1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    should be 16mm from lens to sensor, or film. i think... don't stress, sure it will be fine. you'll know if its right when you get an image on the screen. if its too small, need longer lens.

    I have just tried a 12mm lense and found it gave a much better field of view so you may not stick with the 16mm one anyway.

    I have a 16mm one for sale cheap now if anyone is interested :eek:
