Street Fishing

So I took the Peleng 8mm F3.5 circular fisheye with a 1.5x teleconverter on my Sony Alpha 700 around town, shooting at F8 and manual focus at 1 meter, with the camera hanging down at arm’s length. The teleconverter and APS-C crop factor gives it a similiar look to the 16mm F2.8 diagonal fisheye on full-frame.

The idea was taken from a forum member on Dyxum.

I walked past people, making sure to snap just before they pass my fisheye.

Most people in crowded places don’t realize that I’ve snapped. But then, I continued walking without turning around to see if they saw me.

Until I get a new M42 adapter, the Peleng won’t be sitting on the A900 yet. Yes, I sold my other 2 M42 lenses with the 2 adapters that I had!

Man, I can’t wait to show you street birding!

    Alas no, these are old pictures. 🙁

    If they were new, that would mean I have the M42 adapter… which I don’t. Well not till I sell the A700 then I can get the adapter. 😀
