Hi all.

I have ZERO experience with fisheyes. I'm thinking of renting one when I go to New York for the Yankee/Padre games this summer to get a different perspective than my 10-22 and 17-40.

I'm looking for examples of Fisheye pictures from the nosebleed sections of baseball stadiums (football is okay, but shots will be in a non-rectangular staduim)

I have only 1.6 crop cameras.. So that's what I'm really looking for. Please give me a pic and what lens it was taken with.

THANKS!!

There's a Canon 15mm fisheye image archive here...I remember seeing a few shots of Yankee Stadium from above and behind the home plate area. This lens wouldn't work well for you on a crop camera, but the pics will give you an idea of what to expect with the right lens/camera combo. For your crop camera, two that come to mind are the Peleng 8mm or the Tokina 10-17 fisheye zoom. The Peleng won't give you a full image, whereas the Tokina will. I used the Peleng on my 30D, and while the IQ was pretty good with a little PP, the image really needed to be square cropped due to the size of the image circle. The Peleng runs about $270 or so, and the Tokina will cost somewhere between $450 and $500 (more expensive, but could be the better option, depending on what you're looking for). Currently, I'm using the Canon 15mm FE with the 5D. Sigma also has a few new fisheyes out, but can't tell you much about them.

Yeah, me too... Think it was MDJAK, maybe?

Check the 15mm archive thread for it...

Here's the picture you're looking for:
https://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=3896334&po​stcount=55

I have the Canon 15mm Fish, and its not very exciting on a 1.6 crop body. Its wide, but not nearly as "fishy" as it is on a FF camera. I would look into some of the fisheye's specifically built for crop bodies as mentioned above.

Well; it's not what I wanted to hear, but I appreciate the links/examples BEFORE I rented one :)

I'll start asking around to see if a friend of a friend of a friend has a peleng I can borrow for 2-3 days for NYC.

I have the 10-22, but since I went there the first time (shooting film as a 9 year old) I've always wanted a fisheye of the staduim. Now I have 1 season left to try to get it....

Anyone around NYC want to help a brother out :) ?
Again, thanks.

Why do you only have one season left?

This is the last year of the 'old' yankee stadium; the 'new' staduim will host the Yankees beginning in 2009. It will be levelled and turned into an open 'park' except for the playing field and home plate which will remain.

You could rent this lens, it will give you a fisheye effect on a crop body:

WOW. I had no clue. I hate to hear that. It doesn't surprise me that they'll tear it down though. That seems to be the new thing to do these days.

What will they be doing with the monuments that are out behind centerfield? Its funny that this is considered the 'old' Yankeee Stadium. When I was young, my father would take us to games and afterwards the fans were allowed to walk out to centerfield and check out the monuments and plaques (before they brought in the outfield fences). Luckily for me, I got to see some of the legends such as Mickey Mantle. To me, that was the 'old' Yankee Stadium. As always,. everything changes. Good luck with the lens search. :)
