Tele Converter for Sony Z1U & More:
A top-of-the-line Tele Converter designed to enhance the performance of popular compact HD camcorders, including the Sony HVR-V1U and HDR-FX7. The latest in the 16x9 Inc. EX Collection of HD-quality lens accessories, the 1.5X simply threads onto the front of the camera lens, adding 1.5X magnification, moving the focal range in the telephoto direction.
Extreme Telephoto, Instantly & Simply:
When teamed with the HVR-V1U's internal 1.5X digital extender, the EX 1.5X combines to produce a full 2.25X telephoto effect. The original camera lens focal length 3.9-78mm shifts to 14-175mm, or the equivalent of a 35mm still lens with a range of 135-1683mm. And 16x9 Inc.'s new attachment also offers significant zoom-through ability. When used with the internal extender, the Tele Converter lets operators zoom nearly 12.5X before vignetting.
This lightweight (21 oz.), and compact (68mm long) production tool mounts to thefront of the HVR-V1U and HDR-FX7 lens via an easy to use 72-62mm step-down ring (included at no charge). The Tele Converter's 72mm screw-in rear threads allow it to work equally well with Sony HVR-Z1U and HDR-FX1, Canon XH A1, XH G1, XL-H1and XL2, and Panasonic DVX 100B camcorders.
For professional shading solutions, the unit comes complete with a lightweight, round hood. The EX 1.5X lens front is threaded to accept either the complimentary hood, 86mm glass filters - or a combination of filter with the hood front mounted for even greater light control.
Innovative, Technically Advanced Design:
The 16x9 Inc. EX Collection is engineered and built in Japan for optimum opticalperformance. The 1.5X features an innovative, technically advanced design employing an elegant assembly of five multi-coated elements. Low dispersion glass reduces chromatic aberrations and provides professional images with exceptional crispness and clarity.
For professional shading and filtering solutions, the EX Tele-Extender neatly interfaces with Alfred Chrosziel HDV mattebox systems.
