Ever wondered how fisheye photos would look like when done with a Konstruktor? I wondered about that too and tried the Fisheye Lens Adapter on my Konstruktor to find out. The results are great and the adapter brings loads of fun when used with this DIY shooter!
Many of you may know the Fisheye Lens Adapter for SLR or compact cameras that’s easily attached to the end of the lens. Mine is from Hama and has the factor 0.42. I get from my 50mm lens a 21mm sized optic with fisheye effect.
The Konstruktor has a screw mount of 37mm. When you have the right screw adapter, you can fix the fisheye lens on the end of it. I just put the adapter on the end of the lens to test it. It wasn’t easy to focus but I thought it’s okay for testing. Now that I know that it looks good, I’ll probably buy an adapter ring.
For comparison, I took this picture with the normal focal length first and again with fisheye adapter. Remember to mind where you place your fingers before you take pictures!
I took a double exposure photo with the same subject at first with the normal focal length and the second with the adapter.
Here are my results with the fisheye lens adapter:
Experiment with it! It’s a fun way to mix things up with the Konstruktor camera. I hope Lomography makes a great wide-angle lens or fisheye optic for the Konstruktor soon. I would sure love it if they did!
