fisheye complete (i.e. the mind blowing results)


so, unfortunately this isn't exactly something you can easily replicate without a machine shop. although the concept of using a security door lens as a camera fisheye is simple and it's just a matter to figuring out a creative way of mounting it. if you have any bright ideas let me know. even though the mounting bracket is super simple it's always cool seeing a design go from the computer screen into the real world. i'm quite happy with the result. expect lots of fisheye pics soon on my flickr site.





the first official picture with the assembled fisheye. they amazing view from my desk at work (only 4 more days!):


thanks to stefano for lending his machining expertise.
