Default What is Conversion Lense in Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220 ?

Hi guys,

can you please explain it to me what does Conversion Lense do? It has 3 options:

Tele, Wide, Off (off course .. to turn the CL off)

But what are the benefits turning that on? I don't see much difference when I tried it.

Thank you so much!

A Conversion Lens is an additional lens that you can attach to your camera to alter the angle of view of the camera. Two types of Conversion lenses are available. One gives a wider angle of view, while the other provides more magnification of distant objects.

The settings in your W220 are so it can make the necessary adjustments to the way it operates so that it can support the conversion lens that's attached.

If you haven't attached a conversion lens, you should not change the Conversion Lens setting in your camera.
