I'm looking for a way to get a decent fisheye lens effect on my Canon 814 XL-E. The mounted lens has a 58mm lens thread diameter.

I thought of putting a screw-on-adapter on it, since the lens isn't interchangable.

 

Any experience or recommendations, you guys?

I use a Opteka 5mm 0.3x fisheye on both of my super 8 cameras. Had to remove the lens guards because they showed up in my first test reel but I think it looks great and it's really wide with nice distortion.

Thanks Hunter!

Could you post a sample frame with the fisheye screwed on?
