- Apr 29, 2014Michel,
Surprisingly good results - better than I would have expected. Still, is
this really something you would want to shoot with on a regular basis?
Thanks for the proof of concept though!

Subject: [PanoToolsNG] Test of Nikon FC-E8 (on a modern Canon camera)
Discussion occurred on some recent threads of this list about the IQ that
could possibly be expected nowadays from the FC-E8 on a modern camera.
I had adapted the Nikon fisheye converter (x 0.21) in front of the EF-S
18-55 mm (Mk 1)! This zoom lens had been delivered as a kit together with
the EOS 300D Rebel. After some tests, this "Chimeron" lens combo was shelved
a decade ago.
Today I cleaned it and mounted the Chimeron set at 33 mm and f/13 on a Canon
EOS 650D. I shot four images to yield this panorama:
Some more dusting off would probably help a bit...
