      My Canon HV 30 is a great little camcorder but it just doesn't cut it in the wide angle category being about 48mm (normal focal length in 35mm terminology) at the widest point in the zoom. I wanted the Canon but it was not available at what I considered a decent price (now it is) so I went with this Raynox which took me to about 34mm.

      What can I say - it's not a piece of junk but it's not a $1000 zoom like I have on my still camera. Most of my footage is destined for the web and this lens gives me very acceptable performance that meets that need. If you light properly and use good technique the video looks very good. I gave it four stars because five means professional quality which it ain't but you cannot beat the bang for the buck with this lens. A very reasonable wide angle solution for HV 30 and similar consumer camcorders. The black metal matches my black HV 30 and it looks like a very serious mini camcorder with it attached. It is not small and light but I like that as I find these camcorders ridiculously small and light and I prefer a little bit of meat on the machine for handling purposes.

      Again, for the money, this lens has given me the coverage I need at a quality level that satisfies me. You want perfection at wide angle -- go out and spend 3-5K on a professional outfit.

      I bought this to use with a DSLR and 50mm lens. I've used Raynox lenses in the past on Sony VX2100 and image was satisfactory but not so much with DSLR video purposes. When used with a DSLR, images is blurry and ghosting/haze appears.

        Comments about Raynox HD-6600PRO52 52mm 0.66x Wide Angle Lens:

        I bought this converter based on the reviews, but I am very dissapointed.

        I'm using it with a Nikon 18-55 kit lens on a D5100.

        It is EXTREMELY soft everywhere except the center (what the kit standard lens covers at 18mm) and suffers from heavy distortion on the edges, as well as slight vignetting.

        It costs 6-7 times the price of most alternatives and has similar performance (including the cheap Chinese ones).

        It is quite useful as a Macro lens, even though you can't detach the wide angle extension and just leave the macro.

        Completely useless for semi-serious photography. Go for a cheap alternative or save for a real wide-angle lens.

            This is a great little add on lens that does a good job with the wide angle shots I need and it was very affordable until I'm ready to step up to the higher end lenses. Glad I got it!

                        Comments about Raynox HD-6600PRO52 52mm 0.66x Wide Angle Lens:

                        I Have been using the Raynox 6600 on my Canon Vixia HV30 and it is absolutely amazing. Looks beautiful in footage and on camera.

                        Works as expected or great. There is a much larger radius of frame and thing look much farther than they actually are. Which is good when i was trying to do some long shots

                        The bad: Some of my footage for a short film looked a bit different only because i shot 24 frames per second and with the lens it looks more like 30 frames per second. so be aware it appears to smoothen movements and look like its adding frames. But that could also be good =)

                        Dont forget to buy a lens hood for this. The one i use is an XHA1 lens hood which you can buy at LA color shop online

                                  this is a nice lens and has minimal edge distortion .
                                  Only complaint is that the quality of the image changes when you are all the way zoomed in.

                                      I have my Canon HG10 for one year already, I'm very satisfied with camera, but the angle was not right, close shots was terrible narrow, I've decided to by wide angle, and after long investigations I've decided to by this one. It was perfect choice! The HD-6600PRO52 52mm 0.66x Wide Angle Lens works great! Absolutely no distortion - everything is as promised! I highly recommend this! I use this one with 43-52mm STEP-UP RING on my Canon HG10.

                                        This product is everything it claims to be. A good, quality, affordable wide angle lens. I'm shooting with the hv20 and this lens is essential for shooting indoors, unless you live in a big ol' house.

                                              A must have. Goes great with my HV30. This lens really comes in handy when shooting in cramped quarters or if you're looking to get more of the scenery into the frame. The image is crisp with no noticeable distortion. I am happy with this lens. It definitely gets the job done.

                                                I bought this lens to give my canon hv30 a wider view. I had read some good things about it and was in between this lens and the canon brand lens. Im glad i ordered this lens. It is wonderful. The black lens matches my hv30 beautifully.
                                                At the widest zoom length the lens works great. I do not see any noticable distortion on the edges what so ever.
                                                When zooming in at its furthest zoom, ghosting is very visible, but why buy a wide angle lens if you plan to zoom in so much.
                                                Over all, im very glad i purchased this lens. Priced lower than the canon, and works perfect.

                                                I use this lens with a step-up adapter on my hv30. Increases the field of view significantly. There is some barrel distortion, but amazingly no vignetting or blurriness around the edges. Also, I've noticed no discernable light loss when using this lens, focus does not appear soft either. However, this IS NOT a zoom-thru lens, so if that is important to you, I would consider another product.
