Question Distortion effect?

I love the angle and look on this picture! Was this a special lens used or was this post edit?

Re: Distortion effect?

hmmm it depends the camera, the lens...so many wide angle models.
With full frame sensors, any 20mm lens can create perfectly that distortion.
with an APS sensor, between 10-17mm.

some lenses wide angle with distortion:

peleng 8mm
tamron 17-50mm
canon 10-22mm
canon 14mm
sigma 10-20mm
tokina 11-16mm
nikon 14-50mm
...

Re: Distortion effect?

I actually have a wide angled lens but never used it! Its a 58mm wide angle lens and I think it just screws onto your regular lens! Wonder if that would work...

58mm wide angle??
wide angle doesn't mean always distortion Jennifer.
for example, i had a 40D Canon with a 17-85mm lens and there wasn't distortion, cause the APS sensors only are using the central frame from the lenses.

and now, with a 5D Full Frame sensor, a 20-35mm lens creates a great distortion without vignetting.

talk about your cam model and we can search a distortion lens for it.

Re: Distortion effect?

im confused 'bout 58 wide angle. 35mm is normal. anything below that is considered wide angle if i remember correctly.

maybe 58 is part of the range.
if not i'm with d00dle, 58 is not a wide angle focal

oh...ok Jennifer i explain you.

This is not a lens, it's an adapter.
That 58mm indication is not the adapter's angle, it's the ring's size indication.

you can use it on lenses with a 58mm diameter.
and i had one years ago, and i don't recommend you this kind of adapters. are totally blurred, quit quality to the lenses and the weight should be bad with zoom lenses. you can brake the zoom running.

and for the pics...you can play with filter/distort/lens correction.
the filter has beside the lens distortion tool, some vignetting parameters you can add to the image.
