Samyang / Rokinon 8mm + iPhone

Samyang / Rokinon 8mm + iPhone

Here are 6 picturtes and 1 video that I took using the Samyang(Rokinon) 8mm fisheye on a Sony Nex 5N.

A quick overview of the 8mm lens is that it is a fisheye. The one on my camera is 8mm/2.8f(e-mount), so theres no need for an adapter. The lens however is manual, which makes the color peaking and touchscreen of the Nex 5N really useful.


  • 8mm + Fisheye
  • High quality
  • Built on Lenshood
  • Easy to read(Aperture and focusing print)


  • Weight(sort of)
  • No Protection of glass(Insurance is Highly Recommended)
  • No Lens filters

Images taken on the go, and uploaded without a computer or tablet. Phone, only!
If the images has (instagram) beside it, then the photo was taken on the Nex 5N, then sent to my iPhone with the Eye-fi Card. Instagram took the {.jpg}photo from the photo library and exported a final image. Which is what you see, instead of a flat color image created from the profiles I’m using on my camera.

Items used:

  • Sony Nex 5N
  • 8mm Fisheye
  • Eye-Fi Pro X2(1rst gen)
  • Instagram (iPhone)
