    Sony VCLHG0872K reviews

    VCLHG0872K Wide Conversion Lens Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as heavy... The ability to record a wider angle with minimum distortion in small rooms or in weddings is awesome. It definitely adds weight to the front end of the camcorder, so your arm won't thank to you for that if you'll shoot without a tripod for a longer time. But the good thing is that this lens kit can be very easily dismounted when not needed and then mounted again when your arm got a rest... The lens fitted my NX5 perfectly and should fit any other 20x G lenses from Sony. And ohh yes! Such a large lens with the eyebrow and lens shade will make you camera look soooo impressive. ... and with the lens kit there were a nice carying bag that also protects the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting I read several of the reviews on this product. I wanted the best and the reviews said it was good quality, which I would expect with Sony name on. I needed to work in small spaces with my NX5U, so wide angle lens should help. I received the lens and connected to my camera in my office. It didn't appear to my any difference, at first. I thought I was doing something wrong. Not which you can do wrong. I did some addtional testing and yes it was a bit wider angle, just not what I was expecting. I thought about returning it, but it has been effective for the close quarters, so I will be keeping this converter as it is very high quality. Only slight fish eye effect. Thanks for the reviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wider angle and no distortion This lens adapter works great to add about 10 to 20% more image to your picture. The quality is very good and easy to use. At first you can't really notice the difference but then as you compose for shots and add or remove the lens you can clearly see what is being added to the picture by using the lens. Have not shot with many long tall objects going from top to bottom of the screen to see if there is any significant distortion, but what we have seen so far is that the image looks sharp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I use this on a G lens/HXR-NX5U HD camcorder. I come from the BetaCam era and used a $18,000 Fujinon 4.8x10 BEVM superwide zoom lens on my D-30, switching to a normal lens when needed. Over the years prior to having a superwide zoom, I used a few different wide-adapters, most common the Fujinon CV80. The Sony VCLHG0872K is better than any adapter I have used. It is, I think, every bit as good as my 4.8x10 Fujinon. The first test I made was shooting into the sun on a hand-held walking shot. Only a supermulticoated high end lens will do. No chromatic aberration, no interior reflections. Just the lens flare you'd expect, pointed at the setting sun, on a prime lens, or top-end BEVM Fujinon. Add to that the resolution and color saturation of NXCAM HD and you would see a smile on my face. Highly recommended. Duly noted is the fact that the adapter adds front weight to an already front heavy camera, especially when hand-held. My solution to this problem is a custom made shoulder mount with a behind the shoulder counter-weight (Domke belt pouch with spare batteries, wireless receivers, or just a carton of 1/4-20 steel bolts) combined with a custom 3x loupe on the LCD/viewfinder. This gives me a similar feel and balance of the D-30/PVV3 shoulder mount camera. This rig has a pistol grip with a Varizoom VZ Rock LANC controller-- comparable to the Peter Lisand Adjustagrip/Fujinon SRD setup I had on the D-30. Combine this with the wide-angle Steadyshot on the NX5U and you have a virtual Steadicam. My reputation is built on hand-held ability. This lens/camera combination is a great addition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference a lens makes Before purchasing the VCLHG0872K Wide Conversion Lens Kit by Sony I was somewhat taken back as to why so many reviews gave it 5 stars. After installing the kit to my hvr-z5u I was able to see a vast improvement in the quality of the footage. The only confusing thing about the kit was the filter holder, if you notice the image showing the four items. The filter holder is the one on the upper right hand corner. In the image it appears to have a white filter. The instructions does not mention anything about the filter, but just shows it in an illustration. Anyhow, I finally called B&H techs and they said the filter is not needed but one can be added if i wished to do so. Bottom line is, the filter should not be shown in the image if it is not part of the kit. Or perhaps a disclaimer should be added to the image. Or one should be included in the kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOKS AWESOME!! The wide conversion lens kit gave me exactly what I was looking for. A little wider field of view makes a huge difference in my opinion. Not to mention it is completely zoom through. It definitely adds weight to the front end of the camera, but is well worth it to me. The large lens with the eyebrow and lens shade will make you camera look impressive!! Kinda pricey but I am very happy with the kit!!! Also comes with a nice sony case for storing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Product! This kit also works great with Sony HVR Z7. Enhanced picture sharpness with low distortion.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works just fine on my FX1000 I use the wide angle adapter on indie films. it is simple to attach and french flag on the lens shade is a plus.Cost seems to be reasonable for other brand name mat boxes (only) cost about $1k.This kit fits my FX1000 and should fit any of the 20x G lenses from Sony.
