I just got an optical assembly which I can put in front of an existing
camera lens to make the image fu*ked up like toy cameras. This optics
is given a decent product name but I won't call it by its name because
it's very crappy for its intended application. This is very nice,
however, because I can put it on a digicam to take Halloween party
pictures, on a 35mm SLR to burn a film with silly things, and on a MF
camera for somewhat more serious work.

I jsut got this and didn't figure out the best way to work with it.
But here are some examples I just took on my desk:

I can adjust the degree of blur and distortion by changing the
aperture of the main lens as well as the axis of mounting this optic
in front of a regular lens. This "toy adapter" doesn't have any
controllable dial.
