    I don't know whether you can buy a non-fisheye wide attachment lens for your camera, I would think it probable.

    You can't stop a fish-eye being a fish-eye I'm afraid - that's what it does.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    The more filed-of-view that you try to cram into a normal space, the more distorted the image becomes. There's not too much you can do about it. Some lenses may be better at reducing distortion than others, but you pay for it. I would guess you would be able to find wide angle lenses for you camera, but they probably won't be quite as wide as the fish-eye.
