The Reason Why I Bought the Lomography Fisheye 2 Camera

6

While I'm searching for a job so I can afford to have my broken Fisheye 2 repaired, which I used last time on a heavy rainy day and made it wet, I wanna review the last five years of what this delectable fishy camera gave to me.

My memories are back to the year of 2008 when I saw a lot of amazing photos taken by the Fisheye camera on @ngoki's macbook. It made me wanna try it too. So after asking how to get it, the camera finally came to my home after I bought from the Lomography Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The first reason I love this camera because it has a space edge look like the window of the ship, which the Fisheye 1 or any other fisheye lens or camera does not have.

The other reason is I love circles. It gives us a different perspective from square frame.

And the added value of this camera is its internal flash which helps you take a photo at any weather situation.

The circle lens also challenges our creativity to create any possibility of unusual photo results.

Unfortunately, unlike his kissable camera brother “Frogeye”, this Prince Charming Fisheye needs a little help from the Fisheye Submarine which I haven’t had due to the classic problem a.k.a. finances.

And just like most of Lomography cameras, I cry for a tele-lens or some zoom option for the Fisheye camera to shoot interesting far/dangereous objects.

No matter, this camera is always in my bag when I go outside for snip and snaps, before it was unfortunately broken by rain water.

It’s just a perfect for close ups and private shots.

I hope Lomography will create the added tele-lens for this camera so I can shoot the moon which always looks pretty above my home, but there is nothing I can do because it will look like a dot if I shoot the moon with my Fisheye camera.
