Fisheye 2

I was about to blog about a new Fisheye 2 camera a few days ago, when I decided to order it from a website abroad. Fisheye camera is one of's products. My earlier entry features sample pictures taken with the original Fisheye.

What's new with this version 2 are a flash hotshoe, multiple exposure mode, and bulb exposure. These features make it a lot better, in my opinion.

And, this morning a DHL guy came with the package. I was so surprised that it took only 3 days to arrive (placed order on June 6th, got here June 9th). However, fast and reliable shipment came with price. Apart from USD 25 I'd already paid for the shipping, they just charged me another THB 626 for Thai tax and tax handling(?).

The package included 1 Fisheye 2 camera, 1 Colorsplash flash, and Fisheye Circle Cutter, all for USD 77. I used my USD50 gift coupon I got as a prize from LHTD so it came down to USD 27. S&H was USD 25, plus tax THB 626 (approx. USD 15). That means I paid more for the shipping and tax than the camera itself! Very crazy.
