Since its big launch last week, we’ve been reading a lot of good words about Lomography’s very first 110 format camera, the Fisheye Baby 110! Check out what gadget blogs and tech sites like T3, Gizmodo, CNET, and Jaunted have to say about our little guy!
The Fisheye Baby 110 shoots fisheye-effect photos, best for getting all up in someone’s face. Imagine how it looks to peer through a door peephole; it’s kinda like that. Some iPhone photo apps attempt to mimic the effect, but this is the real deal (and it’ll give you real, tangible prints after developing). Maybe we’re just romantics about all this travel photography stuff, but we also like to think of Lomo cameras as conversation starters to make that first connection so hard to make with photo subjects. Try asking a stranger to pose for your DSLR and there’s a weird “What for?” feeling. Show them a cute plastic camera however, and the suspicion is replaced with curiosity.
We were expecting small, but when we first cast eyes on the Fisheye Baby 110, we were still startled by it’s quaintness. This is a camera that could quite feasibly fit in your pocket without any distress. It reminded us of something you might find in a Christmas cracker. With its full fisheye plastic lens, your snaps will have a bubble retro look that certainly makes them standout from your usual photographs.
The Lomography Fisheye Baby 110 looks like a cheap, fun snapper. It’s a good option if you want an affordable analogue cam to take to a festival or on a night out.
