Wide angle on Canon 300D (Rebel Digital)

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Miguel Del Rio, Oct 17, 2003.

  1. Hello, I need help.
    I bought a Canon 300 D (Rebel Digital) and I would like to make wide angle
    pictures. If 18-55 mm corresponds with 28-88 mm, which objective do I need
    to take this pictures without using a fish eye?. 14 mm is to expensive for
    me. 15 mm also, but I could do it if it is much different than the 18 I have
    o my zoom objective. Does anybody know an alternativ, like an accesory or
    any other trade mark?.

    Thank you,

  2. By far the cheapest way is to take multiple images and then use Panorama
    Tools to stitch them back together, but this doesn't work too well for
    moving objects.

    primes are always expensive. look into 3rd party wide zooms, like sigma
    15-30 ex.

    (In 35mm terms) 28mm is already moderately wide-angle. The perspective
    foreshortening already verges on severe.

    Not sure what "this picture without using a fish eye" means, but you can get
    fish-eye adpaters that screw onto the filter ring. There are also
    specialized panorama mirror attachments.

    Should have bought a Nikon D100 with the 12-24mm DX lens, thats the most
    realistic/affordable way of getting wide angle from a normal DSLR at the

    The crop factor of the 12-24mm DX on a D100 nets an effective 18mm.. That's
    pretty wide. It's definitely practical, but it depends what you call
    affordable. The Nikon 12-24mm lists at around $1000.00 US :)

    I've heard Canon will be releasing a similar lens..
