Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Film

Film:
"Today I shot a roll using the lomography negative 35mm film iso 100 and the pictures came out clear when in bright sunny weather."
_
"Unable to load film = sent it back to Amazon!"
_
"I had problems loading the film, but they had a great customer support line and I figured it out really fast."
_
"First, the wheel would only turn in the wrong direction thus not forwarding the film, and the second time the release button could not be pushed at all."
_
"Film isn't too hard to find, most drug stores and grocery stores carry a few selections."
_
"I'm using it for fun shots but I didn't anticipate the how expensive film processing is ($12 & up a roll,) and how little I know about light."
_
"The lomography site has cool film available as well if you want Instagram results with a film camera."
_
"I was really excited to get this as I was interested in trying film cameras and this camera looked so fun."

Flash

Flash:
"Negative:Because of the location of the built-in flash and the size of the lens, extremely close up flash pictures will contain an annoying shadow caused by the lens housing."
_
"i IMMEDIATLEY BOUGHT FILM FOR IT AND STARTED SHOOTING I NOW PICS DONT TURN OUT PERFECT BUT I FOUND PICS TAKEN WITHOUT FLASH WAS UGLY AND HORRIBLE."
_
"#5 Great sun flare (just remember to use the flash if the sun is behind your subject), if you forget, your subject will be darker than you actually intended."
_
"Since it's on the hot shoe of the camera you won't have anymore dark areas, it's an inexpensive flash that works great especially at night!"
_
"The Fisheye 1 was my first lomo camera but after burning out the flash (from too much use) I purchased the Fisheye 2 which I love even more!"
_
"The flash is powerful and effective for a few feet away, and i got lit up, fun shots of me and my friends!"
_
"Pros:cheaper than dSLR + fisheye lenspretty sturdy for being plasticeasy to use, good for beginnersallows major creativityCons:viewfinder is higher than the lens, so you sort of have to guess where to aim the lensdoesn't work in darker settings; would recommend using on very sunny daysthe large lens actually blocks the flash, so you have a dark spot on the side of the photoAll in all, this is a pretty good camera for someone who is new to the concept of film photography."

Image:
"you can do really awesome photo effects with it.. the only annoying draw back is that it really only works if the object you're going to photograph is close to the lens.. otherwise you really can't tell there's even a fisheye effect.."
_
"i IMMEDIATLEY BOUGHT FILM FOR IT AND STARTED SHOOTING I NOW PICS DONT TURN OUT PERFECT BUT I FOUND PICS TAKEN WITHOUT FLASH WAS UGLY AND HORRIBLE."
_
"Throw it in your DSLR camera bag for s*%Ts and giggles, and some pretty cool pics."
_
"fun to experiment with exposure times and multiple images on one exposure.. all and all fun product my daughter absolutely loves it gives you that skate video fisheye look at a cheap price."
_
"The pics shot in decent lighting were crisp, cleat, and downright cool looking."
_
"I didn't really expect such great image quality, in bright sunlight you get great results no matter what speed film you're using."
_
"I love the double exposure where images will overlay and look funky, as well."

Lens

Lens:
"A feature I don't particularly like is the flimsy silicon lens cap, which never stays on the lens."
_
"Negative:Because of the location of the built-in flash and the size of the lens, extremely close up flash pictures will contain an annoying shadow caused by the lens housing."
_
"The viewfinder is great and lets you see the way a fisheye lens sees, which is fun to look at especially when it's detachable and it makes people like and understand what the camera does."
_
"The only MINOR problem with it is that you must be pretty close to the subject to get good details, although that should be expected with a fisheye lens."
_
"As I mentioned, the flash is blocked a little by the lens, so I would recommend buying a ring flash if that will bother you."
_
"Pros:cheaper than dSLR + fisheye lenspretty sturdy for being plasticeasy to use, good for beginnersallows major creativityCons:viewfinder is higher than the lens, so you sort of have to guess where to aim the lensdoesn't work in darker settings; would recommend using on very sunny daysthe large lens actually blocks the flash, so you have a dark spot on the side of the photoAll in all, this is a pretty good camera for someone who is new to the concept of film photography."
_
"Since I live in sunny LA, I took many pictures outside in the sun on beautiful days, totally abusing lens flare, lots of sky, lots of sunlight."
