I use the Nizo UWIII on a Scoopic M with better results than the Canon wide angle adaptor which is scarce..
I have a few Century Precision lenses designed originally for Betacams with Canon or Fuji TV zooms.I have used them with a few super 8 cameras,they just take a little finagling to jerry rig them right.Haven't tried it on a Scoopic yet.

I haven't seen any footage blown up to 35mm or projected, but for video finish it looks fantastic.
It brings it down to 8.3755mm.
(You will need a 67-72 step up ring).
Really sharp lens, much easier to find than the Canon, and cheaper as well.
I see them on ebay quite often. Just make sure it's the UWIII.

Oh, you mean you wanted to still use the camera?
Seriously though, it's not meant to be removed.
Having said that, it would be waaaayyyy cool to outfit one with a PL mount, (or even a Nikon or Canon mount) wouldn't it?
There are service manuals out there you can get for the camera that have breakdown graphics, but it looks pretty difficult.
I have no idea how one would go about figuring out the mount modification.
It would be cool though...

Any comprable lenses for a cheap price anyone can recommend that I can take a look at?
