The Lens Lab > Lens Lab Camera 1 (LLC1): If I were a Hammerhead

Loosely based on Hammerhead Sharks, LLC1 explores peripheral vision and horizontal linear distortion. Some scientists believe that the Hammerhead Shark’s pecularily positioned eyes combined with its lateral swaying head produces a 360º range of vision and a greater depth of field. Inside the lens attachment are two mirrors, each positioned at 45º. The camera shoots images with a 180º range. When held level, horizon lines between the two images will remain the same. When the camera is not level, horizontal lines diverge.
