This is as if it were made for me - I still use film cameras and have even exhibited and sold blown up versions of pics taken on a 35mm automatic - so you can imagine my joy on discovering this - and guess what, I've got a new obsession! The first roll of film i developed from this was enough to say the images come out even better than the ones you get in the gorgeous booklet included with the camera - the fish eye lens image produced isn't exactly as a SL one would be but it is a Lomo and that's why it's so cool. It's got it's own way of capturing subject matter and letting light in. It's kind of unpredictable, to fabulous effect! Indoors shots using the built in flash are great as you get the darkness surounding your subject giving real emphasis to whatever it is you are photgraphing, making things seem quite arty. If you have a cute animal at home it's for you, also. Close ups of animals faces are possibly the most amusing (albeit the most overdone) thing you can do with this camera. Sometimes things are done again and again because they're so great!

Amazing photo's with a pretty cool style. However the camera itself is very delicate and "cheap" for the actual price. The plastic wheel that feeds the film in broke for no reason at all and only had it for a few months.
