Schneider Optics adds Century Pro Series HD lens accessories for Canon, Panasonic 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, such as the Canon HV 40, HF 11, HF 20 and HF 200 and Panasonic HDC-TM300K, HDC-HS250K and HDC-TM20K.
To expand the wide-angle capabilities of the camcorders, the line includes the .5x HD wide-angle adapter; the 65x wide-angle HD converter for zoom-through wide angles; and the .3x HD ultra fisheye adapter for super-wide exaggerated angles.
The Century 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.
