Wide Angle Lens Followup

In a previous post I showed you some land photos of housing mods and a wide angle lens that I got for my HD video camera. For a refresher I am using a Sony HDR SR11 Camera with Raynox High Deffinition (.5) conversion lens in a Clear Cam housing.

Here are two frame grabs from two dives I did recently. One without the WAL and one with it.

I am impressed by the difference in viewable area. Both frames are with the camera at a fixed distance (the length of my arms). One in natural light and the other inside a wreck with a Salvo 21W HID rigged to an arm off of the housing. Yes I am grinning like an idiot in photo2 🙂

 

Cheers.
