This little Pal M4 is very, very capable, in the right hands of course. I am quite enjoying it! As I mentioned before I have a little wide angle lens with it, here's to show you how little extra the wide angle offers. I have yet to determine exactly "how wide" it is, no literature on it that I can find at this time. I guess its around 35mm wide equivalent from the cameras native 45mm.

Focussing with this distance only business, isnt to bad, I am using the feet scale, since for all the years I shot at Butlins, 5ft was kind of our average distance shot for the portraiture. Since the dark DARK venues we used to shoot in made it impossible to manual focus every shot I practiced a technique where I would coax the people into the shot by tapping there shoulder and taking a calculated step backwards, this almost always meant I was 5ft away....now I kinda work in 5ft stages!! Weird technique, but it worked!
