Kenko KMD-205S overview

  • 1Description

The two-lens set from Kenko is made up of the MD-05W 0.5x wide angle lens and the MD-20T 2.0x telephoto lens. The two lenses have a 37mm mount thread and contain step rings for 30.5mm and 30mm to mount on many camcorders from various manufacturers. These lenses have silver-finished aluminum barrels and high-quality glass optics coated to guard against reflections and flare.

This set should be of special interest to first-time camcorder buyers because the wide angle lens allows you to double the camera's original wide angle ability. The telephoto lens makes it possible to get twice as close to a subject without having to use the camera's digital zoom feature, which increases magnification by increasing the size of each pixel in the frame and thereby creating a pixelated image that is far less sharp than the optical zoom.

    Kenko KMD-205S reviews

    MD205S 2.0x Telephoto & 0.5x Wide Angle Lens Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, but not great First I'll say that I only use the wide angle converter lens with an HF100. I've never needed, nor used the telephoto adapter so this review is strictly based on the wide angle adapter. It does improve the usability of the camera in close quarters particularly indoors and the light loss seems to be minimal. That's the good part. The bad is that at full wide angle the barrel of the adapter is visible in recorded images and well before you reach the full telephoto end of the zoom range it degrades into a hazy blur. It's okay given the low price, but it is frustrating to have to avoid full wide angle shooting to keep this adapter from showing up in the video since that is really the main purpose of this adapter. I can forgive the telephoto performance since it really shouldn't be used for that purpose anyway.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great deal The wide angle give that really good look for sports and environment shots. The telephoto lens however has too small a diameter for my 37mm lens. You can see a ring which is something I'm not looking for, but for the most part I am really satisfied and with the results. You can zoom in about 10x until it becomes hard to focus.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as expected I purchased the set because I needed a wider angle of view for a wedding project I wanted to do. I have only used the wide angle lens with an adapter ring. Like it was mentioned in another review you can see the adapter ring in the video, but can zoom in past the adapter ring and still have a wider angle than the camera alone. After review of my wedding video the lens worked for what I needed. Couldn't beat the price!!!
