A fun camera.

Using the Lomo fisheye camera is easy. As there is only one shutter speed you have to choose your film depending on the weather conditions. On bright days ISO 200 is fine, on dull days ISO 400 is better. Modern film is quite flexible, so you will have usable results. Inside or at night you'll have to use B mode and guess. The flash only lights a part of the image and will do for funny portraits. It's a toy or fun camera, all plastic, but it's funny indeed.
