Lomography has announced Fisheye Baby 110 Camera, a cheap toy camera that actually takes photos. The very name is pretty self-explanatory: the camera features a fisheye lens, uses Lomography’s 110 film, and the “Baby” in the name refers to its small size. So, let’s see what this baby can do.
As you can probably imagine, a camera this small isn’t particularly powerful nor made for fashion or wedding shoots. But it’s a fun toy you can play with on casual shooting occasions. You can choose between single exposure, bulb mode for long exposures, and multiple exposure mode. The camera gives the classic fisheye 170° view and features a PC sync socket.
When it comes to the film, a camera this tiny obviously uses a special kind of film: Lomography’s 110 film format. It comes in cartridge format and it can be switched halfway through a roll. There are seven film flavors to choose from:
- LomoChrome Turquoise 110 ISO 100–400
- LomoChrome Purple 110 ISO 100–400
- LomoChrome Metropolis 110 ISO 100–400
- Color Tiger 110 ISO 200
- Lobster Redscale 110 ISO 200
- Peacock Slide 110 ISO 200
- B&W Orca 110 ISO 100
Here are a few sample images so you get the idea what you get with this baby camera:
Sure, the Fisheye Baby 110 isn’t going to be your go-to camera for serious photoshoots, maybe even for photo walks. But it can be a great step out of your comfort zone, a cool gift for photographers in your life… Or perhaps the first camera for your child if you’d like them to become a photographer someday, like you (no pressure, kiddo). There are two versions to choose from. Fisheye Baby Bauhaus and Fisheye Baby Metal, and they’re both priced at $34.90.
