Just purchased a fisheye for my Nikon digi SLR. So I'll be joining the Fellowship soon!

The photos here are gorgeous. Do you folks use tripods very often? Daytime? Night? Or the is capture of ambient light usually enough?

Thanks in advance.

In terms of light, they're about the same as any other lens... most fisheyes are not very fast (F2.8-F3.5) so you may get slower shutter speeds at night than you would with a fast prime. Of course, the wide angle can hide camera shake so that helps... but I think that most of the night shots you're seeing here are taken with a tripod.

How about something from my new toy - Lomography Fisheye 2 Camera (yes, I am serious, it is a toy).



The pic is vaguely Disney related - that's my Mickey Mouse coffee mug behind the train.

Thats pretty cool- I have been shooting a lot lately with my Holga fisheye lens- I have no idea the field of view though since I don't have any of the film develiped yet. I'm wondering if it covers the frame or is circular like this.

When I was looking to buy this, I did look at the Holga as an option but cheaped out to get the dedicated fisheye. The galleries I saw of people using the Holga with the fisheye also had the circular image, and I think it was actually a full circle, and not cut off top and bottom like mine (mind you I am shooting 35 mm and I believe you would use 120, so that makes some sense).

I have to say I am liking my toy and looking forward to taking it to Disney in March.

Exactly right- finally got it developed last night. I love Sams Club- 2x 120 rolls for $3 in one hour.

Thanks so much. Can't wait to experiment when my new lens arrives.

Multiple Exposure

One of the fun features of the Lomography Fisheye 2 is the ability to do multiple exposures on the same frame easily. My musical son:
