View Full Version : S40 with wide angle fresnel or .65 fresnel

OK, so i have been reading up on homebrews and have a few quesions from the seasoned homebrewers.

It seems the wide angle fresnel is better suited for the slower cameras. I have the s40 with a fast mod so the wide angle fresnel should be very fast. Maybe too fast to catch a full bodied shot. I have it set on fast mode for multiple shots so I should eventually catch a full bodied shot but will it waste memory space. Is the .65 better suited for the S40 fast mod and say a wide angle for the P52 or P32?

Your thoughts?

The fast mod only saves about .5 second. Both fresnels will work fine, but I prefer the wide angle lens. The wide angle does seem to center the deer better.

Check out the high performance wide angle from Snapshotsniper. I use them in all my cams.
