The Cokin R730 37mm 0.5x Wide-Angle Conversion Lens is a quality conversion lens designed to broaden the field of view when attached to a digital camera's or camcorders existing lens. It is designed for use with digital cameras or camcorders with a 37mm filter thread. Alternatively, an optional appropriately-sized adapter ring can be used for other sizes.

This lens widens the angle of view by multiplying the focal length of the camera by 0.5 times, which doubles the angle of view. This improves the composition of many interior and wide scenic shots.

          Comments about Cokin R730 37mm 0.5x Wide-Angle Converter Lens:

          I'm using this with the iPad mini and a tripod mount. I'm filming musical performances, both in the classroom and on stage. This wide angle lens increases your field of vision by just enough so that that fourth member of the band (who;s always in the corner) can be heard AND seen. It avoids that creepy "fish-eye" look while expanding your operating range.

          Clean and crisp image but when used with total open zoom, dark shadows appear on the corners of my Canon Vixia.

          Comments about Cokin R730 37mm 0.5x Wide-Angle Converter Lens:

          I got this for my Canon VIXIA HF 100 High Definition camcorder to record in-car race footage for my 24hours of Lemons Race. It easily opened up the view and allowed more space to be recorded. I had not attempted to do this previously as the standard 'wide-open' ratio is too claustrophobic for in-car footage. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and almost looks like it came with my camcorder.
