This Century Precision Optics 0.55x Fisheye Adapter Lens is for the Panasonic HVX200 camcorder. The Fisheye produces an extraordinary degree of barrel distortion with a magnification factor of approximately 0.55x. Adding the lens to the HVX200's 13x Zoom Lens, results in a 92° horizontal angle of view.

The Fisheye exaggerates depth, pulling nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background. Due to the lens Adapter's characteristic barrel distortion, extreme low and high-angle shots are made more dramatic. An attic crawl space induces heightened claustrophobia. A forest of tall skyscrapers bends menacingly over the audience. This lens will mount with a bayonet directly to the lens of the HVX200.

      Comments about Century Precision Optics 0.55x Fisheye Adapter Lens for Panasonic HVX200:

      I remember a shooter had an older version of the same fisheye. He needed to fit a ring around the camcorder lens before putting the fisheye on.

      With this model, it's just a quick couple of twists and you're good to go. I find myself popping this on and off for a variety of different shots while on the move.

        Comments about Century Precision Optics 0.55x Fisheye Adapter Lens for Panasonic HVX200:

        Normally I am not a fan of the fisheye but I really like the look of this one. Not overkill on the distortion and no vignette.

        Great Price as well!
