Lens: Canon Powershot Pro 90-IS

Sat Dec 01, 2001 2:45 pm

I intend to buy a Canon Powershot Pro 90-IS. The lens is 37-370mm.

370mm is great - but only 37mm. Are there any adapters available to go below 37mm?

The wide converter lens WC-DC58 converts the focal length by about 0.8x, and the 58mm Close-up lens 500D enables shooting as close as 13.4in (34cm) at the telephoto end.

Enjoy it!

I think there is about 3 wide angle lenses that will fit (although you might need some sort of lens adapter for the thread).

You will probably get the best results using the Canon WC-DC58 which gives an effective focal length of approx 30.4mm at the wide end, which is quite substantial in my opinion. I have not used it, however. Going with a 3rd party lens opens up the possibity of other problems. I expect that it will give a bit of distortion on the wide end, but that is one of the trade-offs with having the Pro90's 10x zoom. I think you will really enjoy the Pro90. Good luck!

I've got a Pro90, and although I am reasonably satisfied, there are some things which are quite irritating. The lag time between shots can be quite long, and under very bright conditions, purple fringing can be a bit of a problem, especially at max zoom. The wide angle is not very wide, but you can get a converter.
