I just bought some new lenses for my Canon 400D to extend the reach and creative possibilities. So, I decided to go through a couple of possibilities when it comes to optics.
First out is my old Sony DSC-P150. It has a 3 x zoom and years ago I extended the possibilities by adding two small extra lenses from Cokin. Not very high quality optics, but better than expected and, in good conditions, quite acceptable.
You use them by adding a small metal ring on the camera. The lenses have powerful magnets at one end. That way you can snap them easily on and off.
Here are a couple of test shots taken in very bad conditions through my famous living room window.
In my next post I will show you another way to extend the reach: buy another camera. The Canon S2 IS. A compact with so called super zoom. Then, I’ll show you what the new lenses for my 400D can do…
