5 mm lens for landscape filming

Post by simonsee » Mon May 06, 2002 12:39 am

Does anybody know of a camera with a 5mm zoom lens (or less) that costs around £100?

I ask because i saw some photographs taken with a 20mm SLR camera and really liked them, and 5mm would be the equivalent for super 8.

would a 6.5mm lens do?

what does everyone else use for wide angle landscape shots??

I understand you can get wide converter lenses but don't these squash the picture?

Choose the one that fits your lens... it´s in German but you´ll figure it out...
