    I would love a fisheye lens :hail:

    But on the other hand (sigh) I don't have that much pocket money, so I guess a fisheye converter is more realistic... Thing is, are they any good? I guess you lose image quality, but what else? What are all the negatives?

    I've heard both terms: fisheye filters and fisheye converters. Is there a difference between the two?

    For my old digicam, I had a fish eye converter that screwed into my CP 4300. I guess it works, but you will lose several stops of light and the "circle" effect never really did it for me. The edges weren't clear (with converter attached), and it was almost like cutting a circle in cardboard and taping it to your lens.

    Is this for a film a digicam?


    Just my experience.

    Hi Craig,

    Your experience is what I want to know, so it's a great help. I'm using film (I briefly had a point and shoot digital camera but I think I froze it up a mountain LOL).
