Century Optics .55x Wide Angle Adapter 58mm Thread for Canon GL-1/GL-2 & Sony TRV900 / PD-100 & Panasonic AGE-Z1U & Other Cameras -
The Digital Series.55X Reversible Wide Angle Adapter is the first dual purpose lens accessory. When attached to the lens front in one direction, the.55X performs like Century's other high-quality wide angle adapter offering a significantly wider angle of view with minimal distortion. Used with the Sony VX-2000, the.55X provides a horizontal viewing angle of 73° (93° measured diagonally).
When you want to go wow-em wide with a fisheye effect, simply remove the.55X optical element, flip it around, and thread it on the other way: Voila! It becomes a fisheye adapter. Oriented this way, the.55X provides a wider angle of view with pronounced barrel distortion. When used as a fisheye adapter on the Sony DCR VX-2000, the 55X offers a horizontal viewing angle of 92° and a diagonal viewing angle of 115°.
