Having worn that first one out with heavy use, I decided to upgrade to the Lomo Fisheye 2. Tee features, locking shutter button, manual exposure with rear curtain flash, hotshoe!! all the things I covetted. Unfortunately, this model is just not what it could be, especially with the increased cost and SIZE versus slim changes in your average functionality.
Here's my specific, whining complaints. Most are what I consider design flaws or thoughtlessness that hamper truly effective use of the camera. (I assume others may not be impeded or annoyed by one or all of these issues, but if they haven't been redesigned, these are definite considerations to before purchase.
1. Film wind crank will not stay folded flush to camera. It is extremely flimsy, especially when taking into account the camera's poor winding action. The crank is going to either snap off in my bag or while winding a roll of film in the near future as it continues to loosen daily.
2. Lens cap will not stay on the lens. It just falls off, dragged down by the weight of it's cord or pushed off by the slightest contact. There are little tabs on the cap rim that are meant to hook over the BIG, gratuitous, metal lip of the lens body, but the cap itself is too soft and elastic to maintain a grip. My cap is now gone, having been torn off the lanyard somewhere then (my bad) misplaced during a night shoot where I was using the Fisheye to pick up some distinctive wide angles in addition to stard shots on a regular digital SLR.

I live in Costa Rica where it's always sunny and bright, so I use ASA 100 with this camera and the results are amazing, with a little editing you'll get really good looking, nice quality images. I'll recomend that you develop the roll but instead of printing it right away, ask them to scan the negatives, that way you'll see the shots, do some editing and then print the ones you like, you'll save a lot of money and the results will be better.
It comes with a rubber lens cap, a little book with fisheye shots and a poster. I'm pleased with it and I highly recomend it!
the camera itself is good quality, seems sturdy. the image quality will vary with your film, but i have been shooting kodax reala 100 with great results. the color is amazing. the fisheye effect is fun and a good way to get yourself out of the "pro" rut that some photographers get in...trying to perfect every picture. just point and shoot with this one. the only downside is the fixed aperature and shutter speed. you need to be aware of what speed your film is and shoot in conditions to match. i shoot 100 speed, so i can rreally only shoot in bright bright sunlight with this cmaera unless i want to shoot in the bulb setting and get a blurry pic (can be fun also and is a great addition over the fisheye no. 1). the built in flash is virutally worthless--you always get the "flash specter" on the right side of the photo because the projecting lens gets in the way--get the colorsplash flash to add on. the hotshoe also works with any flash, so i've even tried out my canon 580ex on it! the colorsplash's size is perfect for this camera. they go together well.
in closing, this is just a fun, inexpensive camera that i recommend if you're feeling uninspired lately. don't expect it to be your only camera though. also, if you don't have an LC-A Kompakt yet, get one of those first because i just did and I have virtually retired the fisheye bc the LC-A is so great and fun! yay lomo!
1. High production quality. Well made. Looks good. Feels good.
2. Very interesting camera. Everyone who sees the camera has questions and everyone who sees the pictures has questions.
3. Several unique or difficult to find features. Fish eye lens - usually a very expensive option on other cameras. "Rear curtain" sync flash - usually only found on very expensive cameras. "B" setting - not common on view finder cameras. Double exposure - extremely rare on manual advance cameras.
Because of the location of the built-in flash and the size of the lens, extremely close up flash pictures will contain an annoying shadow caused by the lens housing. You can avoid this by using a flash mounted in the hot shoe or a lens mounted ring flash. This is a satisfactory solution because I never use the hot shoe mounted viewer and I prefer to use my ColorSplash flash with this camera anyway.
The top and bottom of the circular image are cut off. Maybe it would be nicer if the entire image fit within the rectangular frame of the film, but then the picture would be smaller, so this is probably OK. I usually crop the picture to be square anyway, or possibly crop a rectangular image out of the middle of the circular image, so this isn't really a problem.
I love this camera. The camera itself is interesting and the pictures it takes are interesting. It has added lots of variety to my picture taking.
