Default A Bit of Fun.....

I picked up a Raynox 0.5x wide angle adapter very cheaply on EBay with the aim of selling it on, and just for fun I put it on my HS10. The first picture is the view at 24mm with the HS10, the second is with the Raynox fixed, giving an approximate 12mm equivalent.

So IQ is far from great but OK for a snapshot, and not bad for a less than 10 investment.... it's very poor at the edges but for small home use snapshots not bad....I bet I get some stick for this

Not too bad at all for what it is, Dave!

In fact I'm a bit surprised you could use it without having to zoom in. What model raynox is it? Thanks for sharing this

No stick! This is pretty nice. Thanks for sharing.

This is supposed to be fun. That's why I got the HS10

I thought I would too, but it is rather a big beast. It is an XL5000Pro and I think is designed for video cameras. There is a VERY small clipping in the corners that disappears with a very tiny zoom in, literally the slightest turn of the zoom. I might just keep this.

I got my Raynox 150 macro today and am very pleased with my initial shots, I cannot believe how close this gets, all I need now is my tripod back!
