This review is from: Lomographic Fisheye Number 2 Camera (Electronics)
great little lomo camera. i love lomo and this is just one more reason why. i've found myself not using the detachable viewfinder though, although it is fun to take off the camera and look at the world through it. carry it around in your pocket--seriously!

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!
