        I use my Raynox QC-303 Semi-Fisheye Ultra Wideangle Lens on my Samsung sc-mx20 camcorder to film my sk8 videos. It has a great fisheye look and it's easy to put on. The downside of the lens is that it gets dirty really fast. And if its not on right it will fall off.Overall it's a good buy! I recomend this to everyone who is looking for a good but still cheap fisheye lens!

        The lens physically fits well, though picture will not focus. Picture angle is wider, just totally out of focus all the time. The camera trys to auto focus but is always adjusting, indoors or outdoors. Only time in focus is in passing. Totally unusable together. Maybe better luck on another camera?

        I need to return this product.

        Other places on internet says these two work together -- they do NOT!

            Wanted to use it on my Olympus PL2 but it was not clear.
            It was fast to placed/removed to the Videocam. I like the adapter ring for non professional use.
            It is easy to carry around.

            But best you must check to what camera/videocam you intend to use with.

              I bought it for my son's Canon FS-300 and it would not stay on the front of the camera. Otherwise, a good fisheye for the price.

                    I have used this lens for tracking with a miniature CCV camera. This lens really snaps to anything. All you need to do is make sure the camera has a very close focus, the rest can be adjusted by slightly varying the distance between the camera's lens and this product. Also for other purposes, very good product for the money!

                    what ?! am I going to complain about the clarity of the glass? (it gets pretty blurry at the edges) but seriously, if you shot ANY action... it is really great to be able to spend a few dollars and throw some fish-eye flavor into your videos.

                    I used this lens for skateboarding and it was ok for a while. After about two weeks or so it started to get really dirty. I tried to clean it off and it would come right back. on top of that it kept falling off. I would skate and it would fall off sometimes and it has taken a lot of beating. i recommend a screw on lens, if you are into skateboarding footy. im getting one shortly.

                    Expertise: Hmmm....i like editing more

                    Problems Encountered: It would fall off easily, and get really dirty really fast, even after cleaning.

                    Comments about Raynox QC-303 0.3x Semi Fisheye Snap-On Lens:

                    I really liked this fisheye. I bout it for a JVC that Ihave, and it worked great. They only problem I had with itwas that it would fall off just randomly sometimes. I gotlucky most of the time, but I shoot skateboarding, so thiscamera and lens got some pretty good abuse. For the price,it works great. I really like it, and I suggest the but. It is really good for the small stuff, but if you arelooking for a 100% true fisheye, then I suggest gettingsomething a little more expensive, but this is great for abeginner, or if you just need that curved effect.

                    Problems Encountered: Not to many, just that is some times randomly falls off, sowatch out. Be as gentle as you can with it, and it willlast a long time.

                    Bought originally for Sony Handycam (8 and D8 models) and worked superbly. However, when used with Olympus SP-310 (on accessory tube), camera could not be made to focus on anything. But, for the price, this is the best fisheye lens for a camcorder that money can buy.

                    Problems Encountered: Be careful of the optical coating, it can scratch very easily. There really should be a front filter thread. Focus problems when used on Olympus SP-310.
