Hello all,

I have just purchased a schneider aspheric wide angle attachment for my beaulieu 4008 on which I had a schneider 6-66mm 1.8 lens mounted.

Have anyone had any experience with this lens attachment?

Do I need to compensate exposure?

How do I correctly focus with the attachment?

Has anyone had any soft edges/vignetting?

All comments, experience, suggestions are welcome!

Thanks a lot!

Jayne

I use the 67mm UWL III all the time (on a Nizo 6080) and I've never had any problems whatsoever.

I've never used one on a 4008 but I can't imagine there would be any problems in doing so.

Like most wide attachments you focus in on macro and then just about everything appears in focus through the lens. Light loss is minimal, so no need to compensate and I've not experienced any vignetting whatsoever.

Thanks for these replies!!!

Christopher, you rule! I have downloaded the manual for the UWIII at Super8 Arena (what a great resource).

Bill, thanks for all your quality replies, on this question and the lighting question.

All the best to you all,

Jayne
