16x9 introduces 0.7X wide converter for HDV camcorders

The new 16x9 0.7X wide angle converter threads onto Sony’s HVR-Z1U and HDR-FX1 to add a 30 percent wider angle of view.

Capturing wider angles with Sony’s HVR-Z1U and HDR-FX1 HDV camcorders is now possible with a new optical solution from 16x9.

The new 0.7X wide-angle converter features a 30 percent wider angle of view, while maintaining full zoom capability. With its addition, the original 4.5-54mm lens becomes a 3.2-38.5mm lens.

Three multi-coated optical glass elements yield clean, high-definition pictures. The converter weighs 22.9oz and measures 1.7in in length. Its standard 72mm rear thread guarantees compatibility with other camcorders like the Panasonic DVX100/A and Canon XL series. Featuring a 95mm front thread, the 0.7X facilitates direct mounting of glass filters.
