Focus as close as 8cm
The 3.1″ (8cm) closest focus distance (object to the sensor) means that you can focus any objects at a finger away. It enables photographers to get really close to the subject and emphasize the details. The exaggerating angle of view will also provide alternatives to make fun of the amusing big-headed animals (including your friends). You may need to forget the rules of composition for one moment and take advantage of the extreme distortion to create an impactful image.

Huge depth of field
Simply stop down the aperture to f/5.6 (or above), you can concentrate on your compositions without worrying about focusing! The huge depth of field can cover almost everything in the scene.

Outstanding sharpness
The image sharpness of the 4mm is incredible! The lens not just sharp at the center, but also produce a clear image at the edge. This would be very useful when de-fishing the image or cropping out the center part for an ultra-wide angle shot.

360 Degree Panorama & VR imaging
Attributed to the ultra wide 210 Degree FOV, you can easily create a full 360 Degree panorama using a maximum of 2-3 images as opposed to shooting 6 images or more with conventional fisheye lenses. This lens is also particular good for VR photography and shooting virtual tour.

Apart from the 360 degrees panorama, the spherical panorama is also possible with this tiny fisheye lens. You can start creating your own tiny planet.

HFR HD crop
Another good application of the 4mm is to use on Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera under HFR HD Crop mode. Due to the outstanding sharpness and ultra-wide 210 Degree angle of view, the image still looks crispy after cropping the black area away. The HD crop successfully eliminates the black circle in the frame and transform the lens into a budget ultra-wide angle lens.

De-Fishing Image
You can also de-fish the images to get some ultra-wide angle shots. The sharpness of the 4mm helps to retain a clear image after the de-fishing process.

Vertical or Horizontal crop
