Excerpt: I used this filming large mining equipment in an operation where the vantage point I was in did not let me get complete coverage with the standard. The wide converter was perfect for the situation.
Excerpt: I recently did a shoot in front of a green screen in my home with my Canon XA10. The room isn't small, but we just couldn't get the camera back far enough to get the shot that we needed, so this came in very handy. We were able to get the shots, they came out really nicely, and everyone is happy.
Pros: High Quality, Interfaces Well With Camcorder
Summary: I was a little skeptical when I ordered this; had a special project to film, a Baptist Heritage Seminar - 6 2 hour sessions. I had to be able to get the entire platform into view, singers on the left, speaker in the middle and powerpoint showing overhead.
Excerpt: I bought this converter lens to get better indoor shots at family events with the Grandkids. I got my first chance to use it this weekend. The shots were very smooth and the lens worked just as I had expected.
