These are the pict from a manual Zenitar 16 mm (in film and full frame without the crop factor). I am not too happy with the low resolution (1500x1200 only) from a local drug store. I am cheapie as the film costs me $2 a roll (still unexpired) from a Camera show and $3 for a CD without print. My home scanner can probably jack it up to around 3000x2000 from the negative. It is not the max the lens can offer. I need to explore if the Reala film is better than the regular ones.
Tom said I should be blown away with its dynamic range. I cannot see it yet given the low resolution. I am getting there.
It costs litte. The lens is Can$150 (all incl) and the camera is close to zero value (or Can$60 at ebay)




This building has always been an interesting one in downtown Toronto




















Toronto Hockey Hall of Fame










I post that before in this forum on those buildings. But those were of 1.5 crop factor – really no that wide or wild.

Whatever the limitations in resolution etc you really sqeeze the most out of that lens. Really fascinating pictures, makes you see old things in a new way.

Cool shots! You've got this down so well, it makes me want to get a super-wide angle lens, just to play with it.

Kinda makes me want a 10mm, so I can get the same effect with the K100.

Thanks you guys for looking. I am just trying to see if I like the FoV.

Tim,

No harm done even if you put your kit lens in a K film camera to see the view. Sure its non-core resolution may not be good. Use only the core before you spend money on a 10mm lens which is $$$ . It is fun yes. After a little while I am not surprised that you get tired of the curve.

That was the last pict I took of the film. I took that with my A300mm . Pict resized .
Or it is only 200mm on a digital using 300mm. I get confused now
