Upgrade Photography equipment 2.1 :)

So few months ago i upgraded my photography equipment as you can see in previous posts *link* and *link* and now I'm going for a light upgrade due to future projects and ideas trying to achieve.

So this is what I'm getting :)

1.Opteka .35x HD² Super Wide Angle Panoramic Macro Fisheye Lens for Canon EOS.

I'm so in love with the fisheye wide angle effect I tried it using my fisheye2 camera *review link* it was amazing so I decided to get it and use it with my Canon EOS 60D.

2.Fotodiox 16"x16" Studio In a Box for Table Top photography, complete light Tent/Cube Kit with Four Backdrops + Two Lights + 1 Camera Stand.

I wanted to get one of this for so long time but I decided to do my own *link* but with time I think you will need to get something more professional and more reliable.

3.Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack for Select Canon Digital SLR Cameras (Retail Package)

This isn't much of an upgrade then a need because If you checked my upgrade post *link* I got the Canon BG-E9 Battery Grip without getting an extra battery I thought it was included apperantlly it wasn't *oops* :p

That's all for now the packages have been shipped and I'm waiting for them to arrive hopefully at the start of next week *crossing fingers*

Fisheye2 Camera #lomography

so as you know i have made some awesome upgrade to my photography equipments *Link* *Link* i decided since now i got all this awesome cameras from #lomography website *Link* i'm going to use each camera with one film roll and see how its going to work and then share with you guys my reviews and some shoots to see the results.

i decided to start with the awesome piece of art the Fisheye2 camera, ahh i can't tell you how much i love this piece of plastic its so amazing it gives you a 170 degrees wide angle with a circular kinda of framed picture with an amazing focus in the middle and kinda out of focus at the adage, great for close ups and for portraits.

it takes all kinds of 35mm film rolls, it had 1 fixed aperture setting its f/8, it have 2 shutter speeds N=1/100 and B bulb, it shoots 36 frames and it have a multiple exposure feature you can go double or as much exposures as you want on one frame and it have a standard hotshoe & built-in flash (powered by one “AA“ battery).

it is must / fun to have camera for traveling, everthing about it is jus fun fun fun :D

now lets talk about the thing you should take in consideration:

1. its better used with 400ISO film roll, my first film roll was 200ISO it was nice for outdoor photography but indoor or in low light conditions it was hard to figure it out.

2.the build-in flash, it great but i think its better to use and external one because the build-in one can't fill out all of the photo as you can see in the bottom right corner, but anyway it kinda give a nice and unique touch to the shoot.

more info visit its official website *Link*

next review will be on the sprocket rocket camera :)
