The title alone suggests this tutorial is not for the faint-hearted! If you have a Fisheye One and want to permanently alter it to do double exposures, well, you might find this tipster by blormore worth a try! Our lomographer cautions, though, that pushing through with this will void any and all warranties, so make sure you’re really decided before doing it!
