    The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    With all the recent posts about people getting new WA lenses I thought it would be fun to start a thread dedicated to ultra WA images. Feel free to add your own wide angle images to this thread, and tell us what lens, and what focal length the image was taken at.

    This was taken last night at 12mm.

    Nice photo. Someday, I'll have to try star tracks.
    Here are three taken with the Tokina 12-24mm Tokina on a D200.

    Re: The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    Great idea for a thread.......I'll have to wait until next week when my Tokina 12-24 is delivered.

    Seeing these nice shots makes me look forward even more to using this lens!

    Thanks for posting - great shots.

    I haven't had the chance to really take my Sigma 10-20mm out much, but this is what I have so far. I've posted some of these in the critique section as well.

    Thanks.

    This image is actually 5 shots put together to make one. I used four 20 minute exposures to get the trails. Then I used about a 1 minute exposure and a 2 million candle power spotlight to paint in the FG for the 5th exposure. All shots were taken at f/8 and ISO 200. (I should have opened up a little more.) I didn't see the moon at all last night, so I may have been able to get this all in one single exposure. I was hoping for another clear night tonight, but no luck.

    I often wondered how you'd be able to expose for so long without the light completely overwhelming it. I never thought about combining exposures. The spotlight effect really makes the shot stand out as well. Good call.

    I think I'm going to try a lot of this when the weather warms up and stays clear. :thumbsup:

    Re: The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    Well, I just ordered the Tokina 12-24 from Normancamera.com. I've ordered quite of bit of my photo equipment from them. They are reputable, been in business for years - and the customer service is great. Besides, the price was $489 $10 less than other places) and no tax (I live in NJ - they are in Michigan). I'll get it Wednesday! It shipped within 30 minutes after I ordered it.

    Re: The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    I'd say anywhere less than 30mm or so can be considered wide angle..

    Oh, OK, because the widest I have is 16mm.
    I really do not do much where I need wider than that.

    Re: The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    I consider a Ultra Wide Angle any lens that is 35mm Film equivalent of less than 24mm. That is the 17mm lens on my D70 is a 25.5mm equivalent just a wide angle. Unluckily the Nikon DX lenses will not cover a full frame sensor

    Re: The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    In the old days, wide-angle for a 35mm film camera was anything less than what was considered the normal lens, which was the 50mm. This was based on the diagonal of the image area (approx. 44mm), then rounded to the next sized standard lens (50mm). Therefore, anything less than 50mm was considered wide-angle. Now, with digital I would guess it was the same for the FX format; but not for the DX format.

    Guessing off the top of my head, I believe it would be around 28mm for a standard on a DX; therefore, anything under 28mm would be considered wide-angle. As to what is a Ultra wide-angle, that is anyone’s guess, and is probably too subjective to really answer.

    Re: The Ultra Wide Angle Thread

    When I started this thread I was going to put in a mm limit for ultra wide, but figured it was too subjective. My personal view is that 24mm is a pretty standard wide angle lens on a 35mm format camera. So I consider anything wider than 24mm on a 35mm format camera to be "ultra wide".

    The other "rule" I was going to add was to keep this thread for single frame images. What I mean by that is no stitched panos.
