About Kenko 37mm Tele

The new two-lens set from Kenko is made up of the new MD-05W, a 0.5x wide-angle lens and MD-20T, a 2.0x telephoto lens. The two lenses have the popular 37 mm mount thread and also contain step rings for 30.5 mm and 30 mm to mount on many Mini DV camcorders from Canon and Sony and other manufacturers. These lenses have silver finished aluminum barrels and high quality glass optics that are coated to guard against reflections and flare.

This set should be of special interest to first time Mini-DV camcorder buyers because the wide-angle lens allows you to double, get twice as much in the picture, the camera's original wide angle ability. The telephoto lens makes it possible to get twice as close to a subject without having to use the camera's Digital Zoom feature. The Digital Zoom increases magnification by increasing the size of each pixel in the frame, creating a pixilated image that is far less sharp than the optical zoom.

The Kenko 37mm Tele is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Aspiring film maker among others.One reason why the Kenko 37mm Tele is popular is because of its Compact

Review Kenko 37mm Tele & Wide Lens Set.

I first used my tele lens to video the Blue Angels at San Francisco. I posted it to YouTube, and someone commented that I must have a really good camera to get the shot so close. I used my tele and wide lenses yesterday when the Queen Mary 2 came under the Golden Gate Bridge Feb 4, 2007.

I first used my tele lens to video the Blue Angels at San Francisco. I posted it to YouTube, and someone commented that I must have a really good camera to get the shot so close. I used my tele and wide lenses yesterday when the Queen Mary 2 came under the Golden Gate Bridge Feb 4, 2007. At a distance of about 2 miles away using the optical feature of my camcorder- zoom only, I'm looking at the bow of the ship. I'm thinking I need another lens to go with this, cause on full zoom, the atmosphere fogs or hazes the image. I'm thinking of getting one of the filter lenses to sharpen this kind of shot. I was also looking at the 3x lens [...]. The adapter rings allow me to fit it to the 2 camcorders I own. The package with 2 lenses and 4 adapter rings, lens covers, and lens bags, this is really a great addition to what I have. I noticed that I really need a lens hood. Light sometimes has the ability to reflect from the inside of the adapter lens and then like a mirror it is picked up as a ghost image on the tape. I like the rubber ring on the lens it helps to thread it to the camcorder, that is a big plus. I totally use my lenses, and I leave it on the camcorder all the time.This is all I have used, so I don't know what better there is. Someone will have to add to what I say in another review.

Kenko 37mm Tele & Wide Lens Set

The lenses worked the opposite of the way they were supposed to on my Sony SR11-HDR. The tele lens made things farther away and the macro make things smaller.
