Schneider Optics introduces Century wide-angle lenses for small format camcorders
Schneider Optics has introduced a new line of Century Pro Series HD lens accessories to complement and enhance the performance of 43mm front lens thread camcorders like the Canon HV 40, HF 11, HF 20, HF 200 and Sony HDC-TM300K, HDC-HS250K, HDC-TM20K.
To expand the wide-angle capabilities of the camcorders, this line includes the .5X HD Wide Angle Adapter, the lightest and most economical way to increase coverage. For zoom-through wide angles, there’s the 65X Wide Angle HD Converter. And for super wide exaggerated angles, there’s the .3X HD Ultra Fisheye Adapter.
The Century top-grade optical attachments feature multicoated glass elements for crisp, high-resolution images and superior contrast edge to edge. Units thread neatly to the front of the 43mm camera lens. For cameras with 37mm front threads, a 37mm to 43mm step-up ring is included at no extra charge.
