$60 Fisheye Lens

I just ran across this inexpensive fisheye lens. Its not at all clear from the manufacturer website, but from the blog I can gather that APS-C & APS-H sensors (most digital cameras) would probably work just fine and project the full fisheye circle with no cropping onto the sensor. I know that some newer Nikon and Canon cameras can record video… perhaps this will interest some of you.

Planning to order some on Amazon.

Despite being dangerous I really wish I could experiment with Mercury. Perhaps I’ll look around for a lab that would be willing to grant footage or something. Anyway exotic metals are very fascinating elements to watch. They look like a living breathing species
