    Vivitar VIV-43W reviews

    0.43x Wide Angle Lens Attachment for 43mm Filter Thread is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the money. A cost-effective solution. 5-stars because of price/performance. Some complain it's not wide enough. Well. it's not a fisheye. If you want a fisheye lens with all their inherent problems, by all means, buy one. This is not that. This lens gives a relatively un-distorted wide angle shot, screws snugly onto my Canon camcorder, and only costs $22 with case and lens cover. My only criticism is that is it should cost slightly more and include a lens hood because wide angle lenses like this are more a little more susceptible to lens flare, but if you shoot smart, this should not be a problem. Overall, an excellent product for the price. Works as advertised.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the money and a hidden feature I bought this for one of my camcorders, as the 'wide' setting on most zooms often isn't wide enough. ALL my other camcorders have an accessory lens of this type, and they all cost much, much more. I have yet to film with this, but looking thru the viewfinder when attached it appears to do it's job just fine. My version has a black barrel not a silver one like shown. Possibly mine is a newer version. One "hidden feature" not mentioned in the description is the rear element screws off and can be used as a 'macro' lens (their word) .. basically it is just a PLUS lens (magnifier) of unknown power. For cheap money it is a good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Wide Angle Lens for the Price Cheapest way you can go for a small wide angle lens - I use this on our Canon M500 cameras, and they seem to be fine... they are a nice wide, since going any father, and you'd start to really see the bubble/fish eye effect... plus price wise, these are hard to beat - I think Sigma makes this for Vivitar (BTW Vivitar never made anything, they are just a marketing company out of CA)I own 3 of these, the last one I got had a black barrel but it's the same lens... it's not the finest piece of glass you will own, but it did NOT seem to give me any issues or distortion even at 1080PI believe it is real glass, but it's not super heavy, so might be wrong here, but again, for the Money (+ or - $) you can't beat it, unless you get into something like a century optics, or the like.. but then, you are talking real $$only drawback for me, and it's not the lens fault, but it tends to cover up the stereo mics that are built into my camera (on the front bottom) - my solution was to just use a shoe mounted stereo mic... no worries...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 0.45x Wide Angle Lens Attachment for 43mm Filter Thread by V Not wide enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh say, can you see I have a different vivitar wide angle I bought for my other vlogging camcorder. I like this one better as there is no additional adapter ring needed. The unit is also black, which I like better as it matches the camera. As for the wide angle, it is really unbeatable for the price and quality. Built like the $50 to $100 versions.
    Date published: 2018-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully met expectations Used with a Panasonic NV-GS500 camcorder on a monopod, with a cable remote control. Auto-focusing was normal and there was no vignette effect.
