180 degree fisheye lens adapter for xl1s ?

I know that Century's fisheye adapter for the 3x lens will give me 116 degrees but I was hoping for even more. Anything out there that you know of? Thanks.

Not that I have seen or heard of. I would also be interested to know if it exists.

Rafal...have you tried the century fisheye adapter? I have been thinking of getting it myself.

Not yet Josh but I got few unpaid receipts out there so as soon as the customers own up I will most likely buy it...but now another toy entered the market, the new Century Optics anamorphic adapter for the XL1s...decisions, decisions.
Seriously though, I will post some footage here if I get it though.
ALSO, open call to anyone who already owns the Century's fishey lens, do you have any comments you wouldn't mind sharing?

Thanks Rafal. I haven't posted them on here yet, but I really appreciate the feedback. My main concern with posting them is they were made purely for fun/friends and several use copywritten music :(

I will let you know if I splurge and get the fisheye.
