Ambico .42x Semi-fisheye 46mm lens

I have posted pictures and videos taken with the Ambico .42x lens in the Gallery on my website. This lens can be found new at a low price. I bought this one at a pawn shop for $24 in the box. It is a native 46mm lens but comes with stepup rings for 49mm and 52mm. I bought a 43-46mm stepup ring from B&H for $3 used.

Ok, you now have an album and I moved your pix into it. Both those pix are awesome! I would like to see some pro cinema widescreen mode video if you get a chance. You can put it in WMV or MOV just keep the file size under 10 meg. In Vegas, I encode my widescreen as 1/2 widescreen 436x240 to give a little more play time.

done! I have yet to get a tripod and fluid head, consequently it's a little on the unsteady side so view with that in mind.

Thanks, Tavis. Interesting look. Was there enough light to keep the camera in 60i @ 1/60 or does PS mode switch it to 30p (frame mode) and 1/30...or some other shutter speed.

Pro-cine mode switches it to 30p @1/60th and up. unfortunately the only way to get it to shoot lower than 1/60th is to turn on one of the smooth night modes where it drops the shutter speed to compensate for lack of light, but you have no control over it. When i have some better footage i'll drop it in and post here. Maybe i'll do a comparison of the different modes shooting the same subject with the same aperture/shutter settings.
