hello all :)

i've been wondering how to get that fisheye effect, without buying a dedicated fisheye lens? quality doesnt really matter that much since i like to pp and get that lomo-ish look, i just like the dark circular vignettes and alil distortion would be nice. heard of some 0.45x uwa/fisheye converters. but they're so many brands i dnt know which one works best. anyone has experience with these and have a specific brand to recommend? a rough price gauge and the location to buy would be awesome. thanks in advance for any replies (if there is hehehe)! ;p

Those fisheye/ultra-wide converter is crap.
I used to have one but the quality of the photos is damn poor.

The photos taken with the 0.5x or 0.45x converter will not be sharp.
Took it out and take a few shots then never used it ever again so sold it away.

I think do it on photoshop would be better. ;)

Yes i believe that'll be a better option, although i've never really used a fisheye converter before. But from the things i've read, it's not really worth it. You're better off taking a pic thru the peephole on the door. Hahaha. Anyways I'm saving up for a fisheye too! :cool:

Hey newbie with a question here. Since photoshop can create 'bokeh' effect, fish eye effect. Can i know why ppl are still gg for fast lens? I know its for low light condition, but other den that? Since we photoshop can make a 'bokeh' den why still need a 50mm f1.8? Sorry to side track.

what more you can do is....take multiple snapshots, on tripod ofcourse panning say 180 degree and then join it in PS..and then use the fisheye effect...will give you the desired result of UWA lens...just my 0.02

cool! :D
this is the cheapest one. u only need to spent 2dollars for this :D
as u can get the reading glases for a dollar at any 1dollar shop right? :bsmilie:
IMHO it gives the fisheye effect but it does NOT cover the 180 degrees which most people look to for getting a fisheye not just just blurred edges, no? anyways a mounted lens will always be better than any DIY lenses or attachments so yeah, save those few bucks to get a larger portion for your next meal and save up for the REAL thing!;)
