Lomography Fisheye - Staff Review

The classic Fisheye camera is the easy, compact way to shoot sharp pictures in a 170-degree field of view.

The Fisheye camera was introduced by the Lomographic Society in 2005. It was a quick, compact way to shoot ‘fisheye’ photos without having to lug extra lenses.

This 35mm camera gives sharp pictures even up close – the Fisheye sucks up your subject’s face into the lens, while keeping the other parts – ears, arms, shoulders – pulled backwards. The premium glass lens yields bright colors and contrast. From foreground to background, your images are guaranteed sharp and clear, with its wide depth of field.

A built-in flash is available for nighttime use, and as a fill-in flash for daytime shots.

    This was my first Lomo camera and I was hooked from day one. If you add the underwater case to it you can get some amazing shots that you would never think were possible.

    Use your fisheye in bright sunilght - you'll get some glare and other unexpected reflected light effects around the edges of the picture, instead of the simply black outline around the circular image. Come close to shooting directly into the sun and your images will make you smile!
    Sunny images with the addition of light reflected of off water are even more fun!

    This is probably a really idiotic question, but, I was wondering how do you upload photos from a film camera onto your computer.. ? Especially for this camera. I'm getting the Lomo Fisheye in a few days, and from what I know (which isn't much.), film cameras don't have memory cards or USB cords. Well, that's pretty much my only question. Hope for an answer.<3

    Oh my gosh. I already knew this, I just haven't used a film camera in ages. When you get the film developed, you get it put onto a disk. DUH!
