Product Description

From the Manufacturer

From the Manufacturer Good-humored, ironic, rock 'n' roll, and very, very wide, the Lomography Fisheye 35mm Camera--the world's only 35mm camera with a built-in fisheye lens--is waiting for you.

Hold on tight. Imagine everything above, below, and around you streaming through your eyes and compacting into a nice little ball. Think about your best friend's nose being vacuum-sucked into your lens, all the while their eyes and forehead are s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d back. Visualize yourself bowled over by the devastating colors that only fine glass can deliver. The world's first honest-to-god 35mm fisheye camera is here and ready to swim into your life. Open your heart, stretch out your hands, and grease up your fins.

Lomography Fisheye 35mm Camera
A sampling of day- and flash-lit Lomography Fisheye 35mm Camera images.
The Lomography Fisheye sees a sweeping 170-degree view--compacting everything around you into a circular image. Get right up to your subject's nose for slamming distortion effects. Huge depth of field renders both the foreground and background in complete focus. Its premium glass lens offers bright colors and knockout contrast. Rocks a built-in electronic flash for use day or night. Uses normal 35mm film that can be processed anywhere.

Features:

170-degree field of view
The heart, soul, and blood of the Fisheye's brilliance: an enormous field of view that takes in literally half of the world around you and compacts it into a nice and tight circular image. Barrel distortions twist and bend your subjects around the edges, stretch them towards and away from your lens, and converge their lines towards the center. See for yourself--the effect is simply stunning.

Extreme close-up potential
Not an exercise for the timid--the Fisheye lavishly rewards those who bravely advance within a whisper of their subject. Get right up to their face, and watch their nose get sucked into your lens while their ears and forehead s-l-i-d-e-s backwards. Sharp, beautiful pictures are possible from even the closest quarters. Party on.

Huge depth of field
Super-wide-angle images like the ones spat out by the Fisheye come with a wonderful bonus: focused sharpness from the front to the rear of your image. Each fisheye image shows massive depth of field, so your subject and background will be nice and crispy clear.

Premium glass optics
Sitting inside that massive snout are several of the loveliest optical-glass lens elements that you have ever seen. They work together in perfect harmony to give you bright colors, punchy contrast, super-blue skies, ultra-red lips, and yellow bananas like you have never seen before.

Built-in electronic flash
Whenever you need him, this bright little hombre is ready to light up and fire a solid burst of white. Your Fisheye pleasure is no longer limited to daylight hours.

Sleek goldfish embossing
Swimming off the right side of your camera is a beautifully detailed "koi" goldfish. One part children's illustration and one part yakuza tattoo--it's a real looker on the Fisheye.

Forget the viewfinder
Because it doesn't work anyway. With the Fisheye's massive field of view, it sees much more than any simple viewfinder or even your own eyes can see. The Fisheye truly invites you to "shoot from the hip" and capture everything from the Earth to the heavens in the process.

What's in the Box
Lomography Fisheye camera, hand strap, editorial booklet, and full documentation.

Expect a fun little camera with a lot of laughs for the buck.
J. Skilton
Best thing to do would be to cover the flash with something (like a napkin) to lessen its strength, or just to only use this camera outside on bright, sunny days.
Daniel C. Jennings
I'm no photographer and I just wanted a camera to take fun pictures with my friends.

Cheap little camera with a pretty good glass lens. Produces suprisingly sharp and striking photos. Fixed focus and shutter / aperture, and the lens barrel partly blocks the flash, so use fast film - 400 or 800 speed - and shoot in well-lit rooms or daylight. I spent the last week sticking it in peoples faces, and the prints made us laugh. If you're expecting a Nikon, you'll be disappointed - so, Don't Expect a Nikon! Expect a fun little camera with a lot of laughs for the buck. 5 stars because it does all it tries to do.

I read the comments (even the bad one) before I purchased this camera. I took a chance because for something that might be really cool, its only $40. And he was right, the viewfinder is useless, but they even tell you that in the manual. Also, you do have to get really close to the subject, and shots only come out good if there's LOTS of light (especially indoor). Anyway, my first set of prints came out just okay, with a few amazing shots. From that set of prints I learned how to maximize the potential of this camera. The key is to fill up the frame. I took a shot of my friend out in a parking lot. The foreground was just her and the background was the sky. It came out so cool because the entire frame had something in it. There were scattered clouds everywhere, if the sky had been clear it would have just been clear blue space. But because I filled up the frame with objects everywhere, there were things to be distorted with the fisheye. I took another shot of the courtyard of a tall apartment building. That came out great because there were so many vertical lines and the fisheye could bend them. This camera doesn't take great pictures by itself so don't expect it to. If you've got the talent, imagination, or just plain curiousity, it's a great way to spend $40. I love it!

Lomo cameras are a lot of fun. Shooting from the hip, so to say, is their motto and it works with their cameras. This camera has an awesome lens that capures your world in a whole new way. Yes this camera is plastic and cheap feeling, but the results are awesome. Rich in color and it bends your world through its fish eye lens. Have fun! I am!

I bought this camera to work with distorted effects in photography. When looking through the lens one does not see the fisheye effect, it occurs on the negative. The first few rolls I shot were in black and white film(kodak 400 b/w processing) and I was not satisfied. However, I began to shoot in color film (kodak 400) and the photos are absolutely beautiful. The lens has a depth of 170 degrees so aim up more when shooting vertical as to not include yourself in the image by accident. Also,beware of photo technicians, many of my photos were crop incorrectly. Overall, it is a lovely camera and I definately suggest it.

A pleasant little camera that takes good (for a toy camera) quality fisheye shots. The image circle is smaller than a 35mm frame, so be prepared for images that look like they were taken through a toilet paper roll. You'll see the inside of the lens barrel. The build quality is just a hair above a disposable camera, dressed up with some faux leather. It's certainly a good alternative to going out and buying a "real" fisheye lens just to screw around, but as you would expect from the Lomographic Society - it's about twice as expensive as it should be.

Being a long time photo nut, for the holidays, my wife bought me the fish eye, in gold no less.

I shot Fujicolor 400, took pictures of my car from all kinds of crazy angles, streets, people, all were shot with the awarness that the viewfinder just was an aid.

Took the the film into a one hour developer, with the following instructions, no prints, just do the negatives and put them on a cd, he did that,got them home and viewed them.

They were wonderful, did a little work on them with Picasa 2 and converted some to black and white, it seems like artwork.

Today in Queens NY, Floyd Bennet Naval Air Station, the Concord was taken off the deck of the Intrepid and is now on view to the Public, am taking the Lomo with me, should be fascinating.

My only negative about the Fisheye is that the film advance is a bit raggedy, but really works fine.

I love this camera

This camera is a pretty basic cheap film camera, but it takes surprisingly good photos. I love how some of my photos came out with it, I caught a hot air balloon show, and the fish eye view makes it look totally surreal. this is definitely worth the money.

This adorable lightweight camera is perfect for people who want a unique look to their photos but don't have the money to invest in fancy camera bodies and wide-angle lenses. The fisheye camera is as easy to use as any point-and-click, and it's fixed-focus lens means no zooming, focusing, or other photographic buzz-killers. What you see is what you get, wrapped into a gently bended shape with vignetted corners. The only consideration is that you must photograph well-lit subjects or shoot outside, as there is no aperature or shutter speed control-but it's a lot of fun!! Try to recreate all your favorite band photos from the '90s by shooting on high-speed black and white film.
