Opteka OPTNINJA37 overview

  • 1Description

The Opteka Platinum Series 37mm 0.2x Low-Profile "Ninja" Fisheye Lens for Camcorders produces an extreme fisheye effect for video cameras with a 37mm filter thread on the lens. The 0.2x magnification enables up to a 180° field of view, which results in a striking degree of barrel distortion. Foreground elements are "pulled in" to the frame, and distant objects are made to recede even further into the background.

The fisheye effect is a useful weapon in any videographer's arsenal, even though it certainly will not be used on every shoot. When it's called for, however, the effect is unmistakable, and the Opteka "Ninja" supplies it with a very low-profile (only 0.4" deep) design. It's perfect for extreme sports, music videos (especially for a retro "1990s look"), and for engendering disorientation in an audience during a dramatic scene.

Opteka has leveraged advances in high-index/low-dispersion optical glasses (two glass elements are used for this lens), new barrel materials, and exotic anti-reflection coatings and has combined them with the latest in CAD and computer-aided manufacturing to produce an extremely high-quality, cost-effective fisheye converter.

    Opteka OPTNINJA37 reviews

    Platinum Series 37mm 0.2x Low-Profile "Ninja" Fisheye Lens for Camcorders is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact Design & Reasonable Price I purchased this lens for close-up work when skydiving as an instructor with students. It allows me to record most of their body in frame at one time at arm's length in freefall. I am using with a Sony CX-100 and a 37 to 30 mm adapter ring. The camera does pick up some images of the barrel while recording with my setup. I am not terribly concerned with picture quality in the case of this lens and would say it seems to be as good as a Royal or Liquid 0.2 conversion lens with a much friendlier price tag.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Lens, doesnt work with my camera I purchased this lens to attach to my ContourHD helmet cam. It attached fine, but the camera would not focus through the lens and everything came out super blurry. There are no settings on my camera to adjust zoom or focus so I am stuck returning this awesome looking lens!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact fun lens Use it on a Sanyo HD2000. Have to put the camera in macro to focus even at full range but it works very well. Love how compact it is. There is some distortion around the edges but still works great. Does not zoom through.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from IMPORTANT : you will need a macro lens or adapter 1 Star because I could not use it. In order to be able to focus this lens, you need a camera with optics that can do macro, or you'll need another macro adapter between this adapter and your camera lense.
