Re-use Your Fisheye Viewfinder

Find out how you can get a Fisheye effect with any camera of your choice!

If you love your Fisheye 2 camera too much to massacre it like larslau did awhile back but still love that Fisheye effect this may be the thing for you.

You need:

  • 1 Fisheye 2 viewfinder
  • 1 Lomolito Camera
  • Tape
  • Scissors

Basically you just take a Lomolito Camera and black tape your Fisheye 2 view finder over the lens. You could try with other cameras but the Lomolito has the smallest lens I know so it works the best.

The viewfinder will give you a weird distant Fisheye effect and what is also quite fun is that you get the James Bond style gun barrel framing effect. When you use flashes they fill in that circular area with whatever color flash you use which can be fun as well… This tip is also good for making weird double exposures with one regular frame and one Fisheye viewfinder on top!
