About Century Optics

Schneider Optics announces the Century Pro Series HD 2X Tele-Converter for the Sony HVR-Z1U and Sony HDR-FX1 . This professional optic instantly mounts to the camcorder lens front to effectively double focal length range in the telephoto direction, while maintaining the lens' original F-stop at full telephoto.

Designed in response to requests for a tele-converter offering even greater magnification than the popular Century 1.6X, the Schneider engineering team utilized leading-edge computer design techniques to successfully develop the 2X which provides extreme magnification while maintaining performance required by the new higher resolution formats.

This professional accessory features multi-coated glass elements to deliver ultra-sharp images free of unwanted distortion or chromatic aberration. Equipped with a bayonet mount, installation to the front of the camcorder lens is quick, easy and secure. The unit comes complete with a lens support slider for mountingon standard 15mm support rods.

The new 2X Tele-Converter offers a 105mm diameterfront for compatibility with many existing shades, matteboxes and accessories. In fact, the company is so commited to the contention that a deep lens shade is vital to minimize flare and stray light, the new attachment ships complete with a lightweight round shade with a built-in rectangular mask.

For greater protection, the face of the unit offers 102mm threads for direct attachment of Schneider 102mm clear UV filters. The Century Pro Series HD 2X Tele-Converter is available in three models: for the HVX200 (manufcturers code 0HD-20TC-HVX), for Panasonic DVX100A/B ( code 0HD-20TC-DVX), and for the Sony HVR-Z1U and Sony HDR-FX1 ( code 0HD-20TC-HDS).
