    I searched the forum and found some topics but I can't seem to exactly understand these things...

    I have a Sony DSC-H2 camera. It's focal length is 36-432 (35mm equivalent).
    I am thinking of buying a wide angle conversion lens (or even fish-eye conversion) and now comes the problem...

    The conversion lens I saw and am thinking of buying has 0.43x magnifying.
    Ok...so that means that when my camera is in 36mm focal length if i attach the conversion lens the focal length will be 15.48mm? (36 x 0.43 = 15.48)
    Or are there any other things I should take into consideration?

    I really hope you can answer this for me :D
    Thanks.
    George.

    Yeah its your lens in mm x the# on the adapter/converter lens.

    I have a kodak dx6490 with 38mm lens and bought the .42x fisheye add on lens.
    so it makes it like 16mm

    Heres a pic showing the changes it will give you

    i took a pic without the lens, then not moving put the lens on and took another
    then overlayed them in photoshop
