Product Highlights
  • 0.55x Reversible Wide Angle Adapter
  • 43-58mm Step-Up Ring
The Century Precision Optics 0.55x Reversible Wide-Angle Adapter Kit is the first dual purpose lens accessory. When attached to the lens front in one direction, the 0.55x performs like Century's other high quality wide-angle adapters, offering a significantly wider angle of view, with minimal distortion. Used with the Sony VX-1000, the 0.55x provides a horizontal viewing angle of 73° (93° measured diagonally).

When you want to go "wow-em" wide with a fisheye effect, simply remove the 0.55x optical element, flip it around, and thread it on the other way. Voila! It becomes a fisheye adapter. Oriented this way, the 0.55x provides a wider angle pronounced barrel distortion. When used as a fisheye adapter on the Sony VX-1000, the 55x offers a horizontal viewing angle of 92° and a diagonal viewing angle of 115°.

The Digital Series is a family of high quality lenses available in a screw-on version with 58mm threads for use on camcorders and palmcorders, like the Panasonic AG-EZ1 or the AG-456. Step-up rings are also available for adapting to even smaller lens fronts.

With Century Precision Optics' range of video lens accessories, you can capture a stunning panorama, zoom in on a postage stamp or reach across a stadium to get a close-up. Many shots that would have been impossible to execute, or required prohibitively expensive specialized lenses are now possible, using your own lenses. By choosing the right tool, you can alter the optical characteristics of your lenses to dramatically expand their range and usefulness and capture imaginative new perspectives. Century products are found on the world's best optics, including Angenieux, Canon, Schneider, Fujinon and Zeiss. So, for answers to everyday optical problems, as well as creative solutions for unusual shooting dilemmas, look for a Century Precision optical tool, and expand the flexibility of your Video system.

This kit also includes a Century Precision Optics FA-4358 43-58mm Step-up ring.
