Fisheye lens adapters

I’ve wanted a fisheye lens forever…and really like my Lomo Fisheye camera. Super wide angles and fisheyes are fun to play around with…just not $800 kinds of fun (the cost of a real fisheye lens).

So when I stumbled across this lens adapter for a measely $37 + shipping (from this eBay store – just troll through the lens section for your camera type), I figured I’d try it out.

So far, I’m in love! You can also detach the main part of the lens and it leaves you with an awesome macro lens…slightly better than the macro lenses I also have…so it’s really two lenses in one…or three if you zoom the fisheye in a little for a super wide-angle lens.

Here’s a few shots I took with it attached to my Nikon 18-55mm lens:

    In fact, you can even use old Pentax “screw mount” lenses and medium format film lenses with adapters.

    cool.. I’ve been wondering about getting one of these as a cheap-o alternative to buying a real fisheye lens :) Good to see some samples. I figure its not like I’m needing L-series quality when I’m just firing off fisheye photos for fun, so I think I will pick one up :)

    SO CAN I ASK, WOULD THIS FISHEYE LENS WORK ON A NIKON D60? OR WOULD YOU NEED SOME KIND OF OTHER ADAPTER TO ATTACH IT?

    • John says:

      It should work on the D60 no problem…just make sure you buy one that matches the filter thread on your existing lens.
