  • howdy folks! Anyone rate any of the wide angle converters for video?

    Howdy all.

    Trust you are all well.

    Um.....I have the G6 with a 12-35mm lens with variable ND filter. Looking at doing some wilderness video work.

    I am looking at a wide angle converter maybe eg. raynox. anyone had much success with these on video with being good quality?

    Would it be silly/ too much to attach the ND filter on top of the wide angle?

    Any thoughts or feedback would be ace...

    Cheers!

    I've used a SpeedBooster and knock off with wide lens.
    If there is enough light, I prefer one of the 7-14 lens.

      Thanks Roger :-)

      ok - good to know. I have looked at speedbooster (faster lens, wider aperture right?) but cant afford as yet....

      I was considering the 7-14mm but need more zoom....so using the 12-35mm with 0.45x occassional wide angle lens shots. good lens - no/ minimal fish eye & good image.....

        I also have tried several wide angle converters.
        They all had considerable distortion similar to a FishEye lens.
        No matter what you put on the end of your 12-35 including filters, there is going to be some degradation.

        As for the Lumix 7-14, I've use two copies once each.You could buy mine for $750.
        If I need something that wide, I use the vastly superior 14-24 Nikkor on a FullFrame camera. I also have Sigma 4.5 & 8 mm FishEye lens for use at the Monterey Aquarium.

        Or, you could just stitch several shots with software.
