Diana 20mm Fisheye Lens

I've had my Fisheye Lens for only a few weeks and it's one of my favourite tools already .

If you always wanted to have half of the world on one photo , this might be the perfect toy for you and your Diana . The lens comes with a viewfinder but I don’t use it . Whatever is around you will be on the photo anyway ( somehow .. ) , and who doesnt love surprises ??

This super wide lens makes wonderful 180-degree circular photos . Get real close ( and I mean REAL close !!) to the object and what you get is a beautifully blurred image. In combination with medium format film you get real and full sized round pictures , wonderful !!! You might wanna try overlapping fisheye-photos , I love them , it’s a nice way to do portraits . I haven’t done doubles with the fisheye lens , but this should be lots of fun , too . The Fisheye Lens is a great toy I can recommend to every Diana owner !! :-)

    awesome shots. i love how you get a fully round shot...much better than the cropped image you get with the fisheye2

    Does it work well with the 35mm back?
