Fisheye Submarine ideal for underwater pics
December 5, 2008
Last year I purchased a type of Lomography camera called a Fisheye, which incorporated a pristine 170 degree lens on a plastic body. It is one of the best purchases I have made for my camera arsenal, and this year I got an excellent accessory for it ” an equally inexpensive underwater housing called the Fisheye Submarine.
Just load your Fisheye with some speedy, high ISO film, secure your camera into the Submarine case, and you are ready to go into the deep. The housing safely operates at a depth of 65 feet, which is deeper than most of the sea-life you might see snorkeling, and a rubber seal ensures your camera stays dry. The simplistic design of hard plastic for the Submarine allows for uninhibited access to shutter, advance and flash controls making the camera just as easy to use as when it’s above water.
The crystal-clear polycarbonate lens opening is great for shooting in all types of weather and in all types of situations; in fact, the shots are just as focused and bursting with as much color as ever. Add that to the lens on the camera, which provides a massive field of view and depth of field, and you can’t miss anything with this combo.
Although this camera combo is great for a sunny surfing trip to the beach, it is just as fun in winter ” no need to worry about dropping it in the snow, or snowflakes seeping into your film. You might even take it by the Sky Hotel for some wacky poolside poses. So whether it is summer or winter, raining or snowing, this is the perfect set up to get unique shots and angles, while having a whole lot of fun.
