what do i need to look for when searching for a competible lens for my camera? in particular, I'm looking for lens that keeps everything on focus (wide angle lens??)

Super 8mm BAUER S 2035 XL -- this is the camera i just bought.

Not sure if I understand, but are you looking for a wide angle adapter to screw onto the front of your camera? If you're just looking to shoot handheld and want everything in focus, keep the lens at the 8mm range and set focus to 2m or 6 feet and keep your subject at least a yard or a metre and a half or so away from the lens and keep the f-stop at f2.8 or better (f4 is better) and all will be certainly in focus beyond a 1.5 metre distance, if not 1 metre. If you have a manual they should have similar directions.

If you want a screw on wide angle adapter to go below 8mm, then more specs about your camera are needed. What is the lens thread size, and does it have macro focusing capabilities?

thank you for the info. I'm looking for way to keep things in focus, don't neccessary need add on lens. I'll definetly try what you said.

I do have a manual but it's in German so that's rubbish.

I think it does have macro capability but i'm not too sure.
