Just bought a HV40 tonight and i am super pumped, cant wait to start making some legit stuff. So i am new to all the lenses and such, so if you could talk to me real stupid about UV lenses and Wide angles. I want to get a wide angle, but not super distorted, one that can capture a skier without bending him. Also what is this talk of UV lenses? I searchbarred and read in some other forums, but it was all too complicated. Thanks in advance!
Park skiing allows skiers to enjoy skiing without good snow and terrain. It is better to be a park skier then to not a skier at all. Most of these kids would be shredding powder if they could be. ~nomensteven
basically uv filters just protect the lens in your camera. its recomended that you put one on right when you get the camera and and never take it off. its cheaper to replace a scratch uv filter than the lens in your camera.
I wonder what the reasonable to worthless post ratio is?
I have this wide angle for my hv30 and its really nice. $140 on amazon.
youll need a step up ring but thats no big deal. my only complaint is at 0.66x it could be a little wider for some of the close follow cams.
