Where'd you're sense of humour go Ben? Or does holga make a metaphysical lens that bends light without using optics...pinhole not included

That lens deserves to be mounted on the K20, it can only reach it's potential on the K20.

Are you talking about a gravity lens? Such a lens would be a marvel to behold. Impossible to use on Earth because of the gravity, but it would be a marvel nonetheless!

I have discovered a great and utterly horrible tilt shift function. When the lens is mounted via the body cap, unscrew the lens from the body cap housing. Tilt the lens while looking through the viewfinder. Press the shutter when the desired effect (horribly bad photo) is at its' maximum repugnance. You get horrible light bleed, tons of CA and only the center in focus. It is utterly awful.

My tutorial of the day.
