Product Description

An essential tool for extreme sports and dramatic action shooters. The 0.43x Super Fisheye Adapter offers an extreme fisheye effect and a high degree of barrel distortion. It exaggerates depth by pulling nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background. Advances in high-index / low-dispersion optical glasses, new barrel materials, and exotic anti-reflection coatings, along with the latest in computer-aided-design / computer-aided-manufacturing, are combined to produce lenses of unprecedented quality. Diamond-cut from crystal-clear, water-white optical glass, Opteka lenses are ground and polished to a precise precision. Because all Opteka lenses are designed and manufactured with the highest possible degree of consistency, you can swap lenses mid-shoot with no discernable variation in color or effect. The unprecedented purity, color saturation and repeatability of Opteka lenses virtually eliminate the need for lab color timing corrections caused by other lenses. This puts more creative control where it belongs - in your hands. Opteka lenses stand up to the most rigorous demands on the stage and on location. Opteka's hard anti-reflective (AR) coating offers protection specially formulated to resist flaking, peeling and scratching. This proprietary AR coating also reduces light loss and flare to less than 1% per surface, compared to untreated glass which has a light loss of 4% per surface. Opteka lenses allow you to shoot with total confidence!

I use the Opteka .43x fisheye converter on a Sony DCR-HC62 camcorder. The lens has a 37mm thread size and came with a 37-30mm step-down ring to fit on my camera. It works just the way a fisheye converter should work. The video looks good, I have no complaints.

This was a great product to buy. Absolutely no complaints. This wide angle fish eye lens did exactly what it said it was supposed to do and I couldn't be happier. It came with a bag for the lens and a very warm hat with the "Opteka" name on it. So I guess I got more than what I paid for. I would recommend this product to anyone.

The lens is really great I got the lens becuase im a skateboarder and when you record skate videos you need a wide lens or a fish eye. I got the lens very fast and they kept me up dated with the delivery. I got the lens kinda late last night so me and other friends didnt go to schooln becuase we wanted to skate and record and see how the lens was. The lens has a 5 year warrenty which is really great. Its in HD is its really a great fish eye lens.We were amazed by how close I could be to my friends face and still see more this upper body. Its a an amazing lens its built for skating.

I bought this lens as a birthday present for my brother... I wasn't too sure how it would go over but I figured for the price it wouldn't be too much of a loss if he decided it wasn't what he was looking for... turns out he was thrilled with it. It was a perfect fit for his Sony DCR SR45 camcorder... the "span" of the fisheye scope is excellent... it's a great, affordable "starter" lens for those up and coming do-it-yourself skateboard videos... it even comes with a little leather protective pouch.... and best of all was the price!

Got this for my SOny HDR CX130, it screwed on right outta the box, and the image quality looks great in HD. The circle is not as wide as the screen when zoomed all the way back (get what you pay for) but you can just zoom in a little bit and get just the blackness in the corners, or zoom a little more and have no blackness at all. There are many better fisheye lenses in the world, but not for $30.

The Opteka .43x Full Fisheye lens is priced very low and is a good alternative to the much more expensive Sony product. The 5 stars is a value rating which in my opinion is good.

Bought this fish-eye for son to make skateboarding videos on a Sony DCR-SX85 handycam. It works very well in a way that a fish-eye is supposed to work. It came with a bag to protect the lens and I couldn't be happier that I bought this product. I have no complaints. The item shipped really fast too. Ordered it on a Sunday and it came on Tuesday. This is a must have for skateboarders. I would so recommend this to anyone who is interested in making full HD videos for sports or personal use.
