    what camera do you have?

    You can always get one of these if its a P&S
    http://cgi.ebay.com/WIDE-38-FISHEYE...yZ116190QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    just type the name of your cam in there and fisheye.

    THere not the greatest if you are doing anything serious.theres a drop in IQ, ecspecially near the edges.

    But For $40 there fun to mess around with. i have one.
    and i like it alot, now looking to get a real fisheye lens for my D50, just need that extra $800.. lol

    On a P&S, there are fisheye converters (as orirus mentionned). On an SLR, get a fisheye lens.

    However, it is possible to take 4 shots at the widest setting of you lens showing the top right, top left, bottom right and bottom left of the large image then stitch them together in Photoshop to make a tall and wide panorama. Then use the distortion filter in photoshop at around -30 (tutorial). Finally, make a circular crop and voila, a fisheye-like image but not exactly.

    Note that -30 distortion is just an estimate, play around with it till it looks right.
