Excerpt: I bought this converter based on the reviews, but I am very dissapointed. I'm using it with a Nikon 18-55 kit lens on a D5100. It is EXTREMELY soft everywhere except the center (what the kit standard lens covers at 18mm) and suffers from heavy distortion on the edges, as well as slight vignetting. It costs 6-7 times the price of most alternatives and has similar performance (including the cheap Chinese ones).
Excerpt: I bought this to use with a DSLR and 50mm lens. I've used Raynox lenses in the past on Sony VX2100 and image was satisfactory but not so much with DSLR video purposes. When used with a DSLR, images is blurry and ghosting/haze appears.
Excerpt: I Have been using the Raynox 6600 on my Canon Vixia HV30 and it is absolutely amazing. Looks beautiful in footage and on camera. Works as expected or great. There is a much larger radius of frame and thing look much farther than they actually are. Which is good when i was trying to do some long shots The bad: Some of my footage for a short film looked a bit different only because i shot 24 frames per second and with the lens it looks more like 30 frames per second.
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality, Interfaces Well With Camcorder
Excerpt: I just started getting into film and a friend recommended this lens to me and I am very happy with it. Some people I have heard talk about how some areas are low quality but I have not come accross this. Bottom Line: this a a great lens.
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction
