The Lomography Fisheye 1 is a paragon of photographic engineering excellence. No, I can’t say that with a straight face. The tape I used to get a roll of UltraFine 100 film to adhere to the take-up spool (and subsequently fell off), laughable frame counter, and build quality of McDonald’s Happy Meal toy makes that Impossible.

Joking aside, I knew that this camera (a $2.99 pickup on FleaBay) was not a serious one. It’s not meant to be. It is, however, a cheap way to play with fisheye photography and not worry if you break the camera in the process.
