    For non-serious shots, would I be able to attach a 0.42x or 0.5x wide-angle
    lens, usually used for video cameras, to a digital SLR?

    It would affect image quality, but that's ok as it's not for serious shots.
    Unless it really stuffs up the image...

    Would one with a 46mm thread cause vignetting? Keeping in mind that the sensor
    is smaller...


    thanks

  2. You get wierd fisheye effects with lots of vignetting (usually)

    Sure, but do you have an SLR lens with a 46mm thread? Better look for a wide
    angle with a 52mm thread so you do not need to use a step down ring.

    hrm, what about at 0.7x? 31mm shouldn't be too bad i suppose?

    The SLR's 58mm, but I was hoping to just put on the wide angle lens from my
    video camera, whose wide angle lens is 46mm. I'd need a step-down ring of
    course.. am just worried about vignetting from that.



    thanks
