Soda can fisheye lens Answered

Make your own cheap fisheye lens for your camera with a peephole lens. This type of hack has been covered before including here and here, but it's always cool to see another take on it

That's awesome!!!! =D

Nice! What size is your camera lens that your using with this? I did this but got an extra large viewer/peephole at a hardware store in Brooklyn Chinatown, it fit right over my point and shoot lens.

I gotta try this. I've done remotely the same thing with binocular lenses for macro shots, but never a fish eye. Very innovative. Fitting additional lenses to a portable digital camera is a pain though.

The effect is really neat 

Really cool!

Any ideas from anyone on adapting one onto by Canon PowerShot A540? I found the lens adapter for it, but it is cone shaped, as opposed to just a short ring for the EOS.  Thanks!

That's rather nice   :-)
