    Canon WD-H58 reviews

    WD-H58 Wide Converter Lens (0.7x) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best addition ever to my camcorder!! All I can say is WOW! The build quality of this lens is top notch! Shooting indoors is so awesome now. I can fit more people in the frame at a closer distance. Outside is awesome too. I own the Canon Vixia HF S20. The auto-focus works perfectly through this lens. I can use the full zoom range with no problems. I plan to pretty much leave this lens on my camcorder all the time. As some others have said, the lens cap is very hard to remove. This is not the case for me. It is tight enough so it won't come off in my camera bag. My video kinda looks sharper with this lens. Very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for the Vixia HF series This is a very well built and solid wide converter lens. It weighs nearly as much as the camera (HF S100) @ 12oz. This does make the camera somewhat front heavy when shooting handheld. The image quality is generally excellent. However, as noted by Canon in the included documentation, there is some barrel distortion when shooting at full-wide. The distortion is not really that noticeable unless you have something striaght and vertical in the frame near the far edges. It also casts a shadow with the flash and built in video light, but you wouldn't really want to use that tiny built in light anyway. It's the best solution out for this camera, and unless you really needed the extra zoom I'd never take it off the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Good Wide angle I have a HF S21 and the wide angle was very good for the wedding events I have done. There is no loss in quality, i have compared with and without. It would be perfect if we could set some filter on it. I put a UV filter between the camera and the wide angle. It works well if I dont pan very fast. If I pan fast I will see the filter circle. You can use filters and using the wide angle only if you dont move too much. Except that It helps greatly to capture a group of person or a room. It adds some weight but it is not excessive and the camera looks very pro. This is a must have for a HF S21.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I originally ordered the lens because I was going to be shooting in a public square where I needed the maximum width so I took a chance and ordered it. Worked out fabulously - was exactly what I needed. Given that there are options out there I must say that it is a nice piece of glass. It is sharp and gives me the extra coverage I was looking for. Be warned though - it is heavy (1lb itself) so if you are using or thinking about buying a stabilizer/steadycam device it will throw your weight distribution off and you might have to up your model. Still, a nice lens that serves my purposes well. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best invesment for my camera! I have been doing some filming lately with my Canon HFS21 and have found myself needing more range. So I did some research and found a few wide angle options for my camera. I chose this Canon lens due to the fact that it has little to no distortion and did not diminish quality at all. As a matter of fact it appears to have improved the optical quality on my camera. My videos tend to appear sharper than they do without it. It is a very well made, high quality lens that I highly recommend for anyone who has a camera with a 58mm filter diameter. I just absolutely love this lens, this is THE wide angle to buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy, but awesome I shoot documentary-style video packages for a newspaper web site and needed something just a little wider for my Vixia camcorder. This fits the bill nicely, the quality of the image is superb, no real dropoff from the built-in lens. My only half-complaint would be that it's heavy, but of course that's why it performs so well, all the flawless glass components inside. And in the end having the front end of my small camcorder a little bulkier makes it easier to hold and keep steady with my second hand if I'm not using a tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Wide angle adapter for Vixia HFs10 This is certainly a professional grade adapter, compatible with the Vixia Hfs10 AVCHD camera. The image is crisp and non distorted from wide to telephoto - just right - Although a but on the heavy side, the results are well worth it. After all having a professional grade lens is a must for this camera. video is amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have for Canon Vixia HF S10 No vignetting, no distortion. Very serious add-on. I keep it on camcorder most of the time. It blocks the built-in flash but if you pay the money for HF S10, S100 or S11 and for this lens then just add VL-5 video light, DM-100 microphone and you will have everything you need.
