For capturing extreme wide angle dramatic action shots, slip the Ultra Fisheye onto your ultra compact camcorder. With .3X magnification, this non-zooming optic achieves a 180° diagonal (130å horizontal) field of view (on the Sony PC1). Extreme sports shooters have nicknamed this lens "Baby Death." Let your imagination be your guide for the possilities this combination will provide. And at only 78mm diameter, this miniscule tool is less subject to damage in challenging shooting situations than large fisheyes for other digital cameras.

I Shoot video for Skydiving and had to ask around to try to find the best lens for capturing Skydiving in general. A friend told me hands down, buy this lens for your Sony CX-100 and you will have a great setup. Well he was right about everything. The camera shot good HD footage to begin with. Now, It looks like I went Blu-Ray. The Lens is sharp. Most lens will give you a 180 Deg spread but only 100-130 of it it in focus. Everything you shoot with this lens is in focus and really cuts back on giving you that normal Fisheye round effect we so need to get away from. This lens does a great job on all levels. Yes it might be a little heavy but you can't make a great lens with good glass without adding a little.
This is the only fisheye on the market that truly delievers professional quality at an affordable price. It is specifically designed for use with most compact camcorders, whereas other fisheyes are made for larger cameras, such as the sony vx1000. If you're looking for a great fisheye for your camcorder, look no further because this is the best. Also, you can find adapter rings online for your camera at www.adapterrings.com if the threads for the 37mm lens are a little big or small for your camcorder. However, this product already comes with a set of 3 adapter rings, so check your camcorder you could be set. Overall I would recomend this product to anyone who's interested in buying a professional fisheye for their camcorder.
