View Full Version : lens conversion question...

after speaking with the canon rep, and understanding that a 50mm becomes an 85mm, and knowing that you will need at least 15mm for wide angle as it will now shoot at 24mm, is it safe to say that shooting with super wide angle or fish eye lens would be impossible with the d60? or any non-full frame digital slr? also, when asked about printer quality, the CANON rep said the best photo printer out there was the epson! I thought it took a lot of honesty on his part to recommend the competition.. How do you current d60 owneres shoot wide angle shots??

The digital sensors don't really increase the focal length of your lenses. In actuality, due to the size of the sensor,the edges of the light fall outside the sensor area and is "cropped" out of the image when compared to a full-frame 35mm image. This is analogous to the APS cameras that don't really make "panoramic" images.<BR>
Therefore, a 15mm lens on the D60 has the<BR>
"coverage" of a 24mm on a 35mm film body.(15X1.6=24)<BR>
Other than distotion factors, there should not be<BR>
any reason that the super-wides and fisheye lenses could not be used with the D60.<BR>
Yes, but you will have an effective angle of view of a 22mm lens and in the case of a fisheye lens you will also have the fisheye effect of uncorrected distortion (14mm * 1.6).<BR>
No extrem angles with digital cameras that employ 35mm camera bodies and have a sensor that is smaller than the format.
