16x9 Inc's 0.7X WIDE CONVERTER for the H1
I'm trying to find a budgeted solution for a wide angle lens for the H1. I found this one and it seems pretty decent. I was wondering if anyone had heard any good things about it, or had any experience using it???

Yes I have this and there are some Huge problems with it - There is a lot of CA esp. towards tthe edges where it looses focus -
I prefer using a 35mm adapter and a wide angle lense !

Stay away from this 16X9 wide angle - tried it an can confirm the above poster's findings - we returned it.

The Century .8 wide angle converter with adapter ring (real important to get with it to separate the converter glass from the 20X glass) provideds acceptable results.

There is another thread here on the same subject.
