need help with lens adapter

hey everyone first off hope everyone had a great holliday!

I need some help with a lens adapter or add on for the DVX. we have a set built but are not getting enough in camera even againt the back wall, and im hopeing there is some lens that can give us at bit more capture..

Is there anything out there more then a .5 wide angle lens without having the picture distort at the edges? make them round?

or is there something in post that could help this?

Thanks for you help.

Wide angle lenses make the field of view wider. This means that you won't have to be as far away to get more in your shot. Check the thread diameter of your camera, and get a lens whose threads match.

Pete,

Check out the Sample tab on the linked page to our .6x wide angle. This should give you some idea of how much distortion you get. Generally, the wider you go, the more distortion. Rectilinear corrected lenses are lenses that are optically compensated for the natural distortion. Our .6x wide has the least distortion I know of in this class because we work very hard to avoid vignette on your image. As a by product this, our lenses have less distortion than others of the same magnification.
