, including augmented and mixed reality media. With the lens capturing a wide angle of view from 2 separate angles, a 3D image can be created.

  • Easy set up

    The Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens is easy to set up with your EOS R5. Simply apply a filter if needed to the rear of the lens, attach it to your EOS R5, set your focus and you're ready to go. This removes the need for multiple camera set ups and quick and easy installation in most environments.

Up to 8K³ video compatibility

The Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens will create a high-quality image, essential for an immersive VR video experience. Using the compatible EOS R5 along with the lens, you are able to shoot movies at up to 8K³ in Canon Log, which will work in tandem with any Canon Cinema EOS cameras.

  • Streamlined VR workflow

    Along with the Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye lens, Canon’s EOS VR System also includes a newly developed Canon VR Utility application and EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe® Premiere® Pro to make the image conversion process⁴, from a dual circular fisheye image to a more recognisable side-by-side equirectangular 180° VR format, effortless.

  • Large f/2.8 for bright footage

    The Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens supports shooting in dark locations with its large f/2.8 aperture, along with the optical performance of an L series lens. In conjunction with the EOS R5's high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC X processor, the two work in conjuction with eachother to create high quality, low noise footage.

2 The EOS R5 (currently the only compatible camera) will need a firmware update to be compatible.

3 The captured resolution per lens will be slightly less than 4K due to the two image circles being placed side by side on the sensor. When combined this produces an 8K quality file.

4 Canon’s EOS VR Utility or EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe® Premiere® Pro are required to perform the equirectangular conversion of recorded 180° VR images from a compatible camera (EOS R5). A trial use of Canon’s app with still images and videos under 2 minutes is free of charge. When exporting (EOS VR Utility) / importing (EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe® Premiere® Pro) videos 2 minutes of longer, a paid subscription is required.
