Truth about UWL attachments...
Posted 02 January 2009 - 04:53 PM
I recently came across an interesting article in an old smallformat issue (#3/2007) dealing with optical adapters.
I was a bit astonished to read such a sentence : In general, the Schneider UWL does not fuction with the 6 - 66 mm [...] and 6 - 70 mm zooms.
As a proud Beaulieu 4008 ZMII user, I have a 6-70 Schneider on which I wanted to adapt a UWL from Wittner but this article makes me doubt.
Could anyone reveal some truth about thoses adapters ?
Thanks for any help / advice / experiences...

Any examples of what to expect?

My lens is no 6-70mm but 6-66mm Schneider Optivaron with Macro slider so it should work perfectly as macro is compulsory to use the UWL lens.
Thanks Andy for your answer !
As you have the same lense (or seem to have it), could you tell us more about the UWL III : you can't zoom thru it (no problem) but what is the approximative focal length you get ?
All manuals / books seem to say a 7mm become 4mm even when they refer to the 6-66mm ... question is, does the UWL have an influence ONLY when the Schneider 6-66 is set to approx 7mm ? or does it work when it's full wide ?
If you have any footage to show us with & without UWL this would be great !
Seem that I found my new "must have stuff" for this new year ...
