FISH EYE manipulation in post

What is the most common way of taking gorgeous (but fish-eye-warped) 1080i HD footage. I use a Canon 72mm wide angle converter lens, which of course introduces that standard lens warp. Is there something that un-warps everything, or am I stuck with the wide-angle distortion?

Thanks a lot! I'm kinda new to the wide-angle thing.

Re: FISH EYE manipulation in post

there are several solutions (plugin, feature or standalone) to do this.
Adobe Photoshop CS6 has feature (adaptive wide angle), there is an utility for gopro (but should work with any lens) , some feature in DXO etc...

Is it possible?

Anyone know the answer? I want to be able to adjust the wide-angle warp effect so that the lines are straight, but I still get all the extra peripheral area captured by my fisheye lens.

Is this possible? I use Final Cut X and After Effects.

THANKS!

Hi Daniel, we used the same Canon 72mm WA convertors and there is some 'barrel distortion' but after checking around the web
finding the amount of trouble to correct it, versus the amount of BD we had to correct, now we don't worry about it.

You start to notice BD on other productions and imo it's generally accepted and can be used for effect. But we don't put 2 or 3 of those shots back to back.
This Canon is not as *bad* as some prosumer WA video lenses, however try Googling 'wide angle distortion' and 'barrel distortion'
