HM700 with 14x Canon Lens can use WCV82SC !!!

Hello all!
I don't know if anybody knows this, cuz I didn't see it anywere, But the WCV82SC can be screwed to the inside mount of the 14x lens hood!

anyone tried that?

if not which WA is the best option?

Hi Asaf,

in 2 Weeks i can give you some information about it, when i get my hm700 with canon lens.

The first ill do, is mounting the jvc wide angle on the canon...

Thats a fine idea, because...it goes up to 70 degrees... by factor 0,82.

greets...

Professional 0.8x wide conversion lens. 82mm.
It will be nearly like the 13xFujinon 3,5 lens - but cheaper, probably with some CAs

Some German distributors say, it don't work with the HM700, you can't zoom in without vignette.

I'm with Eric on this one... at $500+ bucks, i'd like to see a sample video that shows that this WA adapter can be used on the 14X canon lens, and you see no vignette on the wide end...

I can tell you that the Canon 14x lens hood is barely big enough as I found out. I have a rain cover that has a hood and I made the mistake of letting it get past the front of the lens hood. It could be seen at full wide and only 1/32nd of an inch was past the hood.

Although not apples to apples, as a test, I tried to stack a couple filters I used my thin Kasemann CP filter, and just for ha ha's added another standard filter on top. sure enough it vignetted on the wide end of the Canon 14x lens.

The rather thick housing on the WA adapter makes me believe it will be visable before you even get to full wide. Even more is the fact that it mounts onto the hood which projects it out even further.

Please provide more information...

Can you make a picture from the cam with the lens, do you mount the wide-extender inside the hood?!

Pic Files

I made Screenshots from a testshoot.



As first, Wide without WCV and with Canon 14x: (both same distance)




and the second two, Tele without WCV and with Canon 14x: (both same distance)





Theres no vignetting, but i think the CA is heavy with or w/o WCV.
