Century proudly presents the totally redesigned Mark II .3X Fisheye for DV Cameras. Available in popular bayonet and screw in mounts, this high-performance optic features dramatically improved optics and a lens-saving front shade/protector assembly.
The .3X Ultra Fisheye Adapter offers an extreme fisheye effect and a high degree of barrel distortion. It exaggerates depth by pulling nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background. On the Sony DCR VX-2000, the.3X Ultra Fisheye Adapter yields a horizontal viewing angle of 130° (180°, measured diagonally).
With small digital cameras and the Century Fisheye, capturing extreme action shots is dramatic and practical. With its almost total depth of field and unmistakable style, this adapter is a must for action sports shooters.
Brian Smith uses the Century on his TRV-900 to capture extreme inline skating action. "Wtih the Century Fisheye Adapter, I can get in close to the action and allow the exaggerated perspective to create the drama and excitement I need in my shots."

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.
