The Polaroid Studio Series 52mm 0.43x HD Wide Angle Lens makes a great cost-effective addition to any video or still camera kit.

          Soft focus at wide apertures

            Comments about Polaroid Studio Series 52mm 0.43x HD Wide Angle Lens:

            I bought this to use on my Canon 50mm/1.8 lens. Since I shoot a lot on low light, I intended to use it as a low cost wide(ish) angle conversion to use in the f/1.8 range, before going straight to the more expensive 24mm or 28mm lenses.

            Unfortunately, when the lens is set to f/1.8, this adapter has the softest focus ever anywhere slightly away from the centre of the picture. It goes away by f/3.5 or so, but my 18-135mm performs the same or better at f/3.5. I have no interest in lugging additional things around if my other gear performs the same or better.

            I took all of 4 test shots and I ended up returning it because I needed it for shooting at wide apertures and it doesn't perform well in that range.

            As for the macro attachment, it seemed alright but I didn't get to fully test it because I had no need for it.

            Don't despair if you won't need it for low light shooting (or don't mind the soft focus). It performs well from f/3.5 onwards (i.e outdoor/daylight).

            I am rating it low because it doesn't perform well when using wide apertures.

            less than 30%, great for traveling, when you dont have wide angle lens, its good to put this on kit lens.. 18-55.

            Comments about Polaroid Studio Series 52mm 0.43x HD Wide Angle Lens:

            If you need wide-angle lends, I think you already have some knowledge about it. I think this product is perfect to use temporary and it's totally my personal idea. Usually, wide angle lens are not that great price and also not that cheapppppp ... so I bought it and use for a week at Yosemite. Of course I can't get AWESOME quality pictures but I was satisfied, ENOUGH!!
