Title: Greg Dash’s Lofi Fish-Eye camera
Post by: SimonW on April 04, 2013, 08:44:42 AM
Student Greg Dash’s Lofi Fish-Eye camera is little over 4cms long and 2cms high, has only one button and no LCD screen. But the £65 camera’s 12 megapixels and its ability to shoot expensive looking photographs has proved popular with photography lovers.

Looks like a lot of fun for the money.

..... its ability to shoot expensive looking photographs has proved popular with photography lovers.


I'm intrigued, I've got a fisheye lens and I'm afraid to say my pictures don't look expensive. What does an expensive photograph look like? ???

Has anyone here taken one?

Here you go, a couple of expensive looking fisheye pics taken this morning - with my very, very expensive £10 fisheye lens on my phone camera. Except (hangs head in shame) only 8MP - but it does do AF, Macros, ISO 100-800 and Exposure Compensation

Vignettes a bit!

Distorts around the edges a bit!

  Alan. I feel it may help if, by way of comparison, I offer this cheap looking Fisheye picture.  :tup:
