Product Description

An essential tool for extreme sports and dramatic action shooters. The .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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fisheye lens 7 April 2009
Was a bit dubious about the quality based on the price, but this lens gave superb images with my dad's HD camcorder. Lens fitted very nicely with the supplied adaptor and is easy to store in the leather pouch that comes with it.

Used last week on a snowboarding holiday to get some fantastic clips of boarding, skiing and sledging.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Great! 18 Aug 2011
Brilliant little lens. Nice and cheap. Has a few adapters on it but worked fine for my 30mm thread.

No bordering on the edge of the screen when fully zoomed out. I've had the lens for 10 months now and love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT 24 Aug 2009
By A. Melton - Published on Amazon.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Exellent Lens for a great price 10 Jan 2012

- lens Overall is Good (for that price i'd say its above good)

- its very easy to use

- you can make great mods with the lens (that's the best part of it)

Cons

if you tighten too much sometime you'll need help of something else to detach the lens from the camera...as it is made from some light metal then be careful.
3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, but not worth much more. 31 Dec 2011
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
let me start off by saying you get what you pay for. When i first got this lens, i was expecting it to do the job of giving me a wide angle. It does this just fine. The drawback of this lens is that it only looks good in 4:3, which isn't the standard ratio anymore. I shoot 16:9, like most people, and this lens cuts off about half of my image. To get rid of it, i would just zoom in, but since this is a fisheye, i don't want to break the first rule of using a fishey: don't zoom. This is a good lens for the money, but don't get it expecting much more.

My son says it is a bit warped on one of the sides. However, he consistently has used it and the price could not be beaten.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great cheap lens! 10 Feb 2011
By FlorianF - Published on Amazon.com
I really recommend this lens to anybody looking for a great fisheye lens!
The macro is very nice to, standard you just have a wide angle with fisheye effect but when you can take the macro off you'll get an sort of extreme fisheye effect which i captured here for you: [...]

The lens itself is made for 37mm camera's but this one comes with an 30 to 37mm conversion ring to fit on all 30mm camera's.
I hope my review was helpful and trust me this product is great!
