No offense but why would anyone buy that when they can just get something like this if they want fisheye effect (with a better camera as well):

@ Baobinga Girl, get the sand out your fanny. Who walks around with that? no one. you slap it on when you wanna take a pic. then put it away. What I meant was the tech savvy people these days wouldn't buy something like that I reckon, why get a poor quality photo when you can get a better one using something like that adapter (if you must have a fisheye effect)? It looks like something you pick up in those market stalls or get free on a magazine. Everyone carrys a iphone, so can see the sense in the iPhone adapter idea but this no, sorry. Tell me I'm wrong in a year when it's a roaring success and people realise they can't live without a nano camera in their pocket.

sometimes you need a camera. my camera is a bit like a gopro but £65. also has a time lapse feature, 12mp (although the photos up there were taken at 5mp) and HD video.

Also doesn't have a screen on the back so when you 'develop' the camera (plug it in) you still get the surprise of finding out what you managed to capture, a bit like shooting with film. that was the idea anyway.

Its just a fun little thing really.

Sorry I didn't mean to come across as negative Smiling , you got an idea and you rolled with it, clearly some people like it but just saying it doesn't appeal to me personally that's all and I saw something similar (if not identical) years ago in hong kong. Good luck with it mate.

Just bought a D7000, well pleased with it so far.
Still getting used to it, low light performance is astonishing compared to my D200.

Great choice, the D7000 is great, since the new one is out prices have dropped massively, If you have bought used with limited warranty, then just get a 3rd party grip for it instead of the MB-D15 nikon version, you can get one on ebay for around £50 rather than nearly £285, then you are really motorting.

technology on focus points, ISO performance, low light focusing and dynamic range has moved on light years compared to the D200

This looks great for a beginner, virtual DSLR to play around with camera settings and see what they do:
