    Sony VCL-HG1730A reviews

    VCL-HG1730A 1.7x High Grade Telephoto Conversion Lens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not yet amazed, but will keep trying I mounted the lens on my 25x camcorder and set about filming deer at anywhere from 100 to 300 yards in early morning and late afternoon, sunny, conditions. None of my shots with the lens on were what I would call exceptional; none were as sharp and clear as I'd hoped. If I filmed animals that were too close - within 100 yards - I got a lot of purple fringing and blurry shots. However, this was my first outing with both the camcorder and the lens, so I've given the lens four stars based on the probable learning curve I need to tackle. In all fairness to the lens, it is likely that my initial results are skewed by my own inexperience with my equipment! I am hoping for better results and will keep trying until I achieve them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and Helpful! Thank you for providing this lens and the reviews with it. I was able to get a better picture inside a banquet room recently! My pictures captured a lot and I didn't have to move.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zoom Zoom In The lens allows you to zoom in a bit more than your HandyCam's max.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Approaches to quality The lens comes without distorting the images, an excellent addition to your original zoom.
