Hey, I'm new to this but I have been taking pictures a lot lately and I always see the fisheye pictures and I really like the look. I am planning on buying a new digital camera soon. Right now I have a Canon PowerShot S100. I want to buy a digital camera similar to this. Do they make a fisheye effect for a similar camera. I like the compact size. If they don't make a camera with this feature are there any programs that can do this to the picture after it is taken?

Thanks,
Eric

there are fisheye attachments for various cameras, usually for sale on ebay. The add on lens will degrade the image quality though.

Just to make sure you're aware of it, fisheye-style distortion is easy to add to an image in software and is a lot more adjustable that way than with a lens. Of course, you can't get the field of view without stitching a few images together, but if you are just after the "look," software will give you that. FWIW.
