does anyone know where to get any kind of wide angle attachment for a super 8 camera? I own a Canon 518 Auto Zoom, but any super 8 wide angle/fisheye would do.
Canon made a wide angle converter for this camera. It's mentioned in the specifications shown at this link - My Webpage and these show up from time-to-time at eBay. It's possible other wide angle conversion lenses fitting the accessory thread on the lens will work as well. Step-up adapters could be used for conversion lenses having a larger thread diameter.
Let me amend my earlier post by saying that Canon made wide angle converters for cameras introduced later. These converters may or may not fit your camera. Having said that, aftermarket converters of varying sizes and magnifications are available. Again, eBay is a good souce.

Or will my light meter automatically detect any changes with the new lens?
