It is! How'd you manage to get a tour of the suite? Very cool - my wife would flip to see it in person!

Still waiting to find out how Bricker got to see the castle suite!

Gdad - I've got probably a couple thousand new fisheye shots, I just need some time to go through them. My one and only Spaceship Earth fisheye is remarkably similar to yours (though of course it won't get the HDR treatment), and night shots of the Imagination fountains at night was on the list but I was never able to make it happen. I think there are a fair number of "new" shots as well as some often-done photos and a set that is a blatant copy of some shots and you and Code did after the Disboards Photo Summit 2010.

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.

I just have a cheap Bower fisheye attachment lens, but I'm having a lot of fun with it! I like it for what it can do! No Disney pictures with it yet, just my son and his friends from our local skate park!!




normally as a rule, I don't keep a picture if the boys don't land the trick, but this one was soo neat and he was soo close to staying on the board!!





this one is one of my favs!

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.
