Hi if you go to www.lensmateonline.com who make adapters for the S1 you will find a page with examples of the wide angle lenses including the raynor one .also on dpreview.com canonforum if you search for threads by Tom Hoots he has posted a large number of exampleswith both tele and wide lens.

hope I have been of help Brendon

Hi,

I have the adapter from lensmate. At first I wasn't sure since it does make the camera a little bigger but now that I have gotten used to it, I love the ability to add the polarizing filter in bright sun.

I've already checked Lensmate. I like the lens tests for the S1 but I still like to see "None-profit" photographers pics. They I'll show me how an amateur, a semi-pro or a pro handles the camera when the lens is on.:|



So I'm basicly searching for some test photos of the wide angle lens, the macro and tele lens.
I'll take a look at dpreview.:idea:

I have the lensmate attachment and have used both wide angle lenses and closeup lenses with it; works fine for me : the wide angle lens is a Kenko 0.42X; produces a little vignetting (dark areas at the corners), easily corrected by zooming in a little (makes it 0.5X, =19mm at 35mm standards); wide angle pictures attached here; macro in the next messages

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Wide angle pictures (resized only):

Would like to add the following comments:

Suggest you use stitch-assist rather than wide angle lens: gives you a larger picture and less distortion; have compared the two and definitely prefer the panoramas made by the camera with stitch-assist; also saves you carrying additional equipment;

one great advantage of the S1 is this ability to do stitch and to zoom all the way to 32X (including the 3.2X digital zoom); the 32X pictures are much better than those made by many budget 2 or 3X teleconverters;

macro of course is possible down to 4cms from the front of the lens in wide-angle

Cheers!!
