Lomo Fisheye #2

Welcome to Lost River and in this post I’m going to post my first camera review. This is right out of my personal camera collection and it’s the Lomo Fisheye #2. Many of you may be familiar with the current Lomo craze from it’s cameras and film to the apps for our cell phones. I do like some of the films but honestly most of their cameras are overpriced hunks of plastic although they do market some refurbished range finders and such which are pretty neat. Ok back to the matter at hand.

The Lomo Fisheye #2 is currently priced anywhere from $59.99 to $74.99 depending on where you look online. Either way those prices are way to high for what you are paying for which is a 90% plastic camera. The camera itself actually looks pretty cool with the metal accents until you actually pick it up and can feel how truly cheap it is. I know when I was used it I was always waiting for that moment when the film rewind lever snapped off in my fingers. 

As for the actual shooting it can’t be any easier. Let me start off by giving you a run down of the basic specs on the camera.

  • 170 degree fisheye
  • fixed f8 apeture
  • fixed 1/100 shutter speed
  • internal flash
  • plastic lens
  • "B" bulb setting
  • "MX" multiple exposure setting
  • Hotshoe mount
  • 1 AA Battery Required

After a couple rolls of film here are my biggest take away’s. No matter what you shoot it looks like it was shot from a ship’s porthole. Shots with the flash taken up close tend to blow out the subject. Shots taken inside without the flash tend to turn out really dark. Shots taken outside in daylight look great! ok maybe not great but they are mostly passable. Some subject work well others don’t but that could be said with most any fisheye lens. The biggest thing to keep in mind is if you don’t expect much from the camera you won’t be disappointed in the results, it’s mainly about having fun in the end.

Motorfest 2014

Welcome to the very first blog post here at Lost RIver Photography. This is where I will give you some insight into my personal life, out-takes on photo shoots and reviews of cameras and gear. I hope you enjoy the site and keep coming back for more.

Summer in Idaho brings lots of outdoor fun including the Northwest Motorfest. A total gear heads dream as the fairgrounds fill with hundreds of drool worthy cars and trucks. I know next to nothing about cars or how to fix/restore them. I like to look and dream and my favorite to hear them running. Nothing like that deep rumble of a big block V8.
