Fishy Fisheye No. 2

Bearing a light-weight and cute look, Lomographers all over the world must have this kind of camera for quick-snaps of their world in circles!

The Lomography Fisheye No. 2 is indeed one awesome invention from the Lomographic Society International. What they did was snap in a fisheye lens over a 35mm film camera, add-on a “Lock” mode to avoid clicking the camera once inside your bag, and placing a “B” or bulb mode for delightful, night-time exposures.

What’s really inside this cute and non-complex camera? Well, the Fisheye No. 2 is a great camera to carry around. You can steadily shoot night shots by choosing B or bulb mode, and watch yourself in long exposures and colorful light warps. The hotshoe is also another great add on to this quirky camera. Imagine, two flashes at the same time? The internal flash of the Fisheye No. 2 can be found over the corner of the camera. Pairing up a Lomography Colorsplash Flash or Lomography Ringflash and turning the power of the internal flash can radically give you a superb double, colorful flash! What’s also a fun way to use this camera is the MX or multiple exposure. What to do? Snap a picture, click the MX button, snap a picture again. You’ll get instant double exposure.

With all this endless tricks, one can possibly have endless ideas together with this quirky camera. You can never go wrong, this camera sports an aperture of f/8 and a shutter speed of 1/125 when in normal mode. All your silly, up-close portraits will be sharp including the world around you.

Just don’t forget to remove the lens cap before taking a shoot, and chug in some fresh AA batteries inside for the internal flash and you are ready to go!
