Hey Webb, welcome to the Phoenix Area HD-100 owners club! I'm sure we've met at an AZSW meeting or somewhere like that.

I'm thinking there are more of us than HVX owners in these parts... must be something in the water. Have fun with that killer lens!

can you clarify? are you saying 16 or 35mm lenses won't go wider than the stock fuji lens? or do you mean not as wide as a 16 or 35mm lens on a film cam?

Hey Joel. Glad to see another Phoenician around here! I did go to the AZSA mixer late last year at the Half-Moon bar and grill. Perhaps we meet there. I was the one who helped produce the winning script from the screen challenge competition. (Shot that film on the XL2) Anyway, I hope to see you around.

Sticking a 16mm lens on the camera does not change the size of the image produced by the lens, the 1/3" imaging chips in the HD100 only "see" the very center portion of the 16mm or 35mm image produced by a film lens, causing an apparent magnification. A "super-wide" lens made for 16mm might only end up just as wide as the stock Fuji lens, which doesn't get very wide at all.

WOW! I didn't know we had so many phx locals here.. fabulous!

Hey fellas.. I'm shooting a feature this summer on the HD100. I don't anticipate any problems, but I'd like to get each of your info so if I have any problems with my camera while were shooting I have a few outlets for renting an emergency camera. I'd much rather rent from fellow starving filmmakers than from rental houses. Shoot me an email: webb@basslinedigital.com with your info and requested dayrate for your camera (if you do rent it out) Thanks!
