    Canon WD-H37C II reviews

    WD-H37 II 37mm Wide Angle Conversion Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optics, Works Well, Large & Heavy I had purchase a cheap wide angle lens for my HF100 and was disappointed with all the extra artifacts I'd get on sunny days. Plus, I wasn't able to use the zoom without getting image degradation. I then bought the WD-H37C II, and what a difference. This lens looks great, but it sure is BIG. I had heard others mention it's weight and they were right. This thing weighs almost as much as the camera. But, if you need great quality then this is the lens to get. Oh, and zooming, no problem. I do not like how it interferes with the built-in lights on the camera, so it looks like I'll have to add the hot-shoe-mounted light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens! Worth The Money! I have used the cheaper wide angle lenses for my canon camcorders in the past but I was never really happy with the results or the versatility when zooming. While some of the cheaper lenses will get fuzzy when zoomed in or crop the corners when zoomed all the way out this lens cover the full zoom range with perfect clarity. This is a wide angle lens, so you do get a bit of the fisheye effect when zoomed all the way out but that is too be expected. Invest in this lens and you will get a whole new appreciation for you camcorder! Also gives any consumer camcorder that indie feel since this lens is BIG! much larger that the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Good Upgrade I current own a Canon HG21. I use the camera for a vast array of projects. I purchased the H37 II in hopes of gaining wider shots. The product did just that. I spend lots of time filming outside, shots of the hills in the fields become shots of the whole field, even in close ups the images are widen. The extra space in the frame is a leap toward a more professional image. One additional note is that movement in the frame is smoother more organic with the Wide Angle lens. I don't have much experience with other products, but I can speak for the improvements I have perceived and how new inspiration has come just from the addition of this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must add on Excellent clarity even at full zoom. My wife actually thinks the picture is sharper. Canon failed to give a wide enough lens for indoors or anything within 25 ft with their standard lens.(ie:Parties, Car shows) This add on greatly improves a good camera in the Vixia HF M31 making it much more versatile. Only shortcomings are the lack of filter threads, color mismatch with current cameras, and it's slightly heavy weight. ... I am very happy with this purchase. I only wish it was less expensive, but sooooo much better than any after market converter. You will miss so much in your videos without this item.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from made a big difference This lens made a big big difference recently when I shot some cheerleader competition action. Without it, there was no way I was going to be able capture everything without panning and moving. But with it on, I was able to setup underneath the judges' table for a very unique (according to the cheer coaches) angle without missing the action. The slight curvature of the lens on the edges actually added to the effect, giving me a smooth, curved ceiling of lights - looked very cool. I would use this mainly indoors whenever you want to capture more in a large hall from a stationary position, or whenever you are in tight quarters and moving around. Not really worth it for outdoor shooting, in my opinion.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp lens for your HD camera I had a Raynox HD-5050PRO on my Canon HF10, but I wasn't completely happy with it. I wanted a lense that I can keep on the camera all the time. In practice this means I want the picture to be sharp also when zooming completely out. The Raynox didn't deliver on this aspect, but this Canon lense does. The overall picture quality is great! The conversion is 0.7, not 0.5 like in my Raynox, but this seems to be sufficient for my purposes. The lense is a bit bulky (check if it fits in your case), and you can't attach a protective filter on it. Still, I'm very happy to have spent the extra money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a Must Have! This lens cures the lack of wide angle shooting in camcorders with 37mm threads. Going from the stock 40mm angle to 28mm angle fills the badly needed missing feature in my Canon HF200. I leave it on all the time, giving a zoom range of 28 to 400. I am very happy with this lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Lens Its a bit heavy, but for a lens, that means quality glass. Great picture with no distortion around the edges. A little more expensive than other brands, but with Canon you get what you pay for. Would rather it be black to match my HF21 camera but its not a big deal. Love the images. Macro ability is amazing. Saw a Sony lens on the same camera, but it didn't shoot as well as the Canon lens.
