    This review is from: Sony VCLHA07A Wide Conversion Lens for Sony MiniDVandHi8 Camcorders (Electronics)
    I wish amazon had a 4.5 rating for this product because that is what i would give it. The lens fits right on my Sony DSR-300 video camera with no problems. The lens is distortion free (with some wide-angle lenses the corners can be distorted). It does give a wider angle for the camera but not as wide as i expected. The lens works great for those tight angles inside houses. I do filming for a church camp similar to habitat for humanity and it was difficult to film construction in tight spaces like closets and small bathrooms. This lens helped out in letting me get better filming of those spaces. I wish it was a little wider but i guess it would have been distorted that way. For the price it is hard to beat compared to third party models. It worked for me and I would totally recommend it to anyone who is interested in a distortion free wide angle lens.

    Great Alternative Wide Angle Lens for owners of Canon Vixia High Definition Camcorders, December 30, 2009

    This review is from: Sony VCLHA07A Wide Conversion Lens for Sony MiniDVandHi8 Camcorders (Electronics)

    This review may be a bit long, but for anyone who has purchased any Canon Vixia High Definition Camcorder with a 37mm lens thread, I would suggest taking a look.

    I purchased a Canon Vixia HF20 High Definition Camcorder on Black Friday and loved the ease of use of the camcorder and the excellent quality video it recorded. However, there was one major drawback to the camera. It did not have a very wide angle spectrum when I was recording in a car and aiming the camera at the driver from the passenger seat or when indoors and I tried to record many of family members in a single room. I had to stand as far back as I could just to fit everyone in the shot, and even then I could not get everyone into the picture. To solve this problem, I began looking online for Wide-Conversion lenses for my Canon Vixia HF20.

    I was extremely disappointed to find that Canon’s official Wide-Conversion lens, Canon WD-H37 II Wide Conversion Lens for 37mm Filter Diameter Optimized for HD Camcorders , was $198.37 on Amazon (down from Canon’s suggested retail price of $240.00.) Although Amazon offered the cheapest price on the lens, there was NO WAY I was going to pay close to $200.00 for a lens just so my camcorder could record indoors and in tight spaces (a capability that should have come with the camera out of the box.) I thought it was absurd that Canon would make customers who already spend enough money on their camcorders, spend that much more just to get this much needed capability.

    I went to my local Best Buy and unfortunately, they did not have many Wide-Conversion lenses available. The one lens they did have was the Sony VCLE07A Wide Conversion Lens for Sony MiniDV & Hi8 Camcorders. The lens ended up costing about $58.00, which was much cheaper than the Canon WD-H37II lens (however, I wish I bought it from Amazon since they offer it for about $28.00.)

    This lens had a few good features. It was very light and did not add much weight to the camera when attached. It also had the same plastic black thread that fit perfectly. It was not a metal thread, which if put on incorrectly, could have damaged the plastic black thread on the front of the Canon HF20. It also had a quick release feature that allowed for the lens to be removed instantaneously without unscrewing the thread. It could then be popped back onto the front of the camera just as quick and easily.

    The drawback to the Sony VCLE07A lens was that it didn’t offer the best picture quality. The video quality only looked good when the camera’s optical zoom was completely zoomed out. Once I started to zoom and got to about 1/3 of the complete 15X Optical Zoom, the image went completely blurred. The camera could not focus after this point no matter how slow I tried to zoom on a subject. Any type of recording of video after this point was useless unless I removed the lens from the front of the camera and zoomed. I found this to be unacceptable and pointless so I returned the lens to Best Buy and went back online to try and find a solution to my Wide-Conversion woes.

    After reading many reviews of a ton of different 37mm Wide-Conversion Lenses, I finally found this lens, the Sony VCLHA07A Wide Conversion lens. I figured that for $29.80, it couldn’t hurt to give it a try. Amazon was EXTREMELY Fast with the shipping (Free SuperSaver Shipping).

    There is almost nothing bad I can say about this lens. The video/picture quality is amazing! It does not have any barrel distortion around the edges of the video. The video/picture quality is just as clear as when the lens is not attached. Also, it gives me the much-needed Wide-Angle that the Canon Vixia HF20 lacks. Another great thing is that I can zoom completely in with the 15X Optical zoom and even into the 60X digital zoom without the camcorder losing focus or becoming blurry. The lens also has the same plastic black thread as the Canon Vixia HF20 rather than metal. The lens comes with two lens caps to protect both the front and back of the lens as well as a soft bag to store the lens in when not in use.

    If there are any drawbacks to the lens it would be that It does add a noticeable amount of front-end weight to the Canon HF20 when attached. Also, it blocks about half of both the the built in flash and video light of the Canon Vixia HF20. This makes its pretty useless to use the video light when recording without getting a shadow in your video cast from the lens. However, after reading reviews and comments about the Canon WD-H37II, it seems to be roughly the same size and weight and do those same things when attached so I don’t necessarily…
