    I have the Canon Vixia HF S20 which has pretty poor natural wide-angle capability. In my opinion a lens like this is a must. It really opens up your shooting, both indoors for tight shots and outdoors for wide Panoramas.

    I actually bought both the Raynox HD-7000 Pro and the Canon WD-H58 so I could try them both. I only tried them both for a couple of days before I made my decision, but this is what I found:

    Both did an excellent job fully zoomed out. I have a new 1080p Samsung TV that I viewed some test results and neither lens showed noticeable distortion when at max wide-angle.

    When I zoomed in however, I did notice some perimeter blurriness and a "color separation" (clean borders of objects in a shot had a slight reddish hue to them that I didn't notice in shots without the lenses is the best way I can describe it.)

    This lens is not good for shots that you might want to have full zoom-ins or zoom-outs during a scene. Keep it in the zoomed-out range and the quality is great.

    I did get a "feeling" that the Canon's quality/build was slightly better than the Raynox, but when I scrutinized my limited test shots, I really could find no noticeable difference.

    The main things that sold me on the Raynox were:

    1. The threaded outer ring that allows for 82mm filter use. As a hobby photographer I always love using polarizing filters for outdoor landscapes and tropic beach scenes. An upcoming trip to Hawaii really made me want a lens with this feature.

    2. The lower price. I'm someone who never minds paying more for quality, but only if it's worth it. It wasn't worth paying the extra for less features and the same noticeable output quality.

    3. Ok one last thing. Funny enough the lens cap issue that others reported on the Canon lens really was a pain in the rear. You had to remove the cap as if it were a stuck lid on an old jar. I feared I'd drop or scratch it when I took it off. It'd probably loosen over time, but come on...for the extra money you have to pay, "Make a decent system to protect the thing!!!"

    Needless to say, I returned the Canon lens and went with the Raynox.

    After having and using my Vixia and lens for about a month and a half, I'm happy. One other thing I've noticed though is loss (or reduction) of image stabilization. The IS on this camera is fantastic, but when the lens is on, it seems to go away.

    Bottom line: It's a great addition to your rig, but only use it for when you need those wide angle shots to avoid some of its limitations.

    I like the lens, it allows me to get more in the image than otherwise, but as with all wide angle lenses it has a fish eye effect. It's easy to take off when it isn't needed and small enough to carry around. I haven't found any problems with it.

      Comments about Raynox HD-7000 Pro 58mm 0.7x Wide Angle Lens:

      I brought this product for my Canon Legria camcorder, it has a 58mm thread and is easy to attach to the camcorder. I chose this product instead of the Canon wide angle converter because the Raynos lens has an 82mm filter thread on the front. The Canon lens is appearently very good but it does not have a filter thread on the front like this one does. This lens works well, giving a good wide angle with no obvious distortion and no vignetting. It is sturdy and well made.

      Comments about Raynox HD-7000 Pro 58mm 0.7x Wide Angle Lens:

      I purchased this for a Canon XA10 as an alternative to the Canon .8x wide-angle adapter. I have not subjected it to scrutiny with artificial test patterns, but after some quick side-by-side shooting comparisons with and without the adapter, image quality appears to be very good in 1080p. It does introduce slight barrel distortion at the edges, but nothing offensive unless one is doing upscale architectural work.

      The added field of view is handy for capturing much more sweeping views of inside rooms, shooting in a vehicle, or if one had to shoot an interview on the go in very tight quarters.

      This does not come with a hood, and the front lens surface is pretty well flush with the 82mm front filter ring. I just ordered (but have not yet received) an 82 mm lens hood--both for protection and in the hopes of minimizing lens flare, which does happen easily with this adapter and no hood.

      Overall, definitely a keeper with good build quality, good image quality, and nice fit and appearance when attached to the xa10.

        Although you can expect a light blur on edges from all lens' like this, this wide lens blurred areas disappear with a bit of zoom in.

        Each time when we try increase options of our camera we are not forget check other side of it.
        I satisfy & recommend this lens to other Canon users, but small tripod & remote control now add to my bag.
        Also remember that part of camera flash now close by Raynox Lens (like any other too) & you can't use it when you need & need buy external flash.

        Does an excellent job of making my camera angle wider
        No distortion even at full zoom
        There are many video reviews of this product on youtube that pursuaded me to buy it, and I am glad I did.
        I would recomend a UV filter for the wide end of the lens to protect it from dust and scratches

          Use this on my Canon Vixia HFS100. Leave it on permanently. Sharp throughout the zoom range, adds a great deal of weight which helps with handheld stability, no chromatic aberrations or vignetting. Seems to be a great point between the cheapo wide adapters and the Canon wide adapter at twice the price.

          I do alot of instructional video but wanted to get in close without cutting my head off in the process,and this lens gave me what i needed.

          I did a huge amount of research and for the money this is the one to get,saved me alot of cash without giving up quality and it goes without saying,it;s wonderful for large group shots or landscapes.

          I have a Canon hf s100 and if i had to complain,it would be that the lens blocks the built in flash on the camcorder,but i never use it for taking pictures anyway and if i ever just had to i would simply take the lens off.

          Very good product and recomend it over any wide angle lens on the market for the camcorder i use, for quality and price.

          I use the product to shoot soccer games and it produces so much more of the image, without totally exacerbating the zoom. That was an important aspect for me when I was shopping for wide angle lenses. I saw test shots of this lens and it does not disappoint. There is no noticeable difference in quality of the zoom function with the lens on and off. It works great and it was not as heavy as a expected from reading the other reviews. I definitely recommend. No complaints. Oh but be sure to check your filter thread because if it doesn't fit that of the lens then you need to buy an adapter ring, which are pretty cheap but you might as well not waste shipping and order them together. For the canon vixia hv models you need to buy a 43-58 raynox adaptor ring.

          This works great on my Canon HFS100. It make the camera front heavy but it doesn't bother me in the least. HFS100 has poor steady shot, the weight of this lens really helps things out. The lens is large and if you have a small bag, make a note of that. It also blocks the almost useless light the Canon has built-in. I would Buy this lens again again.
          When folks see me filming with the lens, they know I mean business!

            Comments about Raynox HD-7000 Pro 58mm 0.7x Wide Angle Lens:

            I like the lens, it allows me to get more in the image than otherwise, but as with all wide angle lenses it has a fish eye effect. It's easy to take off when it isn't needed and small enough to carry around. I haven't found any problems with it.

            Comments about Raynox HD-7000 Pro 58mm 0.7x Wide Angle Lens:

            I keep the lens on the camcorder [HF-S21] at all times as it does what I expected it to do.
            It does expand the angle without visible distortion.
            It also helps stabilize the hand while recording.
            It also brings a nose-down tendency which requires a bit of effort to compensate (that's why I rated it 4 rather than 5).
            Good buy, overall!

            The lens fits perfectly and the wideangle is good.
            When you fully zoom in you will see that the edges become blurry but this lens is not a lens to fully zoom in with. The lens also blocks the light of the camera but this happens with all wide angel lenzes.

            It is strong but heavy

              The finition is good, as usual with japanese products....
              It's a bit heavy but the pros is that it stabilize the cam.

                  I use my Vixia HF S10 at my community theater and the lens allows me to capture more the stage at once. The increased viewing angle is great with no distortion or loss of quality.

                  It is too bad it blocks the flash as I do like to take occasional stills with my camcorder.
