That is, I guess, until I received the Lomography Fisheye No. 2 for Christmas.
Another 35mm camera, yes, but this time with a 170-degree wide-angle view, removable fisheye viewfinder, multiple and long exposure capabilities, and sweet fisheye barrel distortion. The prints this thing produces are fantastic.
I used a whole roll of film in one afternoon, because everything, everything, looks cooler in fisheye.
The Fisheyes will cost you anywhere from $40-$80 and come in MINI SIZES too (the minis are about the size of a credit card, take 110 film, and are absolutely undeniably the most adorable film cameras you've ever laid eyes on). Each camera comes with two booklets--one with inspirational pictures and unique shooting techniques, and one with instructions for how to use your camera best.
Don't forget to check out the Lomography contest happening right now at Paper Umbrella! Pop in to say hi, pick up your own camera, and enter your prints to win a prize from the shop! (Details on our Facebook page.)
