Default Wide Angle Lens HELP!

I've Been Looking for a wide angle lens for a 37mm digital handicam,
I'm kind of new to film and photography. Most of the .45x lenses I've
looked at are fisheye lenses, are all .45x lenses fisheye ? or are
they diffrent from just normal .45x wide angle lenses. Also Is the
lower the number (.45x) the wider the picture or do I want one with
the highest number (.6x)?Also at what point has the least amount
of noticable distortion.

And rec.photo.digital couldn't help? This group is full of stodgy
old-timers still using film cameras and wet darkrooms.

"still using film cameras and wet darkrooms"

Is there some other way of making fine photos? (-:

What are the odds you would find a film photographer in a group with
"darkroom" in the name? Who knew? By the way, I just was out playing with
a Horizon 202 - a 120 degree wide angle view of the world. Almost must be
tripod mounted, has a bubble level, no light meter or automation. Uses more
than a full frame of 35mm - about 23 exposures to a 36 exposure roll.
Results are surprisingly good. To bad it isn't digital.
