Century Precision Optics 0HD-FEWA-HVX overview

  • 1Description

This Century Precision Optics Xtreme Fisheye 0.55x Adapter Lens is for the Panasonic AG-HVX200 and HVX200A camcorders. A fisheye produces an extraordinary degree of barrel distortion. Adding the lens to the camcorder's zoom lens results in a 160° horizontal angle of view (180° to the corners).

The fisheye exaggerates depth, pulling nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background. Due to the lens adapter's characteristic barrel distortion, extreme low- and high-angle shots are made more dramatic. Applications include action sports, underwater photography, music videos, or that dramatic impact shot in tight environments where capturing the field of view is otherwise impossible. This lens will bayonet mount directly to the stock lens of the camcorder.

Note: The manufacturer highly recommends the use of a 15mm rail support system when using the Century Xtreme Fisheye.

    Century Precision Optics 0HD-FEWA-HVX reviews

    Xtreme Fisheye 0.55x Adapter Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE!!!! I am a well established skateboard filmer and recently purchased this to add to my arsenal of camera equipment that keep me up to industry standards. This lens (although a bit heavy at first) actually counter balances the weight of the HVX200 so it works really well. It was a bit of a challenge at first to get the lens on, but once you get it, its a breeze. Can't stop saying great things about this lens. For anyone that is looking to take their filming to the next step, I hightly recommend this lens. The cost is a bit much, but look at it as an investment in your profession or your passion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens The quality is great. The draw back is the weight and the amount of time it takes to mount but other than that it's well worth the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy fisheye is worth it Despite being so cumbersome, the Xtreme fisheye produces great results. I find that the degree of barrel distortion it produces (bringing nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background) are unmatched when comparing it to other fisheye lenses for HD cameras. What I particularly like about it is the close relationship between the lens and the hand that is used to hold the camera, I can accurately gauge where I am pointing the fisheye and how my image will look. However, what I don't like about it is how straining on my muscles this heavy lens is, I can only use it for short periods of time until my muscles get stronger from its use. Also, the fisheye's effect is more horizontal than it is vertical, which is unfortunately the case with all HD cameras and their widescreen nature. I use this lens for shooting skateboarding, so being able to know how my image will look without looking at the lens itself is very important, and this lens, in my few days so far of actually using it, have produced satisfying and accurate results. If you are serious about using the fisheye lens for the purpose of barrel distortion, I recommend purchasing it.
