Schneider Optics unveils Century Xtreme Fisheye for HVX200
Schneider Optics has introduced two new versions of the Century Xtreme Fisheye custom tailored to work with the Panasonic AG-HVX200, as well as the DVX100 and DVX100A/B camcorders.
This HD-quality optic lens locks onto the bayonet mount at the front of the camcorder lens to provide an approximately 160-degree horizontal angle of view (180 degrees when measured diagonally). For reinforced support, it interfaces with existing 15mm standard rod systems.
The Xtreme Fisheye is well suited for action sports, music videos, underwater photography or dramatic impact shots in tight environments where capturing the field of view is otherwise impossible.
Schneider Optics also offers a Century version designed especially for Sony mini DV camcorders, such as the HVR-Z1U and HDR-FX1.
