The Sphere Optics Company created a new lens that is able to turn DSLR cameras into 360-degree cameras horizontally, and 180-degree cameras vertically.
The lens is the first of its kind, and is described as having a "novel, toroidal design" that sets it apart from its competitors. According to the Sphere Optics Company, "no other lenses with an equivalent capability are known to exist." The lens allows photographers to create immersive content and can provide a "full, omnidirectional view that doesn't require stitching together multiple views." The capability makes the lens ideal for people who take photos of both natural and man-made landscapes.
The Sphere Pro lens is currently available in limited quantities on the brand's website.
