Fisheye adapter for NX5?

Hello!

I would like to know if there's an ultra fisheye adapter available for Sony HXR-NX5 camcoder?

I'm filming a lot of extreme sports like skateboarding. So far I had Sony DCR-VX2100 camcoder and i used CenturyOptics Ultra Fisheye 0.3 adapter. Not long ago I switched to AVCHD camera. I saw one fisheye adapter on Schneider Optics homepage (FISHEYE HD Z7/Z5/NX5/AX2000), but i would like to have much more wider fisheye adapter.

Thanks,
Kristijan

We did not manufacture our .3x Ultra Fisheye for the NX5 becuase there was some vignetting. The widest we offer is the .4x Fisheye Adapter which is listed here and on sale.

Yeah, I guess .3x is too much for NX5. I saw an Opteka .3x fisheye mounted on HMC151 (it's a bit wider than NX5) and had a lot of vignetting, but .4x it was working nicely. So I assume .4x is the minimum for NX5 too.
