I believe it works the same way whether it is indoor or outdoors. Only reason to use indoor is to specially "stressed" on the wide view by the wide lenses, IMO.

With a Raynox .66x lens on the front of whatever you are shooting with, you can give the APS-C the same wide angle as FF. Assuming you can afford a slight loss of light.

Should this not be merged with the "Crop Factor, Focal Length and Field of View" article?
