16x9's 169-HDWC7X-46 EXII Wide Angle Converter is an HD-quality 0.7x add-on lens designed specifically for camcorder lenses using a 46mm filter thread. Providing a 30% wider field of view so you can capture more on-camera action, the converter's full zoom-through capability translates to no edge vignetting at any point along the zoom range. With three multi-coated glass elements to keep barrel distorton and chromatic aberrations to a minimum, the EXII also offers an improved design and lighter weight over previous EX versions. Its threaded front accepts any 67mm filter, with compatibility extending to Chrosziel sunshades and matteboxes--allowing for high-quality imagery in virtually any shooting environment.

Compact and Lightweight Design
Weighing only 5.1 oz, the EXII 0.7X Wide Converter significantly reduces weight compared to other wide converters, a critical advantage for camera operators shooting handheld.
Wider Coverage & Full Zoom Thru
The EXII 0.7X Wide Converter provides 30% more angle of view over the stock lens and maintains full zoom-thru capability.
Highest Optical Standard
Cutting-edge optics reduce geometric (barrel) distortion and improve off-axis performance, particularly chromatic aberrations and flatness of field.
Filtering Solutions
For greater light control, the lens front is threaded to accept 67mm glass filters.
Shading Solutions
For a great shading solution, 16x9 Inc. offers an optional lightweight Rubber Lens Shade. For professional filter solutions, the EXII 0.7X neatly interfaces with Chrosziel mattebox systems.

        Super lightweight and add a nice wide with little or no vignetting on the edges. Sharp all the way through and much better lens then the Canon W43 i used on the camera prior to the purchase. Buy as a kit on sale with the lens hood or separately with hood when not on sale. Would buy again.

          I bought this lens for my Panasonic HDC-HS700 camcorder. It is very light to compare to other lenses. This lens has filter thread which is important to me.
          It performs well optically. great zoom through with no vignetting at all. At the same time I can see distortion. It is a little, but noticeable distortion which I can live with.

            A must for the JVC GY-HM100U. Lightweight. Great zoom through. Slight vignetting, but acceptable. Only wish it was wider!!! Reasonably priced, too. Don't forget the lens shade.

              Comments about 16x9 Inc. 169-HDWC7X-46 EXII 0.7x Wide Angle Converter (46mm):

              I was looking for a good wide angle converter for my Panasonic TM-700 camcorder and this 16/9 EX II is great compromise between optical performance/weight/price and versatility.
              It performs well optically, allows to be zoomed through without too much degradation, don't add too much weight and even has a front thread for an optional filter. The only drawback is that the matching hood sold by 16/9 cannot attach once a B+W filter is fitted on the wide angle. If the hood attached differently it could work. I hope 16/9 will redesign their hood attachment to address this.
