- Flashlight will get disabled when using fisheye lens. Selecting a better light is vital to get a better image. 10 am to 2 pm is fine for outdoor shooting since it is sunshiny. Turn the light on when shooting indoors.
- DO NOT get overexposure; otherwise, the fisheye images will have a distinct blue or dark seam.
- To get a deeper "Depth of Field", we suggest a larger F value i.e. smaller aperture and a longer exposure time. However, exposure time should be less than 1/4 to avoid stuck Pixel.
- Use the Aperture Exposure Lock setting on a digital camera to capture equal lighting between hemisphere pictures. If there is a primary light source, place it on the seam. This will balance the light between the hemispheres and keep overexposure to a minimum. Close blinds or curtains and turn all room lights on to even out the lighting on sunny days.
- Indoor lighting: We often encounter a serious color differences in two interior shots. Here is the way to avoid this. Enable your Automatic Exposure LOCK AE-L and Automatic Focus Lock AF-L.
- Turn you back to the primary light (Sun or bright window), and turn 90 degrees to your left or right and take your first image. Take each image through to the end of the image sequence. Turn Off or disable AE-L and AF-L.
