Camera expert Canon has now created the world’s first digital interchangeable lens with the ability to capture stereoscopic 3D 180-degree virtual reality imagery using a single image sensor.

Designed to be used in tandem with the company’s 45-megapixel full-frame EOS R5 camera, the new dual fisheye lens offers a short focusing distance of just 7.87 inches and an aperture range from f/2.8 all the way to f/16. Its wide-angle coverage works with the R5’s updated firmware to provide total 180-degree 3D image capture that can go up to 8K DCI 30p or 4K DCI 60p, perfect for VR devices such as the Oculus Quest 2. As usual, the lens also comes fluorine-coated with dust and weather resistance in mind, and also features a built-in gelatin filter holder for when you need an ND gel filter.

For the photographers and videographers out there, the Canon RF5.2mm F.28 L Dual Fisheye Lens is now available for $2,000 USD and you can learn more over on the company’s website.

Elsewhere in tech, preorders for the Apple Watch Series 7 begin this Friday.
