 Little tid bit: The VAST majority of fish eye lenses are fixed focal point.
  • + 4
 you cant change the focal point of a lens. its all about changing image distance. just try zooming in
  • + 2
 What are you talking about? Do you even know what focal point is? Ever heard of a zoom lens?
  • + 7
 A-Physics, so yeah I do. A lens (not a camera lens, a lens) has a fixed focal point. A camera lens uses multiple lenses and moves them apart and closer together to zoom in/out.

 A-Level Physics*

 Dude. Zoom and focal point are the same thing. The zoom adjusts the focal point. Fisheye lenses generally have no zoom therefor they are fixed focal point. I could give a shit less what physics class you're in buddy.

 nice man ive been meaning to do that at the abandoned water park along the highway like 10 minutes from my house ive never heard of biking on it but local skaters used to go bomb down it on their skateboards
  • + 2
 They were going SO slowly, I can understand it on the closed over ones where you had to duck, but the open top ones should be blasted!
  • + 1
 if you couldn't tell he was already almost hitting the sides when he leaned in for the turn. any faster and you'd scrape face on the inside edge of the turn. so you go try that and post pics of your face afterwards k?
  • + 1
 Between 40-60 seconds in, his head is well clear of the open section of the tube, going faster would put the bike higher on the wall, and he'd STILL be sticking his head clear of the tube?
  • + 1
 going higher on teh tube would also lean him over further. think about it. lose lose situation.
  • + 1
 at 1:19 you can see it better. the part you're talkin about is an open section of tube. and besides. as soon as you hit a certian point the walls go completely vertical. they aren't as round as you think.

 Loving the creativity... Would be hilarious if you did it with the water on - especially when you drop into the pool at the end. Mad props for doing it even in the dry though!
