Wide Angle Lense for GY-HD100U

Can someone tell me an inexpensive wide angle lense for the GY-HD100 and approximate price I'm looking at?

Thanks,
Lisa

Inexpensive as in $6,599? Fujinon 13x. Or where you thinking a $199 screw on adapter?

Hi Alex,

Actually, if there is a screw on adapter that would work with my hd100u lense, then for this one project, it would work.

Thanks,
Lisa

BHphotovideo (one of many reputable online places) has a Cavision 82mm screw in type for $199.

They also have the JVC 0.82x Zoom Through Wide Angle Converter Lens for Fujinon TH16x5.5BRMU Lens for $509.

Never seen either one in person, but I trust the JVC one more. But if it's only a couple shots, then it doesn't matter too much.

......maybe try local phtogoraphy shops and look for a wide angle adapter/filter for 82mm or lrager (difficult, most will be 52mm for 35mm style lenses) but you might luck out.

Better idea.........If it's a short duration, maybe check into renting at far better 13x Fujinon lens (super wide) for the weekend for $150 - $200 or so. The 13x Fujinon lens is better than the stock lens and adapterand would ever dream of being.

Century Optics / Schneider have a .7 or .7/.5 for the Fujinon 16 X. A little more expensive but good quality.

Thanks for the guidance on this. Since it's only a couple of shots I think the adapter/filter version will work out.

I'll check into what I can find.

Thank you
Lisa

I've got the .82 jvc adapter.

It's pretty rare that i ever take it off.
Highly recommended.
