Previously, I showed the effects of using the Canon wide angle converter lens with my G9 indoors in a small room. Here’s a outdoor shot:
Without the wide angle converter, the scene looks like this:
Both shots were taken from a tripod with the G9 set for ISO 80 and manual exposure of 1/125 second at f4.5. Focus distance was manually set at infinity. These images are from the in-camera JPEG and downsized for display.
The purpose of this post was intended to be a comparison of the angle of view but, once again, that bright white fence is difficult to capture. Pixel peeping a bit, the fence is worse with the wide angle conversion lens as shown below.
The comparison above is the 1” x 1” section that would be printed at 300 dpi. That is, each crop contains 300 pixels and is shown here at 100% scale.
In fairness, I have to admit that every picture I’ve taken of that white fence using my G9 on a bright day shows chromatic aberration. Obviously, the wide angle converter makes the result even worse.
Although glad to have it, I haven’t used the wide angle converter as much as I thought but that doesn’t stop me from wanting an easily accessible 24mme lens.
