    Hi,

    I am new to BM world, so bare with me please.

    Thinking about buying Micro (or Micro 4k) for car show which I producing. Currently, I am using GoPros for people talking in a car, because I was not able to find different solution - mainly because of wide angle lens. Even GoPro must be set to "SuperView" mode. I have one GoPro in the middle of the windshield, the shot contain both driver and passenger (and it is mandatory for what I do).

    The question is, is there any lens for Micro or Micro 4k which would be able to have same super ultra wide angle?

    Thank you

    The Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is the widest rectilinear lens available for micro four thirds.

    No there isn't. I'm guessing your GoPro lens has an AOV of about 120 degrees. That would be about a 3.6-3.8mm lens on a Micro. The widest combination I could come up with would be the .58x Speedbooster with the Sigma 8-16mm which would give you a 4.6mm lens with an AOV of about 107 degrees.

    You might think about mounting the cam on the hood and use a polarizer to kill reflections, or maybe a mirror?

    Good Luck

    Another option might be the Kowa LM6HC for 1" c-mount

    still some image distortion, though
