Cute Fisheye

Cameras. They can be vintage or cutting edge, bulky or sleek, but generally awe-inspiring… but you’d never use the word adorable to describe a camera, now would you? Strangely enough, that’s the only word that best describes the Lomography Fisheye Baby. With its incredibly toyish proportions, and even colours, the Fisheye Baby is cute, and embodies everything that’s fun about photography.

The Lomography Fisheye Baby 110 Basic is a tiny film camera that produces a circular fisheye image on 110 film. This Baby literally fits in your palm. It’s small enough to come out of a cereal box, but behind its playful exterior is Lomography’s expertise. Its images are extremely soft and dreamy, which could be a pro or con depending on your aesthetic sensibilities. The lens, for instance, is a 170° fisheye type, and the camera itself clicks some seriously good pictures (on 110 film) with absolutely delicious colours that your phone can never match. In fact, the Fisheye Baby even takes multiple exposure shots and has a PC flash connector.

The camera is fun, but using it isn’t a perfect experience—if the film cartridge doesn’t have a frame counter built-in there is no way to tell how many exposures you’ve made on the roll until you finish it, and you may have a hard time finding a lab that can process and scan 110 film.

Available in limited edition, the Fisheye Baby may seem like a toy, and honestly, it is… but what better way is there to capture vivid and fun moments of your life?

Price: From N20,000

  1. I do love the way you have framed this issue plus it does present us some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, coming from everything that I have observed, I just trust as the actual feedback pack on that people stay on point and not get started upon a soap box involving some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this superb point and whilst I can not really concur with this in totality, I regard your standpoint.
