Wide Angle Magnetic Camera Lens Review

Wide Angle Magnetic Camera Lens Review - I'll start off by saying, I'm no expert when it comes to cameras and lenses. I just knew that I wanted to be able to take wide angles of rooms and real estate. I also knew that I didn't want to buy another camera.

My camera is a Canon Powershot SD1100 IS Digital Elph. I like that it's little and can easily fit in my pocket. I also like that it's easy to use.

Late Friday afternoon I started doing a google search for wide angle magnetic lenses. I found a company called Adorama that sold them online. For those that don't know what a magnetic lens is, it's a lens that attaches with a magnetic ring to the metal lens on your camera. No fancy equipment required.

I took a chance and ordered the large lens. It was $29.95 and shipping was $5.00. It's Tuesday and it arrived this morning by UPS. I thought that was pretty quick considering it was the weekend.

I tried it out today and these are the results. I am standing in the exact same spot with both of the following pictures.

Here is the picture with the wide angle magnetic lens attached.

There is some fuzziness on the bottom right. If needed that could be cropped out and it would still give a wider shot that what I could get without the wide angle magnetic lens. I also tested it inside and was able to get a whole room in the picture. That is going to make real estate photos so much better. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my purchase.
