Telephoto lens for a Z1
Posted 11 October 2006 - 08:36 AM
Has anyone used a telephoto lens with a Sony HDR-Z1, I know there's a 2x Century optics one available for about $1,500, I was hoping to get something a bit cheaper. Does HDV require a particular type of lens as opposed to DV, I could get a 2x tele for my Sony PD170 for a few hundred bucks but the camera lens mount is smaller than the Z1's 78mm one..
Any help / opinions appreciated.

I was thinking these cameras could be useful for poormans motion control (probably since I was just reading the Mr. Moco post and watching their videos) You could only do limited pans and tilts (more like pan & scan) and moco zooms. Not perfect, but for the kids making music videos, you can at least take away the 'locked off look' sorry, I have digressed (as I tend to do)
