David,

The only thing I can come up with is to do buy these two pieces. The wide angle also reverses into a Fisheye lens as well. Pretty cool but maybe a bit too big to throw off the form factor of your camera.

Here's what you need and a step-down ring and you're set.

Sanyo makes a WA lens for the HD1000. Any other lens will work, just need a stepup/down ring. I tried the Raynox HD6600 on it (used a 41.5 to 43 ring) and it worked fine. When I get a chance I will put up a demo clip.

I have the Raynox HD6600 in a 43mm and used a 40.5 to 43 step up ring. IMO it works good up to maybe 5x zoom. Above that it starts to get soft. The Sanyo WA converter is the same price as the Raynox but do not know the quality difference http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...NGLE_LENS.html.

My Vimeo videos were mostly done with a Canon HV20. Have not put up any with the Sanyo yet. When I do I will post it here.
