  • 1Description

The 16x9 Inc. 169-HDWA6X-62 is a 0.6X wide angle adapter. This attachment offers a top-quality and cost-effective method of obtaining wider angle images on a lens with a 62mm filter thread. With its single-element design and minimal barrel distortion, this lightweight adapter makes an excellent solution when shooting handheld video in tight spaces.

Note: While all single-lens elements have very limited zooming capabilities, the EXII 0.6X makes partial zooming possible with cameras that have autofocus capability.

    16x9 169-HDWA6X-62 Reviews

    169-HDWA6X-62 EXII 0.6x Wide Angle Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely needed it. I have a Sony PXW-X70 and do a lot of real estate photography. The problem is that the stock lens on the camcorder is too narrow for doing that type of work. So I purchased this adapter and get a 40% wider angle which helps tremendously. I still have some zoom capacity too. Depending on how you use it you may see some bowing effects on straight lines when moving past but easy enough to overcome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from update from High Contrast Considering this is a single element afocal w/a adapter, further tests have proved very impressive. Even to the extent of placing a 62mm circ-P Hoya HD filter between camera lens and adapter. Results compare favourably with the only other afocal w/a (the totally distortion-freeSchneider Xenar designed for a smaller sensor camera) . The other adapter had been tried on the FDR-AX100E but vignetting caused me to search out the 16x6 169-HDWA6x 0.6x adapter which covers the larger sensor on my camcorder even when full stabilization & full wide angle employed. Buying this type of equipment on-line can be an expensive gamble and in my case an earlier attempt resulted in buying the Vivitar HD3 Pro adapter which turned out to be far better suited to standard lenses on DSLRs. I recommend the 16x9 Inc lens for the prosumer Sony FDR-AX100E, and of course, its professional counterpart (with same sensor & optics), theSony PXW-X70.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best adapter found so far When fitted via the 62mm filter thread of the Zeiss zoom on the Sony FDR-AX100E 4k camcorder, central definition was excellent. To improve edge definition on an infinity shot select a portion of the foreground around 10ft away (as you can with this Sony camcorder) and try to avoid using any filters. This will improve definition across the frame. Barrel distortion is apparent but in many circumstances it can be disguised. Chromatic aberrations minimal on edge of frame but because of the excellent field of view, somehow acceptable. W/a equivalent to approx. 21mm when this camcorder switched to max image stabilization, however unstabilized, the image produced equivalent to approx. 17.5mm. when the Zeiss zoom at 29mm. Best at full wide angle, but 50% zoom-through obtained with acceptable results on this particular camcorder as my model can focus down to 5mm. Good image contrast even when shooting into the light but keep the lens CLEAN or auto-focus will attempt to focus on the front surface of the adapter! Manual focus more reliable but less suitable if shooting hand-held as inconspicuously as possible.

    Would this work on a Sony 18-200 zoom? with a Sony a6300?
    Asked by: Robert B.
    Wide Angle Adapters like this are designed to work on camcorder lenses. They will not work properly on a Mirrorless Camera with an Interchangeable Lens System like the A6300 with an 18-200mm lens. If you need a wider angle I suggest B&H #SO10184 which is the Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens.

    helloI have the Sony RX10, will it give me 24mm x0.6 = 15mm equivalent wide angle??
    Asked by: Michael S.
    Your arithmetic is correct. At the RX10's widest lens setting, this adapter will give you an equivalent Field Of View of a Full Frame camera at 15mm.

    If this is only usablethrough part of the zoom range; what part, low focal length? high focal length or mid?
    Asked by: Robert B.
    This Wide Angle Adapter only offers a partial zoom through. How far you can zoom will depend on the camcorder you are using, that being said I would not expect to get anymore than half way through the focal range with this adapter.

    Hi will this be compatible with the Sony z150?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes it will be. The Sony PXW-Z150, which is B&H #SOPXWZ150, has a 62mm filter thread. You can connect this Wide Angle Adapter to the Z150.

    Has anyone tried this on the RX10ii? This will save me buying another rig. Thnak you.
    Asked by: John F.
    I also purchased this adapter for use on my Sony FDR-AX100. It is working extremely well but I too have experienced loss of focus around 1/2 way thru the zoom range.
