There is the Century 1.6x tele-converter:

And here it is at B&H for $848.95:

If you are using the standard lens on the JVC camera you will need a filter or ring in the end to stiffen the lens. Century makes one for this purpose with no glass in it (but it's kind of expensive, I beleive, at around $80). Or you can use a clear filter.

If you would like more information about the performance of this converter for your uses, I suggest calling (or emailing) the Van Nuys Century office. They have always been very helpful to me. Ryan from there also posts here sometimes, so he may see this.

This would work as well but it causes a 2 f-stops of light loss. The advantage is that it is lighter.
