Comparing the 0.67x wide angle lens and the Fisheye lens on a Raspberry Pi CCTV

Raspberry Pi Zero W with magnetic adapter ring 0.67x wide angle lens and fisheye lens on wooden floor

Recently, I found a pack of Camera Lens Kit for mobile phones. Inside that pack, there is one 0.67x wide angle lens and one Fisheye lens.

Given that, I had created the following posts to show how you can put them onto your Raspberry Pi Zero W CCTV:

In case you want to see the effect of those lens before getting a pack to turn your Raspberry Pi Zero W CCTV or Raspberry Pi 3 CCTV into wide angle security cameras, read this post to compare the effects of 0.67x wide angle lens and Fisheye on a Raspberry Pi CCTV.

From the different screenshots, we can observe that fitting a 0.67x wide angle lens can already make our Raspberry Pi CCTV see a wider view of the surveillance area. In addition, the Fisheye lens is not called an ultra-wide lens for nothing. Comparing with the 0.67x wide angle lens, it gave a wider view of the surveillance area. However, the camera footage appeared more spherical with evident curved outer corners.
