I want fisheye really badly! I plan on putting it on my canon 50mm f1.8
I got one of those from a friend for free.
Fun, but awful image quality. I guess they are worth the $35 if you know what to expect.
Those sample images are BS. Dont waste your $35. It would be better spent on a nice bottle of bourbon. Your images will be so soft on the edges, they will be useless to you.
distort it with photoshop.
save the $35.
I'm so glad someone asked this question. I see hundreds of these ads on e-bay, and normally I figure when I see this many listings for the same item by the same person, "ShamWOW that must be scam!" But I'm curious nonetheless.
Not really a scam, but you get what you pay for. There's a reason the Nikkor 16mm fisheye retails for $1700...
I agree with all the above. I was sweet talked into buying one when I got a new Nikon body in SF 20 years ago. It is a POS.
There seems to be no part of the image that is actually in focus. The main reason I was suckered was the brand name - Panavision. I had heard of that name, of course, but soon came to doubt its origin from there.
Run away! Run away!
Any suggestions to make it look realistic? My distortions always look terrible :[
