If you wanna make your multilens pop with fisheye flair then stock up on your door spies!
I always love looking through a door spy and getting visions of a weirdly crystal ball world but I am always unsatisfied with the results of putting the doorspy onto the camera lens. The main problem is you get an image with a tiny fisheye picture circle and then way too much black hole space. Then I had an idea, well if your multilens camera breaks up the frame into multiple frames then maybe the doorspy applied to those lenses could fill up more of their block.
The idea kinda works as you can see in the pix. doing up the Supersampler and the Actionsampler are really easy because your average doorspy fits right into the holes (that’s what she said) that surround the lens. You can try to fit as many doorspies as will fit into these guys, I found the Actionsampler can fit all 4 and the Supersampler can only really fit two. Have fun though with filling in areas you want and leaving other areas with the normal lens, majesty.
Doing this with the pop 9 is trickier though because there is nothing for the doorspies to fit into. I solved this by cutting a cardboard square, measuring out the spaces between the lens I want to cover, cutting a hole in the cardboard, fitting the doorspies into the holes, and then taping the whole cardboard thing onto the pop9. I could really only fit 4 of my doorspies on the 9 so I did some with a black cross of empty in the middle. Other times I rewound and reset the film and then took the cardboard off, taped over the fisheye’d lens in the corner and then exposed the center cross lenses… you can see from the results what it looks like I guess… anyways you can do all manner of fun crap with this tip, so try that junk out son.

Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
