tele angle conversion lens for dsc hx1

xelaszym "Jim", Amazon
11 June 2011
  • Summary: This item is just what my wife needed for her new camera. We came back from Switzerland wishing we had more telephoto power. This lens is the answer. It arrived in excellent shape and in a timely fashion.

Great for the money!

bandit69, Amazon
11 April 2011
  • Summary: Great for the money. It easily threads on the existing lens. And provides just that little extra zoom I often wished I had. Great for my wildlife and bird photos. Focus of course is more difficult to achieve as with any long lens. Setting my focus to center helps greatly. You will need to be 10-15 feet away from an object with this lens. Some poor reviews I read had to high of expectations in my opinion. Its certainly no telescope.

A Companion To The Sony DSC-HX1

Donfucious, Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: When I did my research for a new camera, and settled on the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX1 9.1MP Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom with Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization and 3.0 Inch LCD , I browsed through the optional accessories that you could pair up with it. This VCL-DH1757 caught my eye because I had never used an attachment lens at all, let alone on a point-and-shoot (although I freely admit, the HX1 is FAR superior to any point-and-shoot I've ever used).

Nice addition!

Donna C., Amazon
11 May 2010
  • Summary: Nice addition to my Sony DSC-HX1 Camera. The lens screws easily onto the camera making it very easy to mount and remove. Just received this as a gift, but so far the pictures I've taken are clear with no distortion. I'm very pleased with this lens and I'm looking forward to taking some great shots!

Performance as advertised

Dr. C., Amazon
21 October 2009
  • Summary: Performance was as advertised. Overall I am very pleased with the conversion lens. It is very light and does a great job on birds and wildlife...the reason it was purchased. It would be nice if the price was lower, but having experience in purchasing lens for SLR cameras, I am not that upset. $160 versus over $600 for a telephoto lens for a DSLR is fine with me. Photo quality does not suffer even on the edges.

Does what it promises

Peter N. Deweese, Amazon
18 August 2009
  • Summary: This is is a simple product that provides 34x zoom to the hx1. The low end is perhaps 20x, and it is far superior to a typical threaded end of lens addition, as it collects more light than the built in lens and is a compound-lens system. Although it does what it promises, it would be nice if it had its own tripod mount at either the visual or weighted center of the camera-lens combination.

Not as much additional zoom as you'd like.

C. Terry, Amazon
22 July 2009
  • Summary: Seems sturdy and fits well. Not too heavy. Doesn't increase the zoom as much as you'd expect or at least as much as you'd like. I probably wouldn't make the purchase again after seeing the limited additional zoom.

It is not like what I think

Jassim Al-mulla, Amazon
18 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought it, when I try it; it was not what I think. It will increase the Zoom a little bet and if I know, the Zoom will be like what I have now I would not bought it.

good but expensive

Mohamad Al-Karbi "Mohamad Al-Karbi", Amazon
5 July 2009
  • Summary: I believe this item is good and might be an important accessory for DSC-HX1. It's not heavy. However, it complicates the holding the camera a little bit. I like it and I enjoy using it.. I only don't like how much high its price is in comparing to the difference it makes.
