Raynox Telextenders for HD Camcorder Use
I've posted a message that includes information about Raynox telextenders in the Still Crazy forum. There are two new Raynox HD-video telexes, one that fits the Sony HC3 and another for the Sony FX1 and Z1. On the Still Crazy posting, I've added two photos that were made with a digital still camera, using the Raynox DCR-2020PRO, a 2.2X telex that has a 260 line-per-millimeter resolution. One new Raynox telex is rated at 280 lines-per-mm resolution and has a 72mm mounting thread, which would fit the FX1 and Z1. It is the HDP-9000EX and gives 1.8X magnification. I believe the 2.1 MP photos I've taken with a still camera and the DCR-2020PRO (260 lpmm), indicates that a 280 lpmm telex would be adequate for an HDV camcorder. I wouldn't recommend the DCR-2020PRO for the FX1 and Z1, as its 62mm thread size is too small and causes vignetting on the larger 72mm camcorders.
