Now camcorders with 72mm lens fronts can enjoy 20% wider coverage throughout the zoom range with Schneider Optic?s new Century HD Compact .8X Wide Angle Converter. Featuring universal screw-on threads for easy installation, the .8X fits popular DV/HDV cameras such as the Sony HDR-FX1 HDV/HVR-Z1U, Panasonic AG DVX100A/B, Canon XL-2, and more.

About half the size and weight of other wide angle converters, the Century HD Compact .8X has a length of 1.14? (29mm) and a width of 3.54? (90mm) at its broadest point. The weight is just 10 ounces (284g).

For creative light management, the Converter comes complete with a rectangular sunshade. Constructed of lightweight, rugged polymer, this handy accessory simply clamps on when needed. It also features 86mm front threads to accommodate standard screw-on filters.

Like the multitude of Century lens add-ons for professional Broadcast, HDV, and DV cameras, the new HD Compact .8X features multi-coated glass elements for crisp, high-resolution images with low distortion, and superior contrast edge to edge. It is also the most cost-effective professional Converter on the market. Suggested U.S. list price is just $595 (sunshade included).
