Sony CX150 Lens with Canon 10-22mm?? Can't Post

Hello all,

Which lens should I put on my Sony CX150 to compliment the Canon 10-22mm? The 10-22mm is on a Canon t3i. Both are top mounted on a FTP. I have the GoPro 3D housing mounted on the front of the helmet but it only sticks out approximately 2 inches. Tandems from a 182.

Blue Skies,
August

Depends on how zoomed you have the 10-22. At 10MM, I would think you would need something close to fisheye (.3ish?), and at 22 you would probably be pretty close to a .5 or so). I haven't tested this out, just a guess.

Keep in mind that the stills and video will never match exactly because of different aspect ratios. When I can, I prefer to use a wider still lens. 1st because you can always crop it, secondly, if a hand or foot goes out of frame for a few frames on video it is no big deal, but I usually wouldn't want that on a still image.

Raynox 0.5 or 0.3 are good video choices for tandem to complement a Canon 10-22 still lens. Which one depends somewhat on your flying style & typical exit configuration, but either will work.

An Xti with a sigma 15mm, matches very well with a Century .5 HD lens

How well does a Opteka .3 compare to a Raynox .3?

I have both..

The Opteka can capture more vertical area than the Raynox, which means there's less chance that a tandem might go partially out of frame. For that same reason, the tandem will appear a little bit smaller through the opteka. The image quality is ok. I also have the century baby death, and I don't really notice much difference between it and the opteka.

The Raynox I have is .3x, but it's only a semi fisheye. Although the tandem is more likely to go partially out of frame if you are not careful where the camera is pointing compared to the Opteka, I find the video comes out with better sharpness and color.

In my case, I usually jump the Opteka since I end up doing alot of freeflying.

The opteka is much wider and more fisheye-y than the raynox .3

For most people I think the opteka .3 is (way) too wide for tandems or outside video. For inside video work its great.

I sold my opteka .3 and raynox .5, I now only jump the raynox .3 for everything (tandem, wingsuit, FS4, FS coaching etc). One size fits most Angelic

I've had really good luck with the Century .5

Nice clear video and it's very low profile.
