    Default How to avoid or reduce Barrel distortion?

    my F707 have these Cons...

    Bad lens distortion with wide angle macros
    Barrel distortion at wide angle

    it is very irritating esp when i take macro shots of hardware for review, the motherboard instead of rectangular, it will be curved on the 4 side....

    very ugly and i dunno how to make it straight...

    2 points to note:
    1) dun use wide angle to shoot macros -> that's how u get obvious barrel distortion with ANY wide angle lens
    2) shoot at a longer focal length with a closeup filter
