The Fisheye 2 camera is ready for playing and improvising, leaving room for creativity with shapes, distortions, and double exposures. It is a camera I highly recommend to start in the LomoWorld!
I was introduced to Lomography about three months ago, thanks to four friends who have the Diana Mini they bought on a trip to New York.
By then, I was curious about the analogue world: reels, not knowing how the photos come out, plastic cameras.. I was looking for something different, too since I though that the photos I took with my digital SLR were quite normal. So I chose the Fisheye 2. If you have creativity, this camera can be very well exploited.
I bought rolls of 400 ISO films and from the first reel, I was surprised to see how sharp the pictures came out. That round edge on the photo, I love it! My first reel was to try and take simple pictures, looking above the horizon and landscapes.
The other two reels I have dedicated to double exposures, animals, and friends. Some were overexposed and the double exposures didn’t go so well. Next time I’ll try to lower the ISO to 200.
Although I already have my eye on the Diana Mini, I think I still have a long relationship with this camera. It seems to be a highly recommended camera, I carry it along with my house keys.
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.
