Which wide angle adapter for HV10?

Hi, I've got my HV10 for almost a year now and always tought its FOV was too narrow.
I'm a noob in all this video/photo stuff, so I don't really know what kind of lens is a good buy for me. (I'm not shooting anything for commercial use, just personal use).

Is the Canon WD-H37C worth?.

Thanks in advance.

Raynox 5050 = good. Search this forum for HV10 + wide angle.

I read this causes vigneting on HV10, but I also found some captures which didn't show vigneting at all.

So to sum up, Raynox 5050 or Canon WD-H37C?

I have the Canon part and I'm pretty happy with it. It doubles the weight of the cam but since it is so light weight I think it helps to hold it still. NO vignetting over the full zoom, practically it's on all the time.

I purchased the original CANON wide angle and have been very pleased with the quality of the picture.

The 5050 can have slight vignetting if you leave the plastic 37mm <> 37mm adaptor ring in place - the trade off is with this ring removed the back of the 5050 can touch the HV10's built in lens cap - but this has caused me zero problems in real world use.
