16x9 offers aspheric wide converter for Sony PMW-EX1/EX3 camcorders

16x9 has introduced the EX 0.75 Aspheric Wide Converter for Sony’s PMW-EX1 and EX3 camcorders — a wide converter that brings the benefits of aspheric technology to DV and HDV cameras.

The EX 0.75X provides a 25 percent greater angle of view while maintaining full zoom capability. It has an aspheric lens element to more effectively reduce geometric distortion and chromatic aberrations and improve off-axis wide angle performance.

Use of the aspheric lens surface allows the other elements of the converter to be smaller and lighter. Without it, the aspheric elements would have to be larger to achieve the same level of performance. This helps keep the unit’s size and weight at a minimum, making it especially well-suited for handheld work.

The EX 0.75X contains a total of four multicoated optical glass elements — including the aspheric lens — that combine to yield clean and vivid, HD images. This lightweight, compact optical accessory attaches securely to the front of the EX1 and EX3 via a convenient bayonet mount. Installation and removal is quick and easy.
