Thread: use of wide lens

  1. #1

    Question use of wide lens

    I am currently using a canon A80 and i just purchased a wide lens 0.5 wide from vitacon but i find that i can't take a proper night shot with the lens blocking my flashlight. Now even the adaptor is blocking it too. i tried using slower shuttle speed (15"") and smaller aperture (f2.8) and set iso to 50 but if i am taking a person, how do i set? i can't expect that person to stand still for 15 secs, do i? duhz can any1 tell me how to solve this prob in a cheap way without buying add flashlight?

    Thats the problem with the adapters. If you have a ceiling try making a card to bounce the flash up. Thats a thread here teaching how to make one, try looking for it.

    Hi Donald,

    Maybe you can try setting the ISO to 400 instead of 50. Then your subjects need only stand still for 1-2 secs instead of 15 secs. You may end up with a slightly noisier image though, as a trade-off.

    Cheers,
    Adrian.

    Actually, I saw your post to sell your camera. Do not make sense to sell off something just because the wcon blocks your flash. Just remove it, best solution. What if you buy a 300D and feels it is lacking in wide angle? Sell it and get a 1Ds (selling now at abt $11K)?

    the only prob is that i can't sell off my A80 with the lens now. hahaha no buyers btw the canon 1Ds looks great, maybe i shld have bought that in the first place, kinda regret now wor

    Erm, just to clarify, that was not what...at least for me...I was thinking. Ability to buy the camera was not my point.

    If anybody needs me to explain what I was thinking, PM me and I'll give you a piece of my mind.
