Lomographic Fish Eye No. 2 Rip Curl Special Edition
Using the billions of camera apps on your iPhone to take photos is cool and all, but all those goddamn digital film simulators have made people forget about actual film; and wrongfully so. There’s something infinitely enjoyable about hittin’ the town, busting out a shitty analog camera, stealing a few souls, and anxiously wasting sixty minutes at the one-hour photo lab so that you can witness your equally shitty documentarian efforts on tangible prints.

Camera maker/film enthusiast The Lomographic Society and surf company Rip Curl ostensibly share that sentiment and have teamed up to create a collaborative film camera with a built-in fisheye lens and flash. The super compact Fish Eye No. 2 Rip Curl Special Edition camera captures nearly 180 degrees in its depth of field. Think of the possibilities for surf photos: barrels will look even more barreled, and the surfer can look like he’s pretty much upside-down. Not to mention, every-day photos will turn out extra sweet as well—you can capture the whole damn party in one photo and skyscrapers will look semicircular.

Normally you’d have to lug around a big-ass rig to get that kind of wide perspective, but only weighing in at a few pebbles, the ultra portable camera should get you shooting and appreciating film in no time.

And perhaps the greatest perk: Your resulting photos will give off the impression that you live in some bizarre distorted alternate dimension and people will beg you to take them to it – you’ll be fighting off the hot dates left and right. Plus, the camera comes in a sweet colorway. That’s a win-win situation either way you look at it. Hey, iPhone Appstore: smell ya later!

Hipstamatic is bullshit! Film is where it's at. Love the camera design and 180 degrees in dof is bonkers.

maybe this be a dumb question....but I assume this thing is water-proof jah? from the epic nuclear-blast-defying housing on the lense and the photos taken seemingly from out in the water I think maybe it is....can anyone confirm that? The features list on the rippy website doesn't saying anything along the lines of "waterproof to 5m" etc...
