X100V Sports Finder & Digital Tele-Converter

Recommended Posts

Sports Finder crops the display by 1.25x, "reducing the picture by an amount equivalent to increasing lens focal length by 1.25x" ... says the user manual. I assume this means the 23mm lens effectively becomes 34.5mm (in full frame 35mm format). The Digital Tele-Converter on the other hand gives an equivalent to either 50mm or 70mm. Is Sports Finder therefore just another digital tele-converter, or is it doing something else entirely?

They may end up with a similar results but they serve two different purposes. The sports finder allows the shooter to see what is outside the frame so they can anticipate action within the frame. The digital converter on the other hand magnifies the image within the frame so the whole frame is filled.
