I had no previous experience with film cameras, and only the very very basics of digital photography. It's safe to say I was a newcomer.
However I quickly loaded it up with some film and off I went. The manuals that came with it were very user friendly so I had no problem setting it up, and getting a rough idea how to work it.
After getting the photos back I was impressed with the results. Some of them were horrific, due to my amateur photography skills, but some of them turned out quite well. (I'll post a link down below if you want to see them for some examples of the photographs from a first time user, and not the specifically chosen, computer enhanced ones)
However, a couple of annoyances about the camera.
First: The winding spool snapped on the first time I removed a roll of film. This was irritating, but it still works. It just requires more effort and time to remove the film.
Secondly: This is more personal opinion, but the flash can cast heavy shadows over one side of the photo. This can make cool effects, but in my experience so far it doesn't look too great. But if that's what your into then count this as a pro to the camera.
One of the best things about this camera though is the multiple exposure switch. This can make a couple of average photos blend together and look great. I wont go into too much detail, but it is easy to use and creates good photos. Just wind, take a photo, hit the switch and take another. Simple as that.
Overall, the camera is fun, easy to use and can create some quirky nice looking photos. I would recommend it if you want some fun.
(Here are some examples of the photos. As of me writing this there are only fisheye photos up there, but I'm sure that will change. Also, excuse the grainy look as I had to scan them into the computer)
Over all i love this camera compared to my past lomo's , this one truley stands out and its definatley a must have for camera enthusiasts of even just for fun!
The camera takes standard 35mm film which is very cheap, and the camera runs on 1 single AA battery. It lasts much, much longer than it does with a digital camera so actually taking photos costs very little. The instructions for putting the film in and winding it on are simple enough, with written directions and a numbered line drawing. Tis v simple, indeed, and nothing to worry about. It gets a little confusing after that, though.
The fisheye2 comes with a glossy booklet filled with photos, and it's a fab little addition. I can well imagine the little booklets being sold individually, such is its coolness. It also comes with a huge poster-sized "recipe" poster, where it gives you hints and clues as to how to take weird and wonderful photos. Assuming you don't want to add a colour flash, you can still take a surprisingly wide variety of photos. Streaky, reversed, multiple exposure... and there are instructions for each style. Not that I could figure out what they were saying.
Once you've wound the film in, you can alternate between "Night", "Day" and "Bulb" setting, you can chnage the exposure length, and you can decide whether you want an internal or external flash. Much of this is written in gobbledygooky yoot speak: lots of "slammmin'" and "buckwild" and it doesn't make a lick of sense. But experimenting is fun, and cheap, and the wonderful thing about fisheye photography is no photo is a failure.
You can take photos from a distance or right up close, and the closer you are, the more the photo distorts. In other words, if you're a little sensitive about the size of your honker, don't let anyone take a photo of your face up close. It'll be hugely stylish, but your snozz will be bigger than your face... and that giant oak standing tree behind you. The tiny oak tree mocks your snozz.
The photo quality is really good, and it definitely isn't a toy. Fisheye lenses for digital cameras cost upwards of £500, so this is a much cheaper, less intimidating alternative, and it will enable you to cover your fridge and walls in fab 180 degree shots.
