Fun with Wide Angle Views

I’m a big fan of fisheye distortion, it’s more visually interesting, tells more about the context of a picture, and it’s so very useful 3d rendering. This “Fun” camera by Jian Guan comes equipped with a 16 mm lens, also mirrored for those great shots of yourself while holding the camera as far away as possible. Taking formal cues from a magnifying glass may seem unnecessary, but I think it does a great job of connecting the function to the shape.

    finally can see some good ideas on this website!
    nice idea, good design (a bit end of 90’s japanese design 😉 ) and ideal matching concept and function shape. With the expansion of the lomo market or other “fun” cameras, and the low cost of the technology now, I wish to see it on the shelves.

    Keep going!
