Comments about Raynox HDP-2800ES High Definition 0.28x Diagonal Fisheye Conversion Lens:

Comparing this to a rokinon, century optiks, sigma, this fisheye is not that wide. Seems like it is zoomed in. Focusing is not great in low light settings.

Comments about Raynox HDP-2800ES High Definition 0.28x Diagonal Fisheye Conversion Lens:

For the price.. this fisheye lens does everything you would expect one to do. However.. I haven't had a chance to look at the quality images of fisheye footage from more expensive lens's on higher end cameras... but I would assume those would have much better quality than this one here.

A benefit in my opinion though is that since the camcorder is relatively small, the extra weight of the fisheye lens gives it much better stability and range of movement than its bigger counterparts. So to sum it up if you can't afford the higher end cameras for fisheye footage, then this setup will work just fine.
