Following the original Fisheye One camera that was launched in 2005, the Lomography Society International presented an improved model a year later: the Lomography Fisheye No.2.
A follow-up model to the original Fisheye camera, the Lomography Fisheye No. 2 includes a Bulb setting, a standard hotshoe and a multiple exposure switch on top of the original 170-degree wide-angle lens and built-in electronic flash.
Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.

Humans always seek ways to improve an innovation. In the early days of photography, the project was to introduce color to Mr. Daguerre’s fascinating prints.
