A Camera for Those Who Like to Take the Broad View

The wide-angle settings of the zoom lenses on most digital cameras are hardly wide at all - at least by the standards of film cameras. The widest lens available for a digital camera has been equivalent to 28 millimeters, which allows you to take in nearly 20 percent more of a scene than a 35-millimeter lens (the smaller the number, the wider the lens). But only a few cameras manage that, and going wider still has required mounting cumbersome lens converters on the camera.
