    Hello all,

    Can anyone help me with choosing a digital camera with wide angle lens
    (or converter). A friend of mine is looking for a compact that he could
    use to get the interior snapshots for his portfolio (interior design).
    I have searched thru google archive of this group but is there anything
    else than Canon A70 plus wide converter available?
    Currently I tend to propose the above but maybe there is a wiser choice
    at the same price level?

    Correct. The 5400 uses the same converters as the 5700, so it's the
    WC-E80 which get the 5400 down to 0.8 X 28mm = 22.4mm.

    Hi, I just started doing something similar recently -- shooting interior of
    I have tried two different compact digital cameras with wide angle
    attachment, a nikon 990 and a sony 707. There is noticeable barrel
    distortion with either of them. Fortunately, the distortion can be fixed in
    photoshop with a free plug-in "panatools".

    I suspect you would see barrel distortion on most wide angle attachments, so
    be prepared to use photoshop.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I have seen some samples on the net from wide
    angle and that was actually my second question how to adjust the images
