Charge up your portraits with the wide wide world of the Fisheye!
Robert Capa once said “If its not good enough, you’re not close enough.” So get close as you possibly can and snap away with the Lomography Fisheye cameras! With an insanely close minimum focusing distance and nearly 180 degrees field of view, a few inches are all it takes to make the funniest and downright cool portraits possible! It also has an opening of f/8 so need to worry about depth of field issues – just go in close and click away! This is perfect if you’re out in the sun but if you’re indoors or out clubbing, the Ringflash should be able to help you out. If you’re going underwater of just want to take photos while in the shower, the Fisheye Submarine is what to need.
The possibilities are endless with the Fisheye! For proof, check out the shots at our Photos section and see the wide, wide world of the Fisheye! Want to experience the 180 degree view? Head on over to our shop

If it's your first time to use the Fisheye Submarine Case (with your Fisheye One/Fisheye No.2 cameras) or the Krab Underwater Housing (with your LC-A+ or LC-Wide cameras), you might still feel a liiiiittle bit anxious about taking your favorite cameras underwater. To help ease your worries I gathered some of the most helpful tips, straight from summer-lovin' Lomographers who braved the waves with their cameras!
There's nothing more satisfying than taking fantastic photos with a camera that you built yourself. If you've always wanted to impress your friends with your mad DIY skills, pick up a Konstruktor Camera Kit and show them what you've got! It's also a cool way to get them into Lomography, because as you build the camera you'll discover how analogue photography works. Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!
