new camera for Nikon FC-E8 Fisheye
- For my mushroom "macro" photography I'm still using my old coolpix 995. But I'd like to get some more resolution than the 3.34 mp.
First I was thinking about getting a 60mm micro nikkor for my D70. But then again that would mean I had to lay down in the dirt to look through the viewfinder - and (allthough I know I won't get the same picture quality with the smaller ccd) I can get a brand new 6-8 mp compact with swivel-screen/body for the same price.
I've been searching the market to see if it could be possible to find one where I could fit the FC-E8 Fisheye on, so I also can use the new camera for my "FungOrama"-shots (www.in2.dk/svpan/) - But I can't find any.
The new Nikon Coolpix S10 6mp might be the answer - anyone seen it for real and know if there is a lensthread underneath the square lensfront?
Or anyone know of any other (brand) compact camera that will take the FC-E8 Fisheye?

Nikon coolpix 5000 5mp slow and complicated but last supported
coolpix. Flip screen but doubt you would really see much quality
Canon a95 5mp no autobracketing or advanced features but nice small
compact 5mp camera, ask luc vascon for thoughts.
Nikon coolpix 8400 8mp works with the right nikon adaptor tube.
Unsuported but the best quality you will get. But they still sell
second hand for a fair bit, but probably the best quality you can get
out of a fc-e8
I understood the fc-e9 fisheye came out in order to cover the larger
sensors of newer cameras so I assume the fc-e8 can't work with most
newer cameras, even if they have mounting threads, severe vignetting
and such but I could be wrong. The 8400 presumably being an unusual

I've been looking online for info about other camera's that will fit
my fc-e8 lens but never found that info.
What tube do you need to use it? And what do you mean with

995's still go for around a hundred euros on ebay so you could trade
up but then you wouldn't have a small camera any more.
I notice right angle viewers like
around. Perhaps you could use something similar with you d70 and
peleng for low down shots?
