The images that it produced were literally small circles with maybe 5% of the subject showing. I had not seen any images like these on-line so as I re-stored this lens I thought maybe this was a rare batch or a unique Holga effect. As I unwrapped and attached my new Holga glass fisheye lens, and attached the fisheye viewer (sold separately) I didn’t know what to expect.
It is a heavy lens on the plastic camera so after I loaded it I was careful to make sure that it was secure before, and after every image, and I was careful how I transported it from one location to the next on the tripod. In spite of all the care I will admit that I took my first three pictures with the lens cap on – oopse.
I’m really pleased with the glass fisheye lens. It works really well with the viewer, and I learned that you can move in really close. I frame with the camera so when I developed my test roll I found that I could have moved in even closer to my subjects in spite of what the viewer displayed.
I’m really excited to start actually working with it.
