MHG07A wide lens, cd300, best settings?

I just got the high grade wide angle lens for cd300 and want to hear from those who have this lens and camera. Should I just set to macro mode or use the dedicated "conversion" lens or whatever setting in setup. I notice you can't go lower than f4 when using the setup mode. Also, is camera flash totally useless now with the big lens?

I don't have that camera, but try Macro mode instead of Conversions Lens in setup. If the camera focuses (at Wide setting), then you should be able to get down into the wider apertures.

Canon Rebel camera wideangle lens settings?


That depends on what you're taking a picture of. The best setting for a landscape picture won't necessarily be the best setting for a group portrait. You might want to use different settings for a daytime landscape than for a sunset. That's why the camera offers different settings. The camera is a tool. You're the photographer.

How do i set wide angle on my nikon d3100


You don't "set wide angle." Wide angle is not a function of your camera, it is dependent on the lens you use on your camera. You need a lens with a low focal length such as 24 mm.

How to connect vivitar wide angle lens and telephoto to canon t2i


make sure the vivtar lens is "58mm" diameter (shoutstate this near the fron of the vivtar lens) then it should be a question of screwing the lens on top of the other lens. not the best way of getting wide angle shots as the 18-55 is pretty soft in focusing already and adding another inferior lens will make it look poor. if you don't want to buy a lens i would suggest investing in a tripod and take multiple shots with the 18-55 and stitch them together with a photo editing tool like photoshop

Wide angle cap vs wide angle lens


The cap is a plastic disk, usually black or silver, that snaps on at the end of the lens to keep the lens clean. Some lenses have two caps, one for each end when not attached to the camera.
Some cameras don't use a "loose" cap; those cameras generally retract the lens into the camera body and "close" a door in front of the lens.
Many, if not most, camera users do not use a cap (my guess).

The wide angle lens is generally an "optional" lens that can be used for group or scenery pictures when you want to shoot a "wide" picture. A "normal" lens is generally around 50mm (plus / minus 5mm). A wide lens is anywhere from 17mm to 24mm (or so).

I recommend obtaining a wide lens... with a cap.

Hope this helps!

Looking for a wide angle lens converter for a S31S


They make some cheesy mount lenses that clip on the front of your camera. But if you ask me they are not worth the money. I needed to take wide angle shots at work and ended up having to upgrade to a SLR grade camera. Go to any electronics store or camera store and they will demonstrate what I am talknig about.

I want to add lens to my fujifilm s5600 to take better pics


There are lenses available to add with an adapter ring. I have the wide angle lens (which I LOVE) and a 2x telephoto lens. The wide angle lens allows me to macro from several feet away. It is an amazing lens. The telephoto lens is something you really need to use with a tripod. But yes, there are lenses you can add to your camera.

Lens


Have you ever heard the expression "Good, Fast, Cheap ...pick any two" ? Well, it's that situation. The kit lens is cheap, and it has a good zoom range (including wide-angle) but it's not very high quality. The best lens for you is probably the 17-55 EF-S -but it is $1000. It is a great lens, and it's efficient and light sensitive, along with image stabilization. Without knowing your budget, I would also recommend the 28-135 EF IS, but it doesn't cover the wide angle range. That one is $400. There's also the 17-85mm, which also has Image Stabization. That one is about $500.

Wide Angle Lenses


wide angle lens aka fish-eye lens, means only the centre of your photo is clearly focused - especially in long distance scenery shots.
