Unleash your creativity with the Rollei Glass Lens Ball for DSLM (mirrorless), DSLR and smartphone photography. It allows you to photograph inverted mirror images that are sharp and crystal clear in a 180-degree sphere view. This 90mm Solid Glass Lens Ball is ideal when photographing landscapes, street photography, architecture photography and many more on a focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. of anything between 24 and 35mm, maximum exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. time of 1/250 – 2/125 and iris of f/2.8 to achieve a typical low depth of field.

How to use your photography lens ball?

It works best to use a macroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. lens or a wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties..
  • Always clean the ball of fingerprints before shooting – a microfibre cloth is included in the scope of delivery

  • In the case of freehand shooting, work with a maximum exposure time of 1/250 - 2/125.
  • The ideal focal length is between 24 and 35mm.
  • Longer exposure times are also possible with stands.
  • For the typical low depth of field of the glass ball photography, work with a 2.8 shutter.
  • Ideally for extensive areas with few high points (e.g.forest clearings, marketplaces, water with and without ships).
  • For photography with the use of a stand, keep a safe distance so that neither the stand nor the photographer is reflected in the glass ball.
  • Have fun and be creative!
