Product Highlights
  • High-Index, Low-Dispersion Optical Glass
  • Multi-coating Provides Maximum Quality
  • Digital Multi-Coated Lens
  • Titanium Anodized Finish
  • Optimized for Macro
  • Infrared Compatible

The Impact DVS-TP20-37 2.0x High-grade Telephoto Converter Lens converts the focal distance of the body lens by a factor of approximately 2.0 when attached. With the use of multi coated and low-dispersion glass, this converter provides superior image quality and minimizes image distortion. It eliminates flare, ghosting, reflection and refraction - all before it hits the camera's original lens. This results in your camera capturing a much cleaner image.

The DVS-TP20-37 screws right onto your camera's existing lens system, and will attach directly to lenses with 37mm filter threads. In addition, a 34-37mm step-up ring is also included to make it compatible with 34mm threaded lenses.

      Con: not professional quality, but what do you expect in a lens less that $1000 and built for a consumer level camera?

      This product is false advertising. It is not a 2X lens at all and more like a 1.2X lens. When used with the cx550v at full wide there is vignetting showing the inside of this cheap lens. What a waste of money. Wish I had returned it.

            Intended for camcorders with 37mm filter threads, but will work with iphone/ipod using an adaptor case or a DIY case like i made. On problem was the included 24-37mm step ring got stuck on the lens, but as I planned on using the step ring in my DIY project, it didn't bother me, until I decide to add a wide angle lens, then I'll have to figure out how to get the lens of the step ring.

              Comments about Impact DVS-TP20-37 37mm 2.0x High-grade Telephoto Conversion Lens:

              I use this with two JVC camcorders. One at 30x and one at 40x. It is light enough to not limit its use on a tripod. It installs quickly and firmly. Light levels do have to be manually adjusted but results , color and resolution are quite acceptable when distance and price are considered. Good backup for those extra long shots.

                  This lens works perfect for my DIY interchangeable lens mount. I have an iPhone 4s and use it for HD video. I needed a telephoto lens for it so I made my own lens mount and now its like having a 70mm on my iPhone. Check out my web site to see it in use. trinityfxmg.com

                    Comments about Impact DVS-TP20-37 37mm 2.0x High-grade Telephoto Conversion Lens:

                    I gave this three stars only because of the price. It was quite affordable, and will help pull in distant subjects a little. It's pretty much useless when zoomed out, though, because you see (quite dramatically!) the tube that is the lens (i.e. like shooting through a tube). But, for the price, it's okay to have in your camera bag. I purchased it for my Canon HF-10 for occasional use, and to have in conjunction with the wide angle Canon lens that I already own. This lens doesn't compare at all in terms of quality with the Canon lens. But, as I've said, it's cheap, and it's alright to have on hand. Construction-wise, it seems okay.

                      It gives me the extra zip to get just a bit closer to the subject. You do have to be careful when you zoom out, because you begin to see the side of the lens and at full wide angle it look like you looking through a tube. But, I didn't buy it for wide angle shots, I bought it for extreme closeups from a distance.

                        I use the lens on a Sony TRV 18 to get more detail and light n a large room. The picture quality improves an incredible amount and makes a small camera shoot good quality video.
                        It is easy to mount and includes three step-up rings. It has it's own lens caps and a very nice bag to store it in.
                        The one problem I found is on a wide shot, the front of the lens adapter comes into the picture.
                        Overall, I wish I would have discovered the lens adapter sooner.

                                      I got this with my Canon HF-100 and use it for my low-to-no budget filmmaking.

                                      Pro: good image quality, easy to use. Accurate description on this site.

                                      Con: not professional quality, but what do you expect in a lens less that $1000 and built for a consumer level camera?

                                      Comments about Impact DVS-TP20-37 37mm 2.0x High-grade Telephoto Conversion Lens:

                                      I use this lens quite often to catch a wider view of things. Much wider than the .50 Wide angle, is the .37 SUPER wide angle Fisheye.

                                      Pros: Well built, all glass lenses.

                                      Cons: I'm fairly new to this field, but the Fisheye lens captures little halo's or bars of light if there is a lot of reflection in the shot. I'm not sure if this is common with FishEye lenses or not. I use this Super Wide angle fisheye, more than I use the .50 Wide angle or the x2 telephoto lens. So far its been great- had it about 4 weeks.
