Canon and Raynox lenses have been used and recommended by several other members. Here's a nice review by Robert Mann Z. which also covers the Raynox lens.

Haven't heard of anyone else trying to use the Sony lens.

The camcorder records data code that contains the date/time. There's a toggle button on the camcorder to display/hide the data code.

I may be too late to offer information, but I just received the Raynox QC-505 "snap-on" wide angle conversion lense (0.5X) and it works great with my Optura 50. It only cost $34.95.

Thanks,

Kelly

Just received another lens...a Raynox QC-303 0.3x snap on. It was $39.95 from bhphoto. You get obvious curvature on the sides, but it works very well for what I am looking to do (capture family get-togethers from a static point of view).

The only thing that sucks about the Raynox lenses is that they don't come with any real case or cap.

Thanks,

Kelly
