orthographic lenses are a type of fisheye lenses

orthographic lenses are also called” hemispherical“or “orthographisch
orthographic lenses use an image mapping function of type

An orthographic / hemispherical fisheye, uses a parallel projection of a hemisphere onto a plane. The resulting image will obviously be circular. The widest view angle is 180 degrees. At +/-90 degrees extreme distortion will occur. Due to this heavy distortion it’s less often used than f-Theta / angular fisheye.
