About Me


Enthusiast Photographer Non-active Mountainer Beginner Freediver Traveller

Trying to capture the beauty all around  I started climbing a few years ago to try to bring some life into my work-home existence. And now that I’m a little tired of climbing and have achieved some altitude, I’m trying to go deeper and deeper, one breath at a time. In more ways than one, a traveller exploring this so-called life and the wonderful country I live in.

    Hi dear elmer.
    i have a question about Samyang 8 mm fisheye lens.
    i want to buy a Nikon D3200 and i am confused about that if it’s compatible with this lens or not.
    As you know, this camera has not a built-in focus motor. is this a matter of imprtance?
    and if you was me, do you prefer Nikon D3200 or Canon 600D for capturing with a fisheye lens?

    thanks a lot.

    • Hi Behrouz, Samyang doesn’t autofocus (no matter what camera you use). It is a fully manual focus lens (but focusing is not a big problem, just set to f8 then 2 feet or two meters and almost everything will be in focus). Nikon versions have an added functionality in that you can control aperture on the camera (as opposed on the lens).

      The Samyang 8mm fisheye is better on Nikon D3200 as the slightly larger sensor creates a truly 180 degree field of view diagonal. On a Canon with it’s 1.6 crop, diagonal field of view is somehow less (165 degrees or so).
