1. using the anamorphic adapter and viewing the footage directly on a 4:3 tv will result in a squeezed picture.

2. i don't know about premiere specifically, but if you mark the MPEG stream as being anamorphic (check if premiere's MPEG encoder has that capability), then a standard DVD player will convert it to 4:3 by shrinking the image and putting black bars on the top and bottom. if the MPEG stream is not marked as being anamorphic, then it will apear squished on a 4:3 tv.

The adapter does not add black bars. All it does is optically squish the picture with a wider field of view.

The camera doesn't even know that the adapter is installed. There are no electronics or anything in the adapter so the camera doesn't know the difference.

You might have screwed it on too tight and damaged the threads, or you just screwed it on too tight. Try using a little bit of force, but not too much, or try putting a cold pack on the adaptor for about 5 minutes, then try it. If those don't work, take the cam to a repair shop.

Erik, does it seem as though the lens is spinning on the threads? i had this happin to me in a camera store and even the guy behind the counter couldnt get it off. anyway, if thats what its doing, u need to tighten the screw just a bit, and twist the back threads off. the problem happines because the lens has 2 sets of threads one to attach to the camera and one to line it up. hope that helps some...

i figured out how to fix the "external dv disconnect problem" so disreguard that last post. but i would still like to know how much you think it will be to repair the threading on the lens.

No idea. Why don't you call a repair shop and ask? That's what I would do.

Thanks Ken for your concern.

But no one seems to have used the 16:9 converter. There were lot of talk. But no real information about it. Atleast I could not even find out whether the converter covers the entire focal length range or not.

There's volumes written about it on this site and adamwilt.com. In short, yes it covers the full focal range, although it's tough to get it in focus at maximum zoom. It provides a much higher resolution picture, but only if you take care to administer it properly, meaning: bring along a high-res CRT field monitor, and keep the f-stop in line with the zoom setting to deliver maximum sharpness. Adam Wilt created a chart that shows what the maximum opening is, relative to the zoom setting, to insure maximum sharpness.
