Lomography Fisheye No. 2 (170-Degree Lens) Fixed Focus 35mm Viewfinder Camera Kit - Black/Silver

B&H # LOFEC2 Mfr # 947
You Pay: $54.95

The Lomo Fisheye No. 2 point and shoot camera is a fixed focus 35mm camera that offers a unique 170-degree view. This compacts everything around you into a compact circular image. Huge depth of field renders both the foreground and background in complete focus.

It's glass lens offers bright colors and high contrast, and with it's built-in electronic flash you can use it for day or night. Great for partying.

Building on the success of the original Fisheye model, this upgraded version now also includes a "B" setting, allowing the shutter to stay open and admit that natural nighttime light outside. Next, a multiple exposure switch enables as many shots as you like on the same frame. A fisheye viewfinder gives you a real view into the world you're shooting. A flash hotshoe allows for easy use with the Colorsplash Flash.

The 170-degree view 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.
The built-in electronic flash allows you to also use this during nighttime. Or take advantage of the added hot-shoe (shared with the fisheye viewfinder).
The "B" setting allows you to hold down the shutter button with your finger, keeping the shutter open for as long as you like, thereby inviting all the gorgeous ambient light outside to come on in.
When using the "N" setting, both the internal and hotshoe flash will fire when you hit the shutter button (first curtain). If you select "B", then the hotshoe flash will fire when you first depress the button (first curtain), and the internal flash will fire when you let go of the button (second curtain).
The MX switch allows you to take two or more shots on the same frame. Take your first shot, press the MX button, and you're now ready for the next one. Repeat as many times as you like.
The Fisheye No. 2 has been upgraded with a full metal jacket.

      I bought this camera because I wanted to have a small camera I could carry around to shoot fisheye images. This camera fits the bill. It also has Bulb, which makes it perfect for shooting during low light situations. I took a photo of a local Chinese restaurant's neon sign and was blown away when I scanned the negative.
      Three things to be careful of, though. Don't forget to take the cap off. Make sure you hold the cap and hand strap behind camera, or they'll show up in images. It's a very wide-angle view, so if you're not careful, your feet will show up in photos.

      I was really very excited to get this... my new toy. Iloaded up a roll of T-Max 400 and went out to shoot. Half ofthe roll I took at a local mall, the other half at a park.Everything outdoors turned out fine, but everything where Iused the flash is nothing but junk! The lens casing of thiscamera sticks out quite far, several inches, and thedesigners apparently did not take that into account whenplacing the flash-- ahorrible shadow is thrown across the lower right-hand cornerof each frame. I tried dodging, nothing seems to make theframes usable. I'm really horribly disappointed in thedesign of this camera on that front. I plan to get theadditional color flash... we'll see if that helps this problem!

      Problems Encountered: As stated above, a horrible shadow thrown across the lowerright-hand (landscape) corner of each frame when using theflash. This problem makes using the camera inside or underlow light conditions without a time exposure or externalflash completely useless!

        Easy carry, though strap a little fragile.
        Best used in day time-get real close!
        When using built in flash, I flip camera upside-down to cast shadow from lense a different direction-I rather use an attached flash, like my old SLR flash.

        Use it for all occasions. However, the lense cap does not fit (too big), and the viewfinder is easy to lose.

                I take this camera everehere with me, I started out with the fisheye 1 but recently upgraded to the fisheye 2 and it was well worth it. I love the fisheye viewfinder and the multi exposure setting! The flash is awesome and you evenhave the option of attaching an external flash with the shoe on top of it, I would highly recOmens this camera to everyone.

                      Y'all, this camera is so much fun! I've had a blast figuring it out and enjoying the ROCKIN' pictures I get from it. If you haven't used film (in a while or ever), it takes some getting used to, and learning how much light you need is a bit of a trial-and-error process, but once you get going, I don't know how you could possibly not love it.

                        I bought this almost two years ago and still absolutely love it.
                        Its a "toy" camera, which means its construction isn't perfect and its not totally reliable with its final product. The unreliability is part of the fun though! Since the exposure time and shutter-speed are fixed, it forces you to really think about the light settings in your shot, which is really educational for the budding photographer.

                        I've used color positive and color negative film with this camera, all worked well. I especially enjoy the color positive film because the colors will be so vibrant which can really accentuate your fisheye shot.

                        The flash works as one might expect - the lens will block the light from the flash in the bottom of the frame, so use in good light is recommended. Also, once film is loaded the batteries cannot be changed, so I rarely rely on the flash.

                        The camera is very "noticeable," and as such I get lots of questions about it -- which can get more people thinking about photography.

                        Scans from the film are not always perfect. A circular photo is created by the lens. You need to be careful when scanning because the large unexposed regions will confuse most auto-scanners. Another option is just to work with the scans in a RAW style editor to take out the effects of the scanning.

                          Great camera for close up magnified shots and just having fun with film. I am a beginner in film and love experimenting with it this. Minor setback is the dark corner that shows up when you set flash on an object that is further than 3-4 meters away. Still, 4 stars.

                          The Fisheye No. 2 Camera is one of the coolest cameras you can buy (and one of the best deals too!) Don't let the fact that it's super inexpensive and made of plastic turn you off to it. The images the camera produce aren't professional quality but if you're looking here, I don't think that's what you're looking for. You're looking for fun, interesting, and new ways to shoot everyday subjects. I took my Fisheye No. 2 to a dance party and the results were a hit with all my friends! The different settings like bulb, multiple exposure, and such are really cool! Also, flash wish a bulb exposure is SO cool, especially in a dark setting with like, glowsticks moving around! Haha all in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase of this camera and I highly reccomend it.

                            I got this lomography camera as a gift from my parents.They knew I'd love it, and in fact I did!

                            The camera has cool functions:
                            Flash off/on
                            Bulb and shutter block
                            You can have many shots as you like in the same frame.

                            The lens make the colors so bright. The housing for underwater photography fit perfect.
                            I'd definitely recomend this kit.

                              Fun little camera with a lot of features like shutter lock, long exposure and multiple exposure. I also enjoy the fisheye preview lens and built in flash.
                              I take this camera around a lot with me when I am at the beach or out with friends.

                                        I gave the lomo fisheye 2 as a gift and we both have been having so much fun. At first I was a little scared because it feels like a disposable camera and it sounds a little funny when you load it, I wasnt sure we loaded it correctly. Its worth the price for what it is. I would recommend this one over the fisheye 1 because of all the extra features like multiple exposures and shutter speed.
