Fun with a fisheye (and some film!)

Once in a while, Englewood Camera brings in some pretty cool, old gear. On the shelf right now is a Nikkor 10mm f/5.9 OP Fisheye with the viewfinder accessory. Check out these fun shots our employee Chris shot on a Nikon F3T (in mirror-lockup mode). You can adapt this sweet lens to a variety of digital cameras, such as a Sony A7, with a proper adapter (see second series of images in this post). The tube of the adapter needs to be wide enough to accommodate the back element of the lens. Make this fisheye yours for only $1,700.00!

For a little more fun, we put the Nikkor 10mm on a Sony A7 with a Metabones adapter. Check it out:
