This Century Precision Optics 0.55x Fisheye Adapter Lens is for the Panasonic HVX200 camcorder. The Fisheye produces an extraordinary degree of barrel distortion with a magnification factor of approximately 0.55x. Adding the lens to the HVX200's 13x Zoom Lens, results in a 92° horizontal angle of view.
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. An attic crawl space induces heightened claustrophobia. A forest of tall skyscrapers bends menacingly over the audience. This lens will mount with a bayonet directly to the lens of the HVX200.
