Well if you have the Wide Angle Lens at full wide, and get really, really close to it then you're almost there. Maybe do the rest in post somehow.....

I guess a century optics 58mm will work fine if you have money for it..

I used a very cheap ebay lens attachment and got the results here

Its crap, I dont claim its anything but, thats what fisheyes do though LOL

Here's the lens I bought along with a step down to 43mm

Once again, its a toy and on a HD cam its suspect - not too bad for SD stuff though and perfect for web / youtube.

These lenses have a front filter thread which Canon's WD-H43 doesn't. I wonder if the HD-6600 would be 'good enough' for HD, and whether it won't block the IF sensor. TIA.

Neither was I which is why I asked;-)

I'm curious as to whether you would get seriously heavy vignetting with that or....does the adapter compensate in anyway?

I've got an HD-6600Pro 43mm Raynox coming the end of the week for my HV10. I'll be posting some still shots hopefully by the end of the weekend.

i dont get it.. HV20 is a popular camera, but i called Centruy Optics, and Raynox, and neither of them offer a lens that will fit 43mm threads.. Is anyone going to make something for this cam?

Well, Raynox does have the 43mm HD-6600Pro... Personally, I decided to use a 52mm step up ring, the filter & lens selection in this size is way better.

I've used a cheap Sony wide angle (VCL-0637 S) with a step down ring to its 37mm threads and I got no vignetting. I haven't checked, but I'm sure the glass on this Sony wide angle is too cheap for HD though.
