Four Dirt Cheap Toy Camera Lenses You Should Try


Want to mix things up a bit, gear-wise, without breaking the bank? Photographer Mathieu Stern has an idea for you. In this short video he shares four cheap toy camera lenses that he thinks are worth your time.

The four lenses he recommends are the Fujian 35mm f/1.7, the pinhole lens (which you could actually DIY), the Holga 25mm f/8, and the Holga Fisheye. Each offers a very distinct look, and none of them will cost you more than about $30 US. The Fujian in particular is incredibly impressive for its price point.

Check out the video for a brief description of each lens and to see sample shots Mathieu captured with each.
